AMD Phenom II X6 1100T BE Review
WPrime is an excellent multicore compliant alternative to SuperPi.
Interestingly we find the 1100T BE and the i7 950 very well matched in the WPrime benchmark.
Persistence Of Vision RAYtracer is an application for creating three dimensional graphics. Within the program is a very popular benchmark that measures the processor's ability to render such images.
The PovRay result was particularly strange. Not only did the i7 950 lose out in terms of the overall Multithreaded score, the Intel also left with a low "Per CPU" score as well.
The latest iteration of Cinebench's rendering benchmark takes greater advantage of multiple cores. With this in mind, what better way to test a processor with no less than six cores?
Here we see the 1100T BE taking a small lead over the equivalently priced i7 950. Unsurprisingly, the overclocked processor is nothing short of unstoppable.
PCMark Vantage is Futuremark's flagship "System Wide" benchmark. With a large focus on day to day operations, it's an excellent means of judging the capability of a computer as a whole.
Another win for team Green. Despite a high Game score, the i7 950 fell short in all other sub tests. From here on we will be taking a look at 3D and Game benchmarks.
