Multi-Core Support: As well as SMP
(multi-processor) and SMT (multi-threading/Hyper-Threading) support we
have added multi-core support for future AMD and Intel CPUs. The
benchmarks have been optimised to schedule the optimum number of
threads on the optimum (virtual) CPU on both multi-core and
Taking a look at the CPU multi-media benchmark results we see that
the Intel 955/965 and Intel 840 processors take the lead on this one.
The AMD FX-60 is not too far behind though.
In terms of memory bandwidth the Intel processors love the 1066MHz

scored the same on the memory bandwidth testing. This means our
test bench is producing solid numbers and was shocking when we made the
