ScienceMark 2.0 Moldyn
This test simulates thermodynamic behavior of various materials using their forces, velocities and even positions.
ScienceMark 2.0 Primordia
This code calculates the electron quantum orbitals for any element of the periodic table. We use the default configuration.
ScienceMark 2.0 Cipher
This test is very heavy on FPU consumption and thus we have continued to use it in our new suite.
These three tests are the one area where I saw the Conroe unable to take the lead away from AMD in raw performance. The performance advantage the FX-62 is moderate, around 8% on average, but the E6700 does out perform the X2 4800+ processor, its closest price competitve part. The X6800 is able to take the top spot in the Primordia test however.
