The test results show that both the Phenom 9500 and 9600 were disappointments. Graphics performance in PCMark05 was poor, although it was OK in 3DMark Vantage, and the frame rate in Crysis was very low, crawling along at 14-15f/s. This was something of a surprise and we jumped back and forth between B2 and B3 CPUs a few times and the results were consistent.
