AMD Athlon II X2 250 3.0 GHz Socket AM3 Processor Review - PCSTATS
Abstract: Enter the socket AM3, AMD Athlon II X2 250 microprocessor - a new 3.0GHz mainstream dual-core chip based on the Phenom 'Deneb' architecture, but crucially stripped of all L3 cache.

32-Bit CPU Synthetic Gaming Benchmarks: 3DMark Vantage, 3DMark 06

Futuremark 3DMark Vantage Source: FutureMark

3DMark Vantage is a PC benchmark suite designed to test the DirectX10 performance of your graphics card. We’ve been making 3DMark for over 10 years, with each new edition using the latest 3D technology to determine real-world performance. A 3DMark score is an overall measure of your system’s 3D gaming capabilities, based on comprehensive real-time 3D graphics and processor tests. By comparing your score with those submitted by millions of other gamers you can see how your gaming rig performs, making it easier to choose the most effective upgrades or finding other ways to optimize your system.

Higher results are better.

Since the Phenom II X3 720 Black Edition processor was tested a few months before the testing of the Phenom II X2 550 Black Edition, the Phenom II X4 955 and the Athlon II X2 250, there have been some changes to the overall test platform that will skew the results somewhat: the 720BE, E8400 and E8500 were tested using a Geforce 8800GTS videocard, while the Athlon II X2 550, Phenom II X2 550 Black Edition, 955BE and Core i7 920 use a Geforce GTS 250 graphics card. This is also true for the remaining benchmarks in this review.

The Athlon II X2 250 is again pretty close to the Phenom 550BE, although neither of them can keep up with the Intel Core 2 Duo's in this benchmark.

3DMark06 also puts the CPU scores for the dual-core AMD processors very close to each other. In this test both AMD processors are about 15% slower than the Intel Core 2 Duo processors.
