Dual-core is a big win, nearly doubling the score on AMD at the same CPU frequency. 666 is the fastest score from a single CPU we've yet seen here, Opteron and Xeon included. Much the same is seen with Kribibench. Dual-core is a large win, offering almost 2x the speed of a single-core chip at the same frequency, and the 955XE is faster than FX-60 in this particular test.
