The Inquirer has seen some benchmark resulres of the upcoming AMD Athlon 64 FX 60 processor and claims this dual-core 2.6GHz processor performs less than the single-core FX57 which is clocked at 2.8GHz.
Even though the FX 60 has two cores, the slower clock results in poorer performance. Two X1800 XT Master card edition in Crossfire with standard X1800XT scores 13560 with the FX 60 CPU while the FX 57 scores 14200 in 3Dmark05. It's very simple - the faster clock beats its competition.
