I have just come across a very well written article comparing mobile processors, both Intel Pentium-M (Dothan) and AMD Turion64. I know, there are tons of articles comparing the two, but I found this selected review is comparing as scientifically fair as possible. In other words, the review picked laptops with the specifications as close as possible and running benchmarks more than once to produce reliable results, not like some other reviews comparing totally different laptop setups (like this one).
Of course, there are limitations of the review (which doesn’t?), such as running most of the benchmarking off the AC plug. This is because running off AC plug and off the battery would possibly results in difference on performance of the laptop.
Furthermore, you will definitely be surprised of some benchmarking results like file compression, multimedia and battery life. After reading through the review, I can’t agree more with some of the conclusions made.
After 21 benchmarks, 2 comparisons, and a detailed architecture analysis, the conclusion is clear. Unless battery life while performing CPU-intensive tasks is paramount, choosing a Turion-based laptop over a Dothan-based laptop is recommended.
The reason that these benchmarks contradict many others is simple: they base their benchmarks in a desktop setting, while this article bases its benchmarks in a laptop setting.
Here is the list of chapters of the review :-
- Intel Dothan
- AMD Turion
- Price: The Hidden Factor
- Setup Preparation
- Setup Method
- Synthetic Benchmark Performance
- Office and Business Performance
- Multimedia Performance
- Gaming Performance
- Scientific Operation Performance
- Battery Life
While the review gives you a better insight of both mobile processors, the comments given by the readers at the end of the review provide added values to the review. So, don’t forget to read the comments as well.
Hope you enjoy the article. :)
