Performance during Calculations
The popular SuperPi benchmark doesn’t support multi-threading. That is why dual-core processors turn out slower here that single-core ones.
ScienceMark 2.0 benchmark is quite an interesting one, I should say. Firstly, it supports all contemporary instructions sets and multi-threading, and secondly, there is a revision for Microsoft Windows XP Professional x64 Edition. And the remarkable thing is that the use of 64-bit code for math1ematical modeling tasks performed within this benchmark ensures a pretty significant performance growth. In Molecular Dynamics test it even exceeds 100%.
This test loads the processor computational resources to the full extent and AMD processors run faster in this test than their competitors from Intel. The new Athlon 64 X2 3800+ outperforms its single-core brother in both subtests and becomes an indisputable leader.
