Core 2 Duo Testing In Progress
« on: August 02, 2006, 06:56:12 AM »
We are testing out a Core 2 Duo E6600 CPU here right now and we are running the following game/application benchmarks:

Games:
  • Age Of Empires 3
  • Call Of Duty 2
  • Half-Life 2: Episode 1
  • Oblivion
  • Quake 4
  • Tomb Raider: Legend

Applications:
  • Audio Conversion
  • DivX Encoding
  • Quicktime Encoding
  • WinRAR Compression, Extracting
  • Photoshop CS2
  • XML Parsing (Ultima Online Server Scripts)

We have some interesting numbers to compare some of these test too.  It should be an interesting review.  Stay tuned!! ;)

Are you going to bother with Synthetic benchmarks? such as Sisoft Sandra, 3Dmark series, etc

If you'd like them included, I'm willing to do that.  Although you must speak up quickly because tonight we start testing the other side of the other CPU on this board.  I will included Sandra for cpu and memory benchmarks, but I won't likely include any of the 3DMark series.
