Default Intel Pentium G6950 vs AMD Phenom II X4 555 BE

It is obviously a bummer that the Pentium G6950 died before we could run any overclocked game tests on it, but this is absolutely something you'll see in the follow-up. In the meantime, marvel at how the Pentium G6950 struggles in a number of these benchmarks.


The Phenom II X2 555 is very easy for enthusiasts to work with. Its stock speed is fast enough to provide great performance (for a dual-core CPU), its price is easy to stomach, and its unlocked clock multiplier makes overclocking a simpler affair for enthusiasts.

At stock speeds, the Phenom II X2 555 is clearly superior to Intel's Pentium G6950 in games, and it wins out in a majority of applications we test. It even comes close to the Core i5-750 in graphics-bound games, as high resolutions transfer the performance burden onto today's fastest GPUs. The only downside is that its stock clock rate is already so high as to limit overclockers to less margin than Intel's 45nm and 32nm CPUs. But 4 GHz is nothing to complain about for AMD's 45nm process, and employing cheap air cooling.
