Today we are pitting Core 2 Duo against the AMD Phenom X3 8750 based processor. These two processors are aimed at the same market share. While the E8750 is clocked at 2.4GHz, we clocked the processor up to 2.5GHz by changing the multiplier to allow for a clock for clock comparison of the two different processors.

Despite the FSB increase of the E7200, AMD's Phenom with its own CPU memory controller wins out here, hands down. AMDs key strength has been its memory performance, and the K8 / K10 family continues this.
