The FX-64 Lives! (AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+)

By Vijay Anand - 20 Feb 2007

Results - Quake 4

In the popular Quake 4 benchmark, we see the Athlon 64 X2 6000+ on equal footing with the Core 2 Duo E6600 processor, but still falls short of the E6700's standard by a notable margin. While the Athon 64 X2 6000+ is plenty fast enough with a GeForce 7900 GT in this game (at this particular test settings), but so are all other processors in this comparison. The real question is which processor offers more performance to better outlast the rest of them when faced with the real crunch. Obviously, the higher the performance figures, the better, so the Core 2 Duo series still gets the nod here.
