Today we have three major platforms on the bench. First we have the K8/10 setup using the Dragon platform. While Phenom II isn't designed to directly compete with the Core i7, we thought it was a good idea to throw in the results for reference. However, the Core 2 Extreme that it's designed to take on is included and we have given you a full lust of results here today. So without any further delays, off we go.

Phenom II seems to be lacking any real CPU power, even when compared to the Core 2 series and is certainly much less than Core i7. It seems that the extra cache isn't helping AMD much here. Memory performance is good since the on die memory controller remains intact.
