There's still a lot of fights left in the Core 2 architecture, specifically the Q9xxx series. Don't underestimate it Wink

OK but the CPU score varies a lot. GPU score was fine because of both of them having same Graphics Card.

"OK but the CPU score varies a lot."

Tell me something I don't know.

"GPU score was fine because of both of them having Good Graphics Card."

Did you even bother reading or comprehended the data? All of the CPUs have the same exact GPU, that's how people make a fair benchmark tests! Did you expected the Q9650 to have to lower end GPU while the 2500k have the higher end GPU? Rolleyes

Well what did you expect with benchmarks using synthetic tests and PC games? CPU power has minimal impact, try doing the same test with PCSX2 and see the difference Tongue

I expected exactly that result Wink
A quad is basically a nice to have even in modern games.
Most of the extra speed comes from the more advanced architecture.

Shows that Intel's choice of staying at 4 cores for the foreseeable future was good
for the enthusiast / upper mainstream market.

Sure, FFX? I'm sure almost everyone that use pcsx2 have that game. I don't mind doing a benchmark for it.

it seems amd had scared intel a bit with athlons in time. so they decided to put a loooong range cpus on lga775 and did their best. that's why core 2 architecture remains and has a great role.
