AMD Athlon X2 BE-2350 and BE-2300 "Brisbane" Processors

Synthetic Testing Analysis with SiSoft Sandra - CPU & Memory

Next we are going to shift our focus to performance to see what impact, if any, the reduced power design of the Athlon X2 BE-2350 has on the CPU's actual performance.

Synthetic Performance Metrics - CPU & Memory

In our first round of tests, we focused on synthetic testing with SANDRA XI.  First we started with the basics, running the Arithmetic, Multi-Media, and Memory Bandwidth modules.



Neither CPU based test returned any results that were out of the ordinary.  With the Athlon X2 BE-2350 essentially the same as the reference 4000+, we expect these results to track closely.  In both the Arithmetic and Multi-Media modules, the BE-2350 lagged slightly behind the 4000+, however, the differences were minimal. 


Looking at memory performance, we saw the Athlon X2 BE-2350 lag slightly behind the Athlon 64 X2 4000+ by a small margin, whereas the Windsor based 3800+ was more noticeable with its lower clock speed.
