Fritz and Folding@Home are another two examples where “pure” computations power of the CPU is important. So processors with higher IPC win in these tests, and Phenom II X4 920 is evidently not one of them. Overclocking Phenom II X4 920 doesn’t help here either. The only consolation is outperforming a much more expensive Core 2 Quad Q9650.
The situation in Photoshop is also not the best for Phenom II X4 920. With or without overclocking, it yields to its main rival – Core 2 Quad Q8300.
However, the results of the WinRAR test will be a real pleaser for AMD fans. The new AMD CPU as always scores very high in this application.
