Can't understand this
2 Computers computer A) with Intel Q9400 2.66 GHz gives WEI cpu of 7.4 )not bad for a "slightly" hobbled QUAD -. The "Hobbling" is the 6MB L2 Cache which makes it slightly cheaper than 12MB Cache which the Q9450 (I think that was the model) had. This machine has 8GB RAM installed.
b) Computer B with 16GB RAM installed and a "Beefier" CPU (not that computer A is any slouch) INTEL I7-920 processor 2.66GHZ 8MB Cache) only gives WEI of 7.0
Can't understand this but the "Significantly" cheaper processor (Q9400) seems according to Windows yield a better performance.
This HAS to be B/S
Similar DDR2 Memory etc.
Could be Mobo differences but a CPU test is a CPU test -- should be executing CPU instructions "Natively".
If this test is highly dependent on the MOBO then it's a total waste of time and confusing to say the least.
Any "Techie insider" have an idea as to EXACTLY what is being tested here.
Thanks in advanced from a very confused
