AMD: SYSmark 2014 favors Intel processors




AMD criticizes the SYSmark 2014 benchmark suite, because results of Intel processors considerably more favorable than would extract of AMD chips. 8 PCMark from Futuremark gives AMD as a reliable and objective indicator of performance.

In a ‘truth or myth’ video put John Hampton of AMD’s client computing division and technician Tony Salinas de SYSmark 2014 results of two “similar laptops’ apart, one with an Intel Core i5 and with an AMD FX APU. The laptop with Intel chip score at 987 points, while the AMD laptop only gets 659 points. According to Hampton, this is not a realistic representation of the real difference.

To show that they run PCMark 8 Work Accelerated. In this benchmark suite, the AMD laptop is admittedly too slowly, but here the difference is seven percent. AMD medwerkers also have turned their own Microsoft Office test, the Core i5 laptop in 61 seconds and the AMD FX laptop went through in 64 seconds. According to Hampton, it is important that consumers should rely on reliable, unbiased and transparent benchmarks, which he makes a reference to the sjoemelsoftware which Volkswagen used to lower from dropping exhaust emissions.

Hampton also refers to a statement from the US Federal Trade Commission, which Intel summoned known to make tests like SYSmark and MobileMark can be optimized for Intel processors. AMD has therefore been critical of the BAPCo SYSmark organization behind and got in 2011 from the consortium. BAPCo reports PCWorld in response that the benchmark used by thousands of customers and that the organization is focused on applications which consumers use every day.

It puts AMD in particular SYSmark especially evaluates the CPU performance and leaves out the graphics capabilities. Hence the company’s PCMark Suite 8 in accelerated mode tightening, which also puts the GPU in completing the work of the tests. AMD stressed for years with his Heterogeneous System Architecture which workloads can be efficiently distributed across both the CPU and the GPU processor. For a time AMD had powerful integrated GPUs in their chips, but Intel has since regained ground with video chips from his Core processors
