The first group of the results obtained in complex SYSmark 2007 suite estimating the average systems performance during typical tasks processing gives us excellent material for conclusions. We have already pointed out that new Intel processors on 45nm cores have raised the dual-core processor performance standards significantly. The same is true this time, too: the entire Core 2 Duo E8000 family is very much ahead of the AMD processors and Intel CPUs on older cores. As for other dual-core CPUs, their performance numbers get into a very close group. As you can see, top AMD solutions are a little ahead of Core 2 Duo E4000 processors, while the youngest Athlon 64 X2 compete successfully against dual-core Celeron E1200 and even Pentium E2160.
