AMD Phenom II X2 555 Black Edition 3.2 GHz Socket AM3 Processor Review

AMD Phenom II X2 555 Black Edition 3.2 GHz Socket AM3 Processor Review - PCSTATS
Abstract: AMD is kicking off 2010 by introducing new low-power versions of some its most popular processors and bumping up the speed of a select few Phenom II and Athlon II CPUs. Today PCSTATS is looking at the 3.2GHz AMD Phenom II X2 555 Black Edition processor.

CPU Calculation Benchmarks: ScienceMark2.3, WinRAR

ScienceMark 2.3 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.

The Phenom II X2 555 Black Edition is one of the fastest processors in the dual-core Primordia test (lower times are best), second only to the Phenom II X4 965 and 955 processors. The Mol Dyn ibenchmark is more biased towads Intel processors, but the Phenom II X2 555 Black Edition still manages a respectable score here as well, where clock speed is more important than the number of compute cores.

No real changes to report here. Win7 results mirror those of Vista.

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.

WinRAR's internal benchmark loves multiple cores and cache efficiency, which means that the Phenom II X2 555 Black Edition suffers a bit in this benchmark, although its high clock speeds still alllow it to pull ahead of the other dual core processors.

The Phenom II X2 555 Black Edition tanks in WinRAR, but this result is more likely due to changes in hard drive performance than processor speed.
