AMD Phenom 9600 Black Edition Quad Core CPU
Cinebench 10 is a benchmarking tool based on the powerful 3D software Cinema 4D. The suite uses complex renders to guage the performance of the entire PC system in both single-core and multi-core modes. Testing was performed a total of 5 times with the highest and lowest results being omitted and an average created from the remaining 3 results.
Cinebench shows that whilst the Phenom does fairly well in multi-threaded applications, the pure speed of the Intel chip prevails.
3DMark is a popular synthetic gaming benchmark used by many gamers and overclockers to gauge the performance of their PC's. All 3DMark runs were performed a total of 5 times with the highest and lowest results being removed and an average calculated from the remaining 3 results.
In a strangely reversed situation, the Core 2 Quad is beaten in the 3DMark tests by a few points. I'm not quite sure exactly why this is the case, although 3Dmark06 saw the CPU utilization up to 100% across all four cores
