AMD Athlon 64 FX-55 - Page 4

Prime95

Prime95 is basically a Mersenne prime number discovery program. It's a great example of Distributed Computing, but it's most loved by overclockers for its powerful system stress-testing and benchmarking abilities. It can torture-test your CPU to produce its maximum heat or spit out any errors due to excessive overclocking. Also, using the blend test, it can consume all your physical memory and run error-checking tests on your modules to ensure their quality. However, right now, we're mostly interested in it for its benchmarking capabilities.

Here are the timings for our Athlon 64 FX-55, the 3800+ and an Intel Pentium 4 2.4GHz.(less is better)

You can see the Intel processor prevails and computes the primes much faster than either of the AMD processors. Even though the FX-55 clock speed is 2.6GHz, 200MHz faster than the Intel CPU, the difference is disappointing. Knowing Athlons' disadvantage in computational benchmarks we expected at least slightly a higher speed from the FX-55.
