Intel's Core Duo holds its own in synthetic tests quite well. In raw CPU performance, the Core Duo can easily outpace Intel's new Pentium-D 900-series processors, despite a huge raw clock speed advantage in the Pentium-D's favor. Our Athlon64 X2 4800+, however, was able to outperform both Intel setups, in terms of raw CPU performance and memory bandwidth. Despite a new dual-channel DDR2-667 interface, the Core Duo on the N4L-VM HD only utilizes around 4 GB/s of its theoretical 10 GB/s bandwidth ceiling.
