Futuremark: Synthetic Benchmarks
Pentium E2160 and E2140 processors do not work any wonders in the popular 3DMark06 testing suite. Nevertheless, they still show some performance advantage over the predecessors and competitors from the same price range. Although Athlon 64 X2 3600+ still manages to slightly surpass Pentium E2140 working at radically lower 1.6GHz clock speed.
PCMark05 is pretty well optimized for processors with NetBurst micro-architecture, so the leadership here belongs to Pentium D CPUs. New Pentium E2000 processors win the second prize defeating the Athlon 64 X2 processors with corresponding prices.
