Where can I find a benchmark of Athlon II X2 270 and Athlon X2 4800+

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I'm looking to upgrade my CPU (Athlon X2 4800+) that is 5 years old and I'm wanting to find some benchmarks on
-x264 encoding
-Winrar
-Gaming
-Audio Encoding

Comparing a Athlon II X2 270(approx) and Athlon X2 4800+ (approx)

I've found plenty of Athlon II X2 270 reviews with benchmarks, but the other CPUs it test are always the latest generation CPUs. I understand why they do this. But what about for people upgrading?

You're going to have some problems finding a direct comparison between these two CPUs, afterall the 4800+ has been launched 7 years ago! Aside from that though I can give some insight since I was the happy user of a very OCed 4400+ Brisbane:
*Upon upgrading from the 3.2GHz 4400+ to a Dual Core Pentium I have felt almost no increase in performance although the Pentium 5200+ @3.4GHz was supposed to be much faster. Benches have showed a performance boost, but not anything special
*Upgrading again to the current Phenom II made a big difference in threaded apps like converters/encoders and a mild but noticeable increase in games due to the 6MB L3 cache

Here's a comparison with how good are different CPUs for games, this is the only direct comparison I've managed to find and it's pretty accurate:
http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gaming-cpu-review-overclock,3106-5.html

My 2 cents: If you're at the regged edge of performance wit the 4800+ and 5% would make a real difference between usable and non-usable, then go for the 270. A better choice would be a Phenom II with as many cores as possible even second hand as it does have the L3 cache - sometimes you can find AM2+ 920 or 940BE for below 100$ or the 550BE around 50$.

The Athlon II would be approximately 33% faster at the same clock as the older Athlon 64.

This approximate is based on a unique,
yet processor specific benchmark,
so exact results can vary in application.

Most certainly a good step better.
Also will run cooler, and clock higher.

Go for a Phenom II X4 if you can, though.
You'll be much happier with yourself, IMHO.

The Athlon II would be faster than the 4800+ in every way.

Here's a decent sampling of Athlon II 265 vs. Athlon 4800+ benchmarks, not really any for gaming but it clearly shows the performance difference. http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/34?vs=190 . Overall 50% faster for a 30% clockspeed gain. IPC is about 15-20% higher on the Athlon II. Not a big good jump over 5 years' time. I would go with a Phenom II triple core minimally, but you would definitely notice the performance difference between the 2. My experience going from a 5000+ BE OC'd to 3ghz to a 955 BE at 3.2ghz about 2 years ago was, it was a huge jump. Like 30% jump in some games, just wicked fast overall. I don't think I'd be happy with even a Phenom II dual-core at 3.5ghz.

Thanks for all the replies! *ka24e* cheers for that link.

I'll try and get my hands on a Phenom II X4 955 (95w)

If your willing to pay that much why don't you buy the phenom II x4 960T which is also a 95w processor. It can also be unlocked into an x6. This is a way better option and comes at a very small increase in price over the x4 955. So if you do go in for the 960T later in the future you don not need to upgrade to an x6 because you will already be having one. All you will have to do will be to go into the BIOS and unlock the 2 extra core. The 960T is based on the thuban which all x6 processors are based on.

Because a Phenom II X4 955 is the best CPU my motherboard supports.
