AMD Phenom X4 9950BE

3. Test configuration

We tested the AMD Phenom X4 9950 on a Gigabyte GA-MA790GP-DS4H motherboard with the latest available BIOS (F2A) installed and of course DDR2 memory. In the performance graphs we have included the results of some Intel processors, which were also tested under the same components, except the memory. But for real life this should be a direct comparison between AMD vs Intel CPU proposals.

  • CPU Cooler: Scythe Mugen (x2 120mm fan)
  • Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-MA-790GP-DS4H BIOS F2A)
  • Memory: 2x1GB OCZ PC2-8500 SLI (1067MHz @ 5-5-5-15-2T @ 2.30V)
  • VGA: MSI 7600GT Silent with latest Nvidia drivers installed
  • HDD: WD 80GB SATAI (primary)
  • HDD: WD 80GB SATAI (secondary)
  • Operating system: Windows XP SP2 with all latest updates installed
  • Operating system: Windows VISTA 32bit SP1 with all latest updates installed

We also used the following benchmark software under both Windows XP and Vista platforms:

- Office/Benchmarks (WinXP)

  • Sisoft Sandra 2008 SP2
  • Everest Lavasys Ultimated Edition v4.50
  • SuperPI Mod v1.5XS
  • wPrime v1.55 (stable)
  • Cinebench vR10
