Performance

Futuremark: Synthetic Benchmarks

In the popular 3DMark06 test AMD Athlon 64 X2 and Intel Core 2 Duo show some parity. The CPUs from these similarly priced processor families perform equally fast with a slight advantage in favor of products on Core micro-architecture. As for the Pentium D performance, it proved surprisingly decent for solutions based on obsolete NetBurst micro-architecture. Although these CPUs are slower than Core 2 Duo, they offer better price-to-performance ratio than the Athlon 64 X2 processors.

Another test, Futuremark PCMark05, checks the general system performance, not just the gaming speed. This test demonstrated slightly different results. Core 2 Duo family takes the lead here leaving competitors from AMD far behind. Pentium D family also performs quite well here. These processors can even catch up with a few more up-to-date Core 2 Duo representatives in the CPU subtest.
