We are beginning our investigation of the desktop dual-core processors performance. In this review we are going to tell you everything about the AMD dual-core solution: general info, performance tests, overclocking experiments, power consumption and heat dissipation analysis.
Performance in Data Compression Applications
Unfortunately, WinRAR doesn’t support multi-threading that is why our Athlon 64 X2 4800+ performed almost the same as the regular Athlon 64 4000+.
However, there are some archiving utilities that can make good use of the dual-core architecture. Take, for instance, 7zip. The results obtained in this application make the price you pay for the dual-core Athlon 64 X2 absolutely justified.
