AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition 3.4 GHz Socket AM3 Processor Review

AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition 3.4 GHz Socket AM3 Processor Review - PCSTATS
Abstract: AMD's 3.4GHz Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition processor represents a slight clock speed increase over the previous forerunner, the quad-core 955 Black Edition, and competes with Intel's existing quad-core family of socket 775 CPUs.

32-Bit CPU Calculation Benchmarks: ScienceMark2, WinRAR

ScienceMark 2.0 Source: ScienceMark

Mol Dyn: Molecular Dynamics is a method for simulating the thermodynamic behaviour of materials using their forces, velocities, and positions. Most important of the afore mentioned is the force. Primordia: This code calculates the Quantum Mechanical Hartree-Fock Orbital for each electron in any element of the periodic table Lower times indicate better results.

Lower calculation times are better.

ScienceMark illustrates just how much optimization can affect a processor's performance. The Primordia benchmark places the AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition in the lead by a significant margin, and it doesn't seem to favour the Core i7 920 at all. The Mol Dun benchmark is a win for the Core i7, with the Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition dropping to third place overall, just ahead of the Core 2 Duo E 8400.

WinRAR Internal Benchmark Source: RARLabs

This command generates random data, which contain specially introduced redundancy increasing load to processor and memory. Then data are passed through RAR compression and decompression algorithms and output of decompression algorithm is compared with source data. If any difference found, WinRAR reports "Errors found - Yes" in the command window. Also WinRAR displays a size of processed data and compression speed, current and resulting, in kilobytes per second. You may use the resulting speed value to compare RAR performance in different conditions.

Higher results are better.

Again, the Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition is doing very well here, it's the fastest AMD processor PCSTATS has yet tested. While it's still behind the Core i7 920 in terms of overall performance in this benchmark, it's a more affordable chip and less expensive platform. The two dual-core Core 2 Duo processors suffer badly against WinRARs internal test...
