Bloomfield Revision B0 Compared To Core 2 Extreme QX9650
Intel's new processors based on the Nehalem architecture will be announced in a few months. But the first engineering samples are already available to some users. One of them posted SuperPi, Cinebench and wPrime test results of a desktop Bloomfield Revision B0 CPU in the XtremeSystems forums. He also tried testing them in Sandra and Everest, but these applications refused to run on an unknown CPU.
The results are definitely impressive. In wPrime and Cinebench Bloomfield, operating at 2.93 GHz, performed about 50% better than Core 2 Extreme QX9650 at the same frequency. In Cinebench 10 Nehalem scored 14,184 vs. Yorkfield's 10,500. wPrime 32M and 1024M benchmarks were completed by Bloomfield in 9.218 and 288.937 seconds, respectively. While the Core needed 13 and 440 seconds.
It seems, late in autumn enthusiasts will have to consider another upgrade.
