PCMark 2005 is a perfect benchmark example of how the synthetic CPU tests favor the Pentium XE 965 while its memory workloads take advantage of the higher DDR2 bandwidth of the Athlon 64 FX-62.

Again, both the Athlon 64 FX-62 and Pentium XE 965 are outclassed even by the lowest Core 2 Duo processor in this review.
