According to this article (click the link in the article to see results) the AMD 6000+ beats out both the Q6600 & E6600??? this frightens & confuses me.

it also says that SC2 will only use two cores at a time. The core2quad is just a hair bit faster than the core2duo because it can use the extra 2 cores for random other processes in the background, but SC2 obviously likes the AMD chip a bit more.

o.O

Don't worry jon, my buddy is on beta right now maxed out and I'm pretty sure he's on a weaker intel than you... I'll find out and let ya know.

That is very interesting though.

Gah I want my key! 'They're' working on a crack for the beta release. :)  I can't post any info here about it though.

i'm not worried about the Q6600, it can hold its own when properly overclocked, i'm more worried about the 6000+ beating it out, the 6000+ is ok, but certainly not better than a Q6600, even at stock speed. There is just something weird about a 6000+ beating a Q6600 in ANY game. that is what is causing the confusion.

Yeah. I've always been a little iffy with fudzilla, I guess we'll see. I'm sure a lot of hardware sites will test this out, as weird as it is.

Interesting, I guess we underestimated the ipc of the old athlon duals I guess... fallout 3 tends to like amd more anyways no?

When the X2 6000 came out it was competitive with the E6600, why is everyone so shocked? Conroe didn't have that large of a performance gap over Windsor.

Interesting that SC2 only uses 2 cores, than again it is Blizzard, they like to make games that will run on almost anything.
