Performance in Scientific Applications

Strange as it might seem, but the Windows XP versions of popular math1ematical packages, such as MATLAB and Mathematica, do not support multi-threading. Therefore, Athlon 64 X2 4800+ runs like Athlon 64 4000+, getting just a little faster sometimes due to better optimized memory controller.

However many math1ematical modeling tasks can split the calculations into better optimized parallel threads thus ensuring a significant performance improvement in case of dual-core CPUs. You can see it from the results of our ScienceMark test.
