More comparisons, this time from Anand...

FB Dimm's probably killed it for the Intel systems (Not too badly)... wonder if they should step away from them?

Anyways, AMD still is strong in the server market... nothing really new...

What's funny about this review is the following. While everybody said that AMD would gain the performances advantagwe with bigger load, it look quite the opposite here. Woodcrest system seems to get better with bigger load, which in theory should load the FSB.

Still no home-run for Intel, but they keep their lead, altough by a slim margin. With the K8L coming in 2007 and NEHALEM in 2008, it looks like interesting times lay ahead of us... :D

FB-DIMM is a pain in the ass. I can't wait for Intel to leave that platform.
