System Benchmarks: 3DMark (CPU) / WPrime
System Benchmarks (pg.3)
3DMark06 CPU While 3DMark06 may be a slightly older synthetic benchmark, its CPU test still allows for multi threaded performance evaluations within a gaming environment. It effectively removes the CPU from the equation, generating a CPU-centric score.
WPrime wPrime is a leading multithreaded benchmark for x86 processors that tests your processor performance by calculating square roots with a recursive call of Newton's method for estimating functions, with f(x)=x2-k, where k is the number we're sqrting, until Sgn(f(x)/f'(x)) does not equal that of the previous iteration, starting with an estimation of k/2. It then uses an iterative calling of the estimation method a set amount of times to increase the accuracy of the results. It then confirms that n(k)2=k to ensure the calculation was correct. It repeats this for all numbers from 1 to the requested maximum. This is a highly multi-threaded workload. Below are the scores for the 32M and 1024M benchmarks. RESULTS:
Both of these tests show slightly different results. On one hand the 3DMark CPU test shows how the AMD processors can shine in certain situations but the WPrime results tell a different story. While the 6-core FX-6300 can leverage its additional threads to stay ahead of the i3 processors, the FX-4300 gets spanked.
