Performance

General Performance

The results of our tested processors in complex performance benchmarks are quite natural. Overall, the CPUs lined up on the diagrams according to their price. The only thing I would like to specifically point out is the advantage of Athlon X2 in Productivity pattern, which indicates that office applications benefit from large cache-memory, and the advantage of CPUs on Core microarchitecture during 3D image creation and editing.

By the way I should also draw your attention to a significant advantage of the new Athlon X2 on Kuma core over the older generation Athlon X2 6000. It illustrates very well the advantage of K10 (Stars) microarchitecture over the previous K8 microarchitecture. However, this advantage is not big enough to make dual-core AMD processors competitive against Intel Core 2 Duo. Unfortunately, in terms of performance, they lose even to the top Pentium models.
