The software has build-in several tests for memory and CPU/FPU.
AMD processors are well known to have superb memory performance, since the memory controller is embedded in the processor. The test results are very good for AMD X2 5600+, it almost reached 9MB/sec. That performance should give the 5600+ a good boost for future real life application tests.
At the CPU/FPU tests, we noticed two strange things. First of all at the CPU AES and CPU Zlib tests, the 5600+ came first, while at CPU Queen came second overpassing even the Intel E6300. Again at the FPU tests we can see some good performance from the 5600+.
