AMD Processor Performance Evaluation Guide
Source: Advanced Micro Devices (AMD)
This white paper is intended for use by those, particularly in the hardware review community, who are interested in evaluating AMD64 performance, as demonstrated by the AMD Athlon 64 and AMD Athlon 64 FX processors. Optimal benchmarking of AMD's processors does not require detailed knowledge of processor or system architecture. However, knowledge of the benefits of AMD64 processor-based systems will help enable benchmarks to show the different ways of how this processor performs relative to its competition.
