The Core i5-3570K Ivy Bridge processor is one of Intel's best performers to date. In terms of real world performance this processor offers far more than most users are likely to ever need. Scoring 2012 points on the PassMark Single Thread benchmark, the 3570K is within a few percent of the fastest processors currently available and at 77 watts TDP it's no energy hog either. The server orientated GeekBench and PassMark scores of 13920 and 7144 put the 3570K at just over the 50% marker in terms of total processing capacity compared to the other processors in the group test. For server based workloads more performance is available from the Core i7 range of processors but for typical consumer use this processor is already far more powerful than it needs to be. [May '13 CPUPro]

The AMD Phenom II X6 1055T was the second in a long line of X6's, each successive revision received a small clock speed boost. The 1055T was clocked at 2.8 GHz base and 3.3 GHz turbo. The 1100T was the fastest X6 and has a base/turbo clock of 3.3/3.7 GHz. Comparing the 1055T and 1100T shows that the two processors have a very similar performance profile, both excelling at multi-core workloads and both showing relative weakness in single, and dual-core workloads. In todays market the bar has been raised several notches especially for single and dual core workloads but the 1055T still puts in a relatively strong multi-core performance which is roughly on a par with an Ivy Bridge i5-3570K[Mar '14 CPUPro]
