Recently announced a CPU Athlon X2 7850 Black Edition replaces the successful Athlon X2 7750 Black Edition. Recall that the novelty is based on Quad-crystal and has two active nucleus. Operating frequency is equal to 2, 8 GHz, while the Athlon X2 BE 7750, it was just below 100 MHz. The amount of cache memory the third level is 2 Mb, because it is so much and had a first core Phenom. Used design Socket AM2, that unlike Socket AM3, allows the bus HyperTransport 3. 0 runs at 3600 MHz. Price $ 69 new items that, if there is a free factor makes this processor a good choice. Thanks to the work of our colleagues from the resource HARDSPELL.com, we will learn of what Athlon X2 7850 Black Edition in comparison with Intel Pentium Dual-Core E5300. With a price of $ 86, this model operates at a frequency of 2, 6 GHz and has a volume of L2 cache 2 MB. So, by the Athlon X2 7850 Black Edition will be a higher operating frequency, and at $ 17 below the price. Can he take advantage of these benefits ? The test stand is as follows. Let`s start with the synthetics. In the testing PCMARK Vantage performance Athlon X2 7850 at 5% higher than the Pentium Dual-Core E5300. In a multithreaded benchmarks Wprime 1. 63 a little more pulling out the processor Pentium Dual-Core E5300. When encoding video processor Athlon X2 7850 beats the Pentium Dual-Core E5300 with an obvious advantage. The model of the AMD deals with the problem 11% faster. As in the case of Wprime, CPU Pentium Dual-Core E5300 is faster than Athlon X2 7850 in the multi-testing CineBench R10. And now for some game applications. Crysis FarCry 2 H. A. W. X The level of performance of two competitors in today`s games is similar. In some applications more quickly is a product of Intel, in other products from AMD. In any case, against the background of CPU Pentium Dual-Core E5300 model Athlon X2 7850 looks very good. The choice as always for the buyer.
