  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.

Professional tests

3D modeling and rendering

We knew from the very beginning that Pentium E2220 couldn't compete with E5200 (from their specs). The new core has never performed worse than the old one in any of our tests, and the E5200 has a higher clock rate and a larger cache. From the technical point of view, the most interesting comparison is Pentium E5200 versus Core 2 Duo E4700 (top processor from the Core 2 Duo E4xxx series): the E5200 has a newer core, and the E4700 is faster by 100 MHz. No miracles here -- Core 2 Duo E4700 wins this contest. E7200 is predictably the fastest processor here, but we were not surprised.


Pentium E5200 leaves the previous top model of its series way behind again, but it fails to catch up with the top Core 2 Duo E4xxx processor.


Here it's the same. Moreover, this repeats throughout the entire review. For the only exception of the following chart.

Professional photo processing

That the first and only time when the new core demonstrates its advantages: Pentium E5200 outperforms Core 2 Duo E4700 by almost 4%, even though the latter has a higher clock rate. It goes without saying, we checked what test provided this victory. The situation is quite interesting: the E5200 is even defeated in some tests (there is nothing surprising about it -- clock rate), but its victory is provided by a serious advantage of the E5200 in Size test.

Scientific applications

Standard behavior.

Web server

Same here.

Total professional score

As we expected, the only victory in Photoshop hasn't affected the total score in professional applications: the new Pentium E5200 fares in between the old Core 2 Duo E4600 and E4700. Strictly according to their clock rates: 2.4 GHz -- 2.5 GHz -- 2.6 GHz.
