AMD Athlon II X3 435 2.9 GHz Socket AM3 Triple-Core Processor Review

AMD Athlon II X3 435 2.9 GHz Socket AM3 Triple-Core Processor Review - PCSTATS
Abstract: Enter the AMD Athlon II X3 435 processor, the focus of this PCSTATS review. It's a 2.9GHz triple-core socket AM3 CPU built on the Propus die. So is it better to get a dual core CPU, a triple-core CPU or a quad-core CPU?

32-Bit CPU Calculation Benchmarks: wPrime2.0

wPrime 2.0 Source: WPrime

wPrime uses a recursive call of Newton's method for estimating functions, with f(x)=x2-k, where k is the number we're sqrting, until Sgn(f(x)/f'(x)) does not equal that of the previous iteration, starting with an estimation of k/2. It then uses an iterative calling of the estimation method a set amount of times to increase the accuracy of the results. It then confirms that n(k)2=k to ensure the calculation was correct. It repeats this for all numbers from 1 to the requested maximum.

Lower calculation times are better. wPrime is multi-threaded.

While the Athlon II X3 435 was hurting in the previous single-threaded benchmarks, here it can finally put all three of its cores to work. The results are easy victories over all of the dual-core processors on the test bench, the Athlon II X3 435 even manages to edge out AMD's other triple core processor, the Phenom II X3 720 Black Edition.

Windows 7 benchmarks look much the same as Windows Vista, with only a tenth of a second improvement in the time it takes to caculate prime numbers to 32 million digits.
