    Some of those results appear a bit dodgy.. The Athlon II X4 is beaten in most benchmarks by the much older X2 6000+. What gives?
  • wild9
    Herr, the tests appear to be based on single-core performance. The Athlon II x2 260 (around £35) seems to do a decent job at beating that older x2 6000+, and no doubt runs a bit cooler. I wanted to get such a chip for my relatives PC but they have an old AM2 board rather than AM2+.

    Also, that Intel Pentium 4 HT 660 (3.6GHz) really seems to take a slaughtering in some of the tests despite its high clock speed. You can see why Intel went over to Core 2 with performance like that..
  • Herr_Koos
    Still, the single-core performance of a Athlon II should not be worse than the old Athlon 64's.
