Default Dual Core comparison: Wolfdale vs. Phenom X2 vs. Conroe

A German hardware magazine compared a 3 CPU types with single player benchmarks of Crysis. The E8400 which comes with 333 x 9 and 3 GHz was downclocked to 266 x 9, so it ran with the same clockspeed with the E6600 and the Phenom X4 9700 which had 2 cores disabled.

The text is in German, but the pictures speak for themselves ...



As you see Wolfdale performed the best in Crysis, and Phenom was the slowest

yucky 5-5-5-18 timings they used.
Which will affect the Phenom more than the Core 2's.

I'd like to see how Phenom's run with DDR2-1066 at 4-4-4-12

at DDR2-1066?
That'd be nice RAM to have. Probably expensive though.

You can get DDR2-1066 RAM at 4-4-4-12 timings at stock, and it isn't that expensive.

you dont think you could down clock it to say like ddr2-950/1000 or a little lower and maintain those timings?
dude oh yeah with stock timings like that it would cost a-plenty.
i cant do stock 3-3-3-9 1T on any ddr2 ram i have ever owned. but i can do it all the time just a weeee bit under stock, or with 2T CR.
