3DMARK2006 (800X600) BENCHMARK
Seeing 3DMark is most often used for benchmarking videocards, I wanted to set it to a low enough resolution that any sort of videocard bottleneck wouldn't be an issue. Setting the resolution low allows the processor to be the main focus of the benchmark.
The E6750 and the E6700 are technically neck and neck when it comes to their performance in this test. Some people might see this as an improvement with the 1333Mhz FSB and some might chalk it up to be identical and within the margin of error for a 3DMark 2006 benchmark. The others processors are thrown in for comparison. Either way, if you are upgrading from a Pentium 4 processor, you will definitely be seeing an increase in performance across the board.
CINEBENCH 9.5 RENDERING BENCHMARK
Cinebench is an excellent rendering benchmark to see how a processor will manage a set photo rendering task.
As seen again, there is relatively little difference between the two processors. The larger front side bus does open up a little more bandwidth for rendering, but not enough that it would validate a hardware upgrade.
PCMARK 2005 CPU BENCHMARK
PCMark 2005 is an excellent basic benchmark that tests the CPU by putting it through day to day such as file transfer, audio compression etc.
Again we are seeing a mirror image of the previous benchmarks. the E6750 is ahead, but not by much.
SUPER PI (1MEG CALCULATION)
This record-breaking program was ported to personal computer environment such as Windows NT and Windows 95 and called Super PI. In order to calculate 33.55 million digits, it takes within 3 days with Pentium 90MHz, 40MB main memory and 340MB available storage.
Again, the results are following the same trend as the rest. But if you have a Pentium 4, this graph might be food for thought.
