COMMENT "Raytracing should show a good performance difference between Single Core and Dual Core. However it seems that CPU Bench 2003 doesn't make good use of Dual Core because the results are still fairly close together. However AMD Athlon64 X2 4200 still manages to outperform AMD Athlon64 3500 by 2.2% to 2.5%."
