AMD's tri-core beauty managed to pull another first place lead over these Intel quad-core processors and quad-core processors with Hyper-Threading. Oddly, the Core i5 750 exhibited better performance than both the Core i7 920 and Core i7 870 in this test, which is an area we will be exploring more over the coming days.

With the SQL performance out of the way, we next benchmarked the Apache web server. The static web page serving performance between the AMD Phenom II X3 and Core i7 900 series processor was close while the Core i7 870 came in third followed by the Core i5 750.

AMD's triple-core processor really lagged behind the Intel processors when it came to the ray-tracing performance with C-Ray. The best performance was found with the 2.93GHz Core i7 870 followed by the Core i7 920 and then the Core i5 750. Nearly all of these Intel processors were twice as fast as the AMD Phenom II for its ray-tracing performance.
