AMD Phenom II X2 550 Black Edition 3.1 GHz Socket AM3 Processor Review

AMD Phenom II X2 550 Black Edition 3.1 GHz Socket AM3 Processor Review - PCSTATS
Abstract: AMD's suggested retail price for the Phenom II X2 550 processor is a mere $103 USD ($110 CDN, £62 GBP), which positions it right between Intel's 2.6GHz E5300 processor and the Core 2 Duo 2.8GHz E7400 processor. This makes it both an inexpensive, easy upgrade for those looking to drop it into an existing socket AM2+ motherboard. The 3.1GHz clockspeed and potential overclocking headroom....

CPU Rendering Benchmarks: Cinebench R10, Bibble 5

Cinebench R10 Source: CINEBENCH

CINEBENCH is a real-world test suite that assesses your computer's performace capabilities. CINEBENCH runs several tests on your computer to measure the performance of the main processor under real world circumstances. The benchmark application makes use of up to 16 CPUs or CPU cores to render a photo-reaslistic image. The scene makes use of various CPU-intensive features such as reflection, ambient occlusion, area lights and procedural shaders. In the first run, the benchmark only uses one CPU (or CPU core), to ascertain a reference value. On computers that have multiple CPUs or CPU cores and on those who simulate multiple CPUs (via HyperThreading or similar technolgies), MAXON CINEBENCH will run a second test using all available CPU power. Higher results are best. Cinebench is multi-threaded.

Again, this test, like pretty much any kind of 3D ray-tracing, is designed for multi-core processors, and the Phenom II X2 550 Black Edition is clearly out of its depth here. Still, for a $100 processor these results aren't bad.

Bibble 5.0 Source: Bibble Labs

Bibble 5 is a multi-threaded photographic workflow application that can be used to demonstrate the ability to scale work load across 4, 8, 16 or more processor cores. The basic process we will use for benchmarking is to convert a batch of 50 RAW image files from a digital SLR camera from their original RAW format to JPEG's at full resolution, using the applications default image settings.

Lower results are best.

AMD Phenom II X3 720 Black Edition (DDR3) 31.2
AMD Phenom II X2 550 Black Edition 38.3

Bibble giveth and Bibble taketh away. This multi-core application has the Phenom II X2 550 Black Edition in dead last, significantly slower than either of the Core 2 Duo processors.
