Giant roundup: 168 Intel and AMD processors!
by Marc Prieur
Published on November 3, 2010

Although individual app results are worth looking at, we have calculated a performance index based on all tests with the same weight for each test. An index of 100 is attributed to the Intel Core 2 Q6600.

If you look a little closer at this graph, you’ll see that since the launch of its first dual core, the Pentium Extreme Edition 840 in April 2005, Intel has managed to multiply performance by a factor of 5.1 with the Core i7-980X, released five years later. On the AMD side, things are less rosy with the difference in performance between the Athlon 64 X2 4800+ and the Phenom II X6 1090T only amounting to a factor of 3: what was a leading position has become a deficit.

Processors that were previously very high end, namely the Pentium EE 840 and 965, are now completely eclipsed with even the Celeron E1500 and E3200 doing better. The Core 2 X6800, best of the best in 2006, has been caught up by the Pentium E6500. On the AMD side you can also see that the Athlon 64 X2 6400+ doesn’t look so good compared to a “simple” Athlon II X2 240, while the Phenom X4 9950 has been overtaken by the Athlon II X4 620 now on sale at under €100!
