My PhII X4 955 got almost exactly one point higher than that at less than 4500. Can't remember the specifics but that's approximate.
This is definitely much more like it, compared to the earlier benchmarks, but still not very appealing.
For the people like us with the 4-module CPUs, definitely not, but it does look like a pretty substantial improvement on a core-for-core basis.Phenom II X2 555 @ 3.9 apparently gets a 2.24 in CB11.5,
so theoretically, if clocks scaled linearly in Cinebench and we had a golden-plated Callisto Phenom II that could reach 4.5, it would get a score of about 2.6.
Comparing processors with the same number of floating point units would be fair in Cinebench, wouldn't it? This is a serious, non-rhetorical question. If something's wrong with my reasoning, please let me know, seriously. Edited by PiOfPie - 1/13/14 at 2:00pm
