I recently ran some benchmarks using the Custom PC (UK Mag) Benchmark Suite 2007.
It runs a comparison of image editing / video encoding / multitasking, and gives you a benchmark score. http://video.pcpro.co.uk/custompc/CPCSuite2007.zip
I ran it on my year old Samsung X460 notebook (Core2Duo 2.26GHz / 4GB RAM / Win7 Ultimate 64bit) and then ran it on my "Webb Station" in different states of tune:
(results are average over 4 runs)
Phenom 965, 3.4GHz, RAM@1333MHz 7/7/7/20: 1257
Phenom 965, 3.4GHz, RAM@1333MHz 8/8/8/24: 1293
Phenom 965, 3.4GHz, RAM@1333MHz 9/9/9/24: 1277
Phenom 965, 3.4GHz, RAM@1600MHz 8/8/8/24: 1280
Phenom 965, 3.4GHz, RAM@1333MHz 8/8/8/24, NB@2400MHz: 1279
Phenom 965, 3.6GHz, RAM@1600MHz 8/8/8/24, NB@2400MHz: 1354
Phenom 965, 3.625MHz, FSB@250, RAM@1332.5MHz 7/7/7/20, NB@2500MHz: 1315
Phenom 965, 3.625MHz, FSB@250, RAM@1665MHz 8/8/8/24, NB@2500MHz: 1328
So it's nearly twice as fast in usual day to day kind of work, although there isn't THAT MUCH difference in my overclocking results. Its very time consuming too, the test takes between 15-20mins each run, and they reccomend you do 4 runs and take the average.
I haven't tried any 3d benchmarks recently, but am sure this will blow the notebook even further into the weeds!Edited by gcwebbyuk - 12/27/09 at 2:56pm
