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 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.
