    Athlon 64 FX-57 Processor Review
    By Vince Freeman :  June 27, 2005

    Business Winstone 2004 Performance

    The Business Winstone 2004 suite from ZD Labs is the same type of application-based PC benchmark line we've been using for years. It still makes use of real-world tests like word processing, spreadsheets, web browsing and formatting, as well as file compression, anti-virus scanning and email. A multi-tasking component has also been added, and the base requirements have been upgraded quite significantly. As usual, this suite of programs is run from a batch script that attempts to accurately emulate a business system load, and then supplies us with a final performance rating.

    AMD has led the field in Business Winstone benchmarking for a while now, and the 2.8 GHz of Athlon 64 FX-57 power add yet another notch to the AMD belt. It easily surpasses both the Pentium 4-3.73 GHz EE and Pentium EE 840 processors, as well as improving a bit on the scores of the AMD Athlon 64 FX-55 and X2 4800+ processors. The single-core Athlon 64 FX models give up a little to the dual core Athlon 64 X2, at least on a relative clock-for-clock basis, but the higher 2.8 GHz speed does give the Athlon 64 FX-57 a slight edge.

    Content Creation Winstone 2004 Performance

    Content Creation Winstone 2004 is the second part of the Winstone desktop line, and is another application-based test suite, which includes hot programs like Photoshop, Macromedia Director, LightWave, Wavelab, and many others. This latest version also includes Windows Media Encoder 9, which means the AMD and Intel processor features are fully recognized and supported. This is a very demanding system benchmark, and makes a great comparison tool for our high-end testing and when comparing performance levels using high-end multimedia software.

    Also note is that the 1.0.1 update patch has enabled multi-processor/threading and Hyper-Threading support in the LightWave section of the test.

    Content Creation Winstone 2004 tells much the same story, but in this case, a higher clock speed tends to pay off more than it did in Business Winstone. As expected, the Athlon 64 FX-57 does set a new SE record in this benchmark, and it not only manhandles the Intel competition, but is also the first processor to break the 40 Content Creation Winstone mark.
