Benchmarks

System setup

Below is a complete set of AMD Turion 64 X2 TL-50 and TL-60 (rev. G2) benchmarks from our CPU benchmark database. Both microprocessors were tested on IEI Technology KINO-690S1-R11 motherboard with 2GB Kingston PC2-6400 SODIMM KHX6400S2LLK2/2G memory, and Integrated ATI Radeon X1250 graphics.

All tests were performed at default frequency and voltage, using manufacturer's stock fan/heatsink. None of the components were overclocked. Motherboard BIOS options were left at default settings.

The results of all benchmarks are broken into four categories: multi-threaded, single-threaded, memory intensive and graphics / gaming.


Turion 64 X2 TL-50 vs TL-60 (rev. G2) single-threaded benchmarks

Single-threaded benchmarks run on a single CPU core, and do not depend on such features as the number of cores, or Hyper-Threading technology. Additionally, they do not utilize on-chip caches, dedicated to other cores.

Turion 64 X2 TL-50 vs TL-60 (rev. G2) graphics benchmarks

Graphics benchmarks depend on the type of integrated or discrete graphics adapter, and to less extent on the processor performance. Because these benchmarks are synthetic, they may not truly represent gaming performance. However, they still can be used to estimate whether one processor will perform faster or slower than another CPU in games and other 3D tasks.
