PCWorld says, "Though it was not the top-scoring system we've ever tested, it earned second place with a 116 mark on PC WorldBench 5, and handily beat the 95 score of the 3.2-GHz Pentium Extreme Edition 840 dual-core Intel reference system we tested previously. It also bested the average score of 107 of two previously tested 2.6-GHz Athlon 64 FX-55 systems, which use AMD's current fastest single-core CPU, as well as the 102 score of the Intel reference PC using the 3.73-GHz, 64-bit Pentium EE chip, a single-core CPU."

After 7 or 8 pages of tests, benchmarks and graphs, extremetech finally says, "What we're looking at here is a clean sweep. We can find a couple of edge cases - mostly synthetic benchmarks—where Intel's dual-core desktops outpace AMD's new Athlon 64 X2. We're more concerned with real applications, and when it comes to those, we have a hard time finding any situation where a dual-core Pentium comes out ahead of a dual-core Athlon 64. Even in most single-threaded apps, AMD takes the cake. Games are an absolute blow-out, with the Athlon 64 X2 handily outstripping even a liquid-cooled Extreme Edition dual-core Pentium overclocked by 25%. And it's not just games: The X2 beat the massively overclocked Pentium in DivX encoding and LightWave rendering, and basically tied it on the 3ds max SPEC APC test."

Btrfs For Linux 4.3 Has TRIM & RAID 5/6 Fixes

While the F2FS and EXT4 updates for Linux 4.3 weren't too meaty, there's a bit more going on in the Btrfs camp. Chris Mason sent in his Btrfs file-system updates today for the Linux 4.3 kernel merge window. Within the Btrfs updates this round is a TRIM patch to fix some corner cases, RAID 5 and RAID6 fixes, support for new blkio controllers, and various other fixes and code clean-ups.
