AMD Phenom X6 1100T and X4 840 tested

by on08 February 2011




The results with the Phenom II X4 840 are not directly comparable because for our new test rig we upgraded the power-supply to a more efficient one with 80plus Gold certification, which resulted in 1-2% better results for this CPU.


With a little less VCore on default, it does help the CPU to achieve a better performance per Watt also due to the higher clock. Not all CPUs/chipsets have onboard graphics, so the i5-750 runs with our good old HD 4850.



With four or six cores active Cinebench shows us the efficiency of the whole system. Of course without a graphics-card efficiency is better:


Naturally the more you overclock with voltage increase the worse the efficiency will be.
