What Intel chip corresponds to this AMD cip? Tags: CPUs Chip AMD Intel Last response: December 14, 2009 8:52 PM in CPUs Share mohit_kakkar December 14, 2009 7:07:40 PM Hi, My friend wants a system based on: I wan to build a system for my friend based on the AMD Athlon II X2 240 Regor 2.8GHz 2 x 1MB L2 Cache Socket AM3 65W Dual Core. What Intel chip does this AMD correspond to? Or I might say "compete" with? More about : intel chip corresponds amd cip Anonymous a b à CPUs December 14, 2009 7:25:40 PM i dont know which one would win in benchmarks, but in specs, these two are almost identical. Intel Pentium E6300 Wolfdale 2.8GHz 2MB L2 Cache LGA 775 65W Dual-Core Processor AMD Athlon II X2 240 Regor 2.8GHz 2 x 1MB L2 Cache Socket AM3 65W Dual-Core Processor so i would say the pentium 6300 is about its competitor. HVDynamo December 14, 2009 7:33:46 PM In a fight between those two chips the Intel is likely to win due to a more efficient architecture, so they can't really be compared clock for clock.

What do you mean by removing the synthetics as the start? jennyh a b à CPUs December 14, 2009 7:51:15 PM The 5 Sysmark 2007 tests at the start are 'synthetic' ie not real application performance. Although based on a variety of windows tasks, it isn't a real application. jennyh a b à CPUs December 14, 2009 7:55:31 PM Not to flog a dead horse or anything but if you look at the 3d score on that link you might expect the intel to win all of the game fps benchmarks and not lose all of them. Stuff like this is why conspiracy theories exist btw. The intel doesn't win any of the real gaming benchmarks yet wins in the synthetic 3d performance....... xaira a b à CPUs December 14, 2009 8:48:03 PM e52oo jennyh a b à CPUs December 14, 2009 8:52:21 PM The athlon 2 beats the e5200 in something like 23/31 benchmarks.
