The ScienceMark test results show a consistent performance advantage favoring the 45nm processors. This time the E8400 was 6% faster in the Primordia test when compared to the E6850 while it was 12% faster in the Molecular Dynamics test. The 45nm processors were still superior performers in the ScienceMark STREAM and BLAS/FLOPs tests though the performance margins were not as great.
