Professional: CineBench 2003 and KribiBench 1.1
Going from the single core 3700+ to the dual core 4400+ shows nearly a cut in the render time of the CineBench benchmark by half. The four threads of the Intel 840 XE are able to keep it on top, but not much: only two seconds. If we’d had the 4800+ processor running here, surely it would have been the overall winner.
KribiBench is another multithreaded application benchmark and the X2 4400+ takes full advantage of it, besting the FX-55 processor by 68%.
