  1. Our test method is described here.
  2. All data types are reduced to one relative integer score: performance of a reviewed processor compared to performance of Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600, which is considered 100 points.
  3. Detailed results are available in this cumulative Excel spreadsheet. The article contains only summaries of each benchmark class.
  4. If detailed results are worthy of your attention, we mention them.

Note that we've removed MATLAB results. But if you're interested, you can see them here.

3D modeling and rendering

On the average, Athlon X2 7750 is not faster that its predecessor in this group of tests. However, results in various programs differ noticeably. For example, Maya renders scenes even faster. Note that even the 6000 processor outperforms E7200 here. However, the interactive score turned out to be lower. There is some progress in 3ds max, but both processors from Intel are faster in this test.


This group of tests did not favor the Agena core, so Athlon X2 6000+ is even a tad faster here, practically identically in all subtests.


On the contrary, AMD processors are much faster here. The only 6000 CPU rushes forward to catch up with the E7200. And the 7750 model outperforms its direct rival. However, the fact mentioned above apparently spoils this achievement.

Professional photo processing

The 7750 puts up praiseworthy performance here. Its performance lag has been closed down. Moreover, we didn't expect such progress from this dual-core processor in the multi-threaded test that traditionally favors Intel CPUs.

Scientific applications

When a floating-point unit gets a chance to work at full strength, AMD processors (even with the old architecture) get an advantage owing to their higher clock rates, and the K10 is simply beyond competition.

Web server

We've already witnessed practically all possible layouts of forces, when both processors from Intel took the lead, and when both CPUs from AMD were faster, and when the situation conformed with the official positioning. But we haven't seen a hard test for Athlon X2 6000+, which would make it slower than other contenders and appoint the 7750 model the leader. That's exactly what happens here.

Total professional score

On the average, Athlon X2 7750 is a tad faster than its predecessor. And both of them are at least no worse than Pentium E5200. It's nothing special, but it still confirms the market positioning of the new processor.

And now let's see how it fares in non-professional programs, a much more interesting category for budget dual-core processors, which are rarely bought for professional software.
