For overall system performance we use PCMark Vantage. This is run in both x86 and x64 mode to give the best indication of performance.

The Phenom II X6 does ok here in x86 testing. However, it still cannot outperform even the $200 Core i5 750 during the x64 run.

For synthetic gaming tests we used the industry standard and overlockers bragging tool 3DMark Vantage. This is a test that strives to mimic the impact modern games have on a system. Futuremark went a long way to change from the early days of graphics driven tests to a broader approach including physics, AI and more advanced graphics simulations.

3DMark Vantage uses the DX10 API in addition to having support for PhysX. As we are no longer using an NVIDIA GPU for testing (at least until we can get a GTX 4xx card) you will only see the CPU based PhysX results in the scores. For testing we use the Performance test run.

Ok, so the X6 runs rings around the Core i5 750 at stock speeds. However, considering the OC headroom that the i5 750 has, that advantage is quickly overcome with a little bump in the BLCK. Interestingly, the X6 out performs the Core i5 750 when overclocked, even though the x6 is at a slower speed.

Cinebench is a synthetic rendering tool developed by Maxon. Maxon is the same company that developed Cinema4D, another industry leading 3D Animation application. Cinebench R11.5 tests your systems ability to render across a single and multiple CPU cores. It also tests your systems ability to process OpenGL information.

Wow, here the AMD X6 kicks it into high gear. At stock speeds it out runs both the Core i5 750 and the Xeon X3470, while when overclocked it is only second to the Core i7 980X.
