Other Resource-Hungry Applications
The top Kuma CPUs render almost as fast as the top Brisbane processors working at 400MHz higher clock frequency. As a result, Athlon X2 6000 and Athlon X2 7750 perform practically identical to Intel Pentium DC E5300.
The new Photoshop version, CS4, turns out not the best application for the new AMD CPUs. And although the new Athlon X2 processors demonstrate higher performance raising the bar for the dual-core AMD solutions in this application, they are still dramatically behind Intel products.
However, Athlon X2 7750 and 7550 can definitely please us with their speed during archiving. Thanks to L3 cache memory, they manage to outperform not only their predecessors but also Intel competitors.
