Intel vs. AMD: Today’s generation compared

March 23rd, 2007

The Tech Report used a Linux LiveCD to benchmark the latest processors from AMD and Intel.

notfred’s Folding Benchmark CD tests the most common work unit types and estimates performance in terms of the points per day that a CPU could earn for a Folding team member. The CD itself is a bootable ISO. The CD boots into Linux, detects the system’s processors and Ethernet adapters, picks up an IP address, and downloads the latest versions of the Folding execution cores from Stanford. It then processes a sample work unit of each type.
