  • Why is C2D 6300 Integer Math so low

    After running multiple test with AV and Firewall off I still cannot get my CPU Integer Math any higher then 269.7. I have nothing going on in the background (no email etc.)
    Is there maybe a limitation with Intel C2D 6300? It is running at 3003 stable so I thought I should be able to get a little higher result. All the other CPU benchmarks seems "normal" but integer math sticks out.
    Any ideas? I'm concerned that I'm missing some setting in BIOS or some such.

    My guess is that you are comparing results from different versions of PerformanceTest.

    You are using the old release, V6.

    You should also be careful comparing 32bit and 64bit results. The 64bit machines score a bit higher on the CPU tests.

    So you should upgrade to the newer V7 release.

    You can't really directly compare V6 and V7 results.
