AMD Phenom X3 performance analyzed

Posted on Tuesday, November 27 2007 @ 02:03:05 CET by

German PC site PC Gaming Hardware simulated the performance of the Phenom X3 processor by disabling one of the four cores of a 2.3GHz Phenom X4 9600 processor.
Their simulated X3 processor is faster than their 2.3GHz Athlon 64 X2 4400+ and another simulated processor, a Phenom X2 at 2.3GHz, which in other words was the same Phenom X4 9600 with two cores dissabled.

It didn't come close an Intel Q6600 that was also used for comparitive testing and the benchmarks were limited to WinRAR, Cinebench R10 and 3DMark06's CPU test. As everyone have already guessed by now, three cores are faster than two, but not as fast as four, so there you go.
