AMD Athlon64 FX-60 Dual Core Processor Review

AMD Athlon64 FX-60 Dual Core Processor Review - PCSTATS
Abstract: It's important to note that each core has its own 128KB L1 and 1MB L2 cache; so essentially what we have here are two Athlon64 FX-55's squeezed into one package.

Pure 32-Bit Benchmarks: Winstone 2004, SiSoft Sandra 2005

Winstone 2004 Source: Zdnet

Business Winstone 2004 runs real applications through a series of scripted activities and uses the time a PC takes to complete these activities to produce its performance scores.

Content Creation Winstone 2004 is a system-level, application-based benchmark that measures a PC's overall performance when running top, Windows-based, 32-bit, content creation applications in Windows XP.

Winstone 2004
Business Winstone 2004: Points Ranking
Intel Pentium D 840 25.3
AMD Athlon64 X2 4800+ 31.8
AMD Athlon64 FX-60 33.3
AMD Athlon64 FX-60 @ 2.88 GHz 35.2
Content Creation 2004: Points Ranking
Intel Pentium D 840 33.7
AMD Athlon64 X2 4800+ 41.4
AMD Athlon64 FX-60 43.6
AMD Athlon64 FX-60 @ 2.88 GHz 45.8

In the Winstone 2004 tests both AMD chips hold a healthy lead over Intel's dual core Pentium D 840. The AMD Athlon64 X2 4800+ and FX-60 perform quite closely, although the FX-60 obviously comes out with the better scores. When overclocked, the Athlon64 FX-60 scores about 30% higher than the Intel Pentium D 840 at stock! The Athlon64 certainly holds a lot of promise for office computer systems, now only if Dell would get the message...

SiSoft Sandra 2005 Source: Sandra

Sandra is designed to test the theoretical power of a complete system and individual components. The numbers taken though are again, purely theoretical and may not represent real world performance.

SiSoft Sandra 2005 is good at determining a processor's theoretical power. From the results here, it's clear that the AMD Athlon64 FX-60 is the most powerful desktop processor on the market that PCSTATS has yet tested. At stock speeds, its memory bandwidth seems a bit on the low side, but it's worth recalling that the memory controller is not sharing bandwidth between the two physical cores.
