    AMD Phenom X4 9950 BE & 9350e Review
    By Vince Freeman :  July 2, 2008

    PCMark05 Pro Performance

    PCMark05 Professional is the latest update to the popular PCMark system benchmarking series from FutureMark, and is revamped to highlight current hardware and features additional multithreaded and multi-tasking performance tests. There is the usual selection of individual System, CPU, Memory, Graphics, and Hard Drive benchmark suites, and these continue to bridge the gap between synthetic and application-based benchmarks. For our purposes, the System, CPU and Memory areas will be where we concentrate our benchmarking efforts.

    The PCMark05 System benchmark suite includes a wide range of tests, from Windows XP hard drive startup to video and audio encoding, and features a selection of standard desktop routines like text edit, virus scanning, and image decompression. Three of the benchmark scenarios are multithreaded, with the first two including two simultaneous tests, and the final one utilizing four program tests running simultaneously. This helps make the PCMark05 System benchmark a great analysis tool for our dual and quad core processors. For this test, the latest 1.2 patch + hotfix has been applied.

    As expected, the Phenom X4 9950 BE scores well in the PCMark05 System test, and finishes almost on par with the Core 2 Quad Q6700. It still falls back of the two Core 2 Duo processors, while the Phenom X4 9350e drops to the bottom of the chart, even behind the Athlon 64 X2 6000+.

    The PCMark05 CPU test doesn't really change much, other than the Phenom X4 9950 BE now matching the Core 2 Quad Q6600, while the 2.0 GHz Phenom X4 9350e takes its customary last-place position.

    The PCMark05 Memory benchmarking certainly doesn't show the Phenom architecture in the best light, but the Phenom X4 9950 BE and 9350e post scores on par with expectations.
