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.
We also used the following benchmark software under both Windows XP and Vista platforms:
- Office/Benchmarks (WinXP)
- Gaming/Benchmarks (VISTA 32bit)
