Intel Previews Clarkdale Processor Performance NumbersThu, Sep 24, 2009 - 7:00 PM
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 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!
