Benchmarks: EVEREST Ultimate
The memory bandwidth performance of the Core 2 Duo E7200 is quite good, producing a similar read result to that of the Q6600, with a much better write result thanks to the higher operating frequency. The E7200 showed stronger write performance when compared to the Phenom processors, while its read performance was not quite as impressive.
This next EVEREST Ultimate test measures the processors performance, and because it is a synthetic test the Phenom X3 processors have the advantage of utilizing an additional core. That being the case, the Intel Core 2 Duo E7200 was again the slowest processor tested.
