Phenom 3GHz won?t hit 30K in 3Dmark06

Written by Fuad Abazovic

Not even on dry ice


Our sources close to AMD have confirmed that Phenom 3GHz cannot even come close to 30000 in 3Dmark06,
even on dry ice and heavy overclock. The same sources confirmed that no matter how AMD would like this to be true that such expectation about Phenom 3GHz would be too much.

If Phenom that fast, this would mean that clock to clock AMD is twice as fast as Intel’s quad core at the same clock speed and that is simply impossible.

With highest overclocking you will get to 26.800, trust me that is quite a lot, and Kingpin overclocked a Core 2 Duo to 5251 GHz and used two Geforce 8800 Ultras to get there.

In our Viennese lab we’ve two Geforce 8800 Ultras overclocked to 655 MHz each and Core 2 Duo extreme X6800 at 2.93 GHz will score 13500 and that is the fastest score we’ve seen. Quad core at 3GHz and FSB 1333 is maybe a few hundred faster but that’s it.    

The original story is here and at the end you can believe what you want to believe but you have been warned.
