In Cinebench 2003's highly-threaded rendering benchmark, we once again saw similar performance standings where the Athlon 64 X2 6000+ leads its predecessor by around 6%, but still ends up slower than a Core 2 Duo E6700 processor.

In our Xmpeg DivX encoding tests, we found the Athlon 64 X2 6000+ to be 7% speedier than the FX-62 part by shaving 42 seconds off the 1GB test file encoded. Unfortunately, this is still over 10% slower than even the Core 2 Duo E6600 which manages to complete nearly a minute faster than the newcomer from AMD.
