Intel Conroe benchmarks follow-up

Posted on Friday, March 10 2006 @ 02:11:38 CET by

A bunch of people couldn't believe Intel's Conroe processor scored so much better than an overclocked AMD Athlon FX-60 so they started writing and blogging that Intel faked the tests results.

Intel has nothing to gain with falsifying benchmarks for a product that will be in stores within six months, so I don't believe they faked anything on purpose. Anyway, Anand decided to provide a follow-up on the benchmark results he posted two days ago.
First, some insight into how the whole situation went down. Intel offered all of its press contacts a chance to spend 1 hour with the Conroe and Athlon 64 FX-60 systems it had setup. Although it doesn’t seem like a lot of benchmarking given that we only tested four games (at one resolution) and three applications, keep in mind that we ran each test at least three times and spent a good deal of time checking the configuration of the systems.

Intel had two systems setup, side-by-side, and claimed to do its best to make them comparable. We did our best to confirm those claims, and from what we could tell they were legitimate.
