SuperPI is the benchmark of choice for many overclockers. It's lightweight to download and can quickly give a good indication as to how fast your CPU & Memory are in comparison to other systems. Lets see how the Conroe performs...
This shows the efficiency of the C2D architecture. Getting rid of the long pipelines in Intel's Netburst architecture has really helped the Core 2 Duo, with the SuperPI benchmark really showing how fast the C2D's are.
Sisoft Sandra is a synthetic benchmark utility capable of reporting and benchmarking a wide range of system components.
The memory based benchmarks show us the major advantage of having a processor with Intel's Smart Memory Access incorporated. Reducing the memory latency by 26ns and increasing the bandwidth by around 500-600 mb/s, the Conroe shows a significant advantage over its predecessor. This is an area where previous Intel chips where falling far behind AMD, however with the change to the core architecture, Intel have managed to play catch up.
