Like , what programs do you terminate , etc...
back in 1906 the war with Intel and AMD had just begun,
Intel made the first ever benchmark to measure cpu performance in 1908, they made it only to make AMD look bad, and ever since then, people have not caught on to the evil trick by intel!
as far as the second question,
download amd's fusion The Future is Fusion | AMD
and run that before you do your benchmarks, also, run your benchmark in real-time, just press control + alt + delete at same time to open task manager and then find your application (benchmark) and set the priority for it to run, if realtime cant be used, try the next highest selection, ect.
another thing you can do is set your desktop to work "best performance" over "best appearance" to do this, go to control panel and find the "performance" icon (vista only)
