The Benchmark Numbers
The presentation continues by showing off performance numbers of an Intel Clarkdale Processor 3.33GHz with 4MB of cache versus an Intel Core 2 Duo E8500 and Intel Core 2 Quad processor Q9400. The Clarkdale dual-core processor is significantly faster than some of Intel's previous offerings that are quad-core!
The Intel Clarkdale processor and the Ibex Peak platform excel on 3DMark vantage and only lose out to the Intel Core 2 Quad Processor Q9400 in the CPU test.
The integrated memory controller in Clarkdale performs well in the example above showing Clarkdale running dual-channel DDR3 1333MHz memory versus the other Core 2 processors running dual-channel DDR2 800MHz memory.
The last benchmark that Intel showed off was PCMark Vantage and once again the performance advantages of Clarkdale are obvious as the overall score was 30-40% higher than what was seen on the other two platforms. Intel looks to have a high-performing part on their hands with the 32nm Westmere processor series and we can't wait to see Arrandale and Clarkdale processors hit the street later this year!
