Clock for Clock: Phenom vs. Core 2 Performance

Posted on Thursday, Jan 03 2008 @ 00:15 CET by Thomas De Maesschalck
In this article we take the new Phenom 9500 quad-core processor from AMD that is designed to operate at 2.20GHz and compare it to an Intel Core 2 Duo and Quad processor operating at the exact same frequency. This has been done to see just how different the performance of these two architectures really is when operating at the same frequency...

There you have it, a clock for clock comparison between the Phenom and Core 2 Duo/Quad processors with the Athlon64 X2 thrown in for reference. It has been interesting to see how these processors compare at the same clock frequency. Clearly the Core 2 Quad and even the Duo in many circumstances are superior processors when compared to the new Phenom and this is something many of you will have been aware of for some time now...
