CinebenchR10 analyses the speed at which a processor renders a high resolution image and outputs a score accordingly. The test was carried out in singlethreaded and multithreaded mode.
Substantial performance increases were noted from the overall overclock, forcing the multithreaded rendering time under one minute. The processor's lack of Hyperthreading Technology does hurt it's performance in this particular benchmark as a Core i7 of a considerably lower frequency could match this score.
WinRAR's embedded Benchmark focuses on the processor's File Compression capability.
The results of the overclock did not translate to a particularly significant increase in compression rate but the results overall are very good.
SiSoftware Sandra (the System ANalyser, Diagnostic and Reporting Assistant) is an information & diagnostic utility capable of benchmarking the performance of individual components inside a PC.
Again, the performance increase is notable and the scores themselves pitch the Phenom II against the lower end of Core i7 processors according to SANDRA's generic list of scores.
