Intel Core 2 Duo E8500 3.16GHz 1333MHz FSB Processor Review

Intel Core 2 Duo E8500 3.16GHz 1333MHz FSB Processor Review - PCSTATS
Abstract: The 3.16GHz Intel Core 2 Duo E8500 CPU is a dual-core chip based on the 45nm 'Wolfdale' core that falls into the upper end of family, supplanted only by the relatively expensive Core 2 Duo E8600.

32-Bit CPU Synthetic Benchmarks: SiSoft Sandra Processor / Memory

SiSoft Sandra 2009 - Processor 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. Higher results are best.

All of SiSoft's processor benchmarks make good use of parallel processing, so the Core 2 Duo processors don't stand much of a chance here against the monster Core i7 920's performance.

The Core 2 Duo E8500's memory performance has a lot of bottlenecks it has to put up with, including slower DDR3 memory frequencies, dual-channel bandwidth instead of triple-channel, and having to rely on a northbridge memory controller instead of having a memory controller on-chip. All of this adds up to good overall memory performance, but nowhere near that of Intel's new Core i7 processors.
