Synthetic Testing Analysis with SiSoft Sandra Continued - CPU

Now that we've got a good picture of how the "Brisbane" and "Windsor" cores compare with regards to power consumption and thermal performance, we'll shift our focus to performance.

Synthetic Performance Metrics - CPU
SANDRA 2007

In our first round of tests, we focused on CPU performance, doing an apples-to-apples comparison between the "Brisbane" and "Windsor" based Athlon 64 X2 5000+ processors.  The first test run was SANDRA's Arithmetic Test followed by the Multi-Media test component.

Multi-Media Test

Multi-Media Test

 

When we do a side-by-side comparison of the Arithmetic test results, we see the "Brisbane" core held a small edge over the "Windsor" by 23 MIPS while Whetstone results swung the other way, with the "Windsor" core leading by 49 MFLOPS.  With the Multi-Media test, we saw the 65m "Brisbane" top the "Windsor" in both Integer and Floating-Point calculations, with the Floating-Point calculations showing the widest margins at 94 it/s vs the integer test which recorded a 21 it/s difference.
