COMMENT "When properly supported Dual Core can deliver an impressive performance increase over Single Core as shown in this Nuclearus Multi Core benchmark. Overall AMD Athlon64 X2 4200 outperformed AMD Athlon64 3500 by an impressive 29%. The ALU and FPU results only show a small 1% to 5% advantage for AMD Athlon64 X2 4200 but the Multi-Thread benchmark shows how impressive Dual Core is when AMD Athlon64 X2 4200 outperforms AMD Athlon64 3500 by a very impressive 37%!"

AMD ATHLON64 X2 4200 MANCHESTER AMD ATHLON64 3500 VENICE

COMMENT "Realstorm 2004 is another benchmark which doesn't seem to use Dual Core which means AMD Athlon64 X2 4200 and AMD Athlon64 3500 both perform within 1% of each other."
