In the EVEREST memory benchmarks, the P55 platform featuring our Intel DP55KG has a clear lead. In some cases it even approaches twice the bandwidth of the P45 and 790FX platforms. Keep in mind that this is with each system running the same DDR3 modules at 1066 7-7-7-20 JEDEC specs.
Moving on to the EVEREST integer tests, the results are somewhat more mixed. While the P45/Q9450 system consistently comes in third place, the P55 and 790FX systems are very comparable. The X4 955 even manages to pull ahead in the AES benchmark.
The floating point tests swing the favor back toward the P55 platform, although the P45/Q9450 system puts up a decent fight in the single-precision Julia benchmark. The Mandel test is close as well when it comes to the AMD platform, but the margin widens as we progress to the extended precision Sin Julia test.
