AMD 1090T Six Core Review
wPrime runs a very complex mathmatical equation and is a good test of the pure computational power of each CPU. As you can clearly see the 1090T is no slouch at all and in overclock trim actually bests the i7 930. The more tests we run, the more impressive this Six Core beast from AMD becomes.
Maxon's CineBench Release 11.5 is a rendering benchmark that pushes a CPU to its limits. If anything will take advantage of all the horsepower you can give it, it's rendering. Once again we see that even heavily overclocked the 965BE has been roundly overtaken as the weapon of choice for AMD owners, and the overclocked AMD Phenom II X6 1090T takes first prize again.
The Persistence Of Vision Raytracer is probably the ultimate test. If rendering takes a lot of power, Ray-Tracing has never shied away from eating CPUs up and spitting them out for breakfast. Thankfully modern CPUs are such that the "leave it overnight" days of early Raytracing are long behind us.
In a total non-shock the X6 1090T romps home in first place again when overclocked, and easily takes third. The low "Per CPU" score of the i7 demonstrates that Hyper-Threading most definitely isn't overhead free. Although it reports 8 cores it clearly can't utilise all the threads all the time, hence the low Per CPU score.
