The benchmarks only cover 3DMark06, Cinebench R10, and WinRAR, and compare dual-, triple-, and quad-core Phenoms clocked at 2.3GHz with an Athlon 64 X2 4400+ clocked at the same speed and a 2.4GHz Core 2 Quad Q6600. Overall, the benchmarks show the dual-core Phenom providing about 66% of the performance of a triple-core CPU, while the triple-core Phenom provides about 75% of the performance of a quad-core part.
