Can anybody tell me what is the counter part of AMD Athlon II X2 to Intel processors? And what are the differences of Athlon II X2 to Athlon X2? And last..what happened to AMD Turion? does it still existing? Thanks....

More about : amd counterpart intel

pentium e5xxx would be comparable and still beat it comfortably

An E6850 or E8300 would be a much fairer comparison as those are around the same age unlike the i3 which is much more recent.

and your wallet.

The difference between Athlon X2 and Athlon II X2 is all the Athlon II X2s are based on the newer K10 architecture and made on the 45nm process, while only the Athlon X2 7XXXs were K10, but 65nm while all the others are K8 parts. (The 45nm 5000+ is an exception, but it is a fairly low volume chip and can be considered as "special".)

Turions still exists in its old place as the mainstream mobile processors. AMD simply added an Athlon line to supplement the lower-end and Phenoms for the higher-end.

For TWICE the price, I would hope so.

lol a c2d will smithreen it probably a e6700 and usually ppl compare it like is there a counterpart of this intel in amd not V.V

On a price to performance table, there is no Intel counterpart compared to any processor from the AMD line up..

exactly what we said at that cost we get processors form both intel and amd but when we look at the ratio cost: perfomance intel always wins hand down

To answer your question correctly, there is no direct Intel counterpart to the AMD Athlon II X2. From a performance standpoint it would be the 32nm dual-core Pentium G6950, but the Pentium is priced at a level equal to the Athlon II *Propus* quad-cores and well beyond the cost of the Athlon II Rana triple-cores.

The next closest comparison would be Core 2 Duo processors - from a price standpoint the most close comparison would be the e4xxx series which the Athlon II beats handily. From a performance standpoint the C2D e7xxx series generally slugs it out equally but at 2x the price.

The differences of Athlon II X2 to Athlon X2 are significant. The X2s were manufactured at 90nm & 65nm as compared to the A-IIs at 45nm. The A-IIs are based upon the K10 *Stars* cores and include both DDR2 & DDR3 memory capability.

The AMD Turion has evolved as the Athlons above. The *Champlain* and *Caspian* T-IIs are based upon the 45nm K10 'Stars' cores and generally range from 25-35w.

Read OP's post carefully he asked which intel cpu is comparable to Athlon II.He didnot ask which intel cpu is similar to athlon II at the same price.

Yes, i3 is way to good to be compared to an outdated athlon II.And Intel c2d 6xxx is a more realistic comparism.


In other words, you didn't read the OP carefully, and being an Intel Fanboy, jumped in immediately and derailed the thread with your *False Choice* i3 fallacy instead of any logical comparison.

And then you start backing up and accusing folks of not reading the OP carefully. Typical of you.

i am not sure why but intel's lower clocked cores always beat amd's much higher clocked cores do any of you know why? im really curious

then why in the world do people go in for amd when people know intel will beat it

then why is ati preferred over nvidea is it only becoz of the cost or is it sumthin else

Basically there is no counterpart on the price : performance table but people alwas look at price unless they are insanely rich so @ amd athalon X2 cpu we have Intels e6xxx series which is also much much better than athalon ... and im not sure about turion and the diffrence between the athalon and athalon II is diffrent architecture higher clock speeds ..... if i were you i would stick with intel

That would be incorrect.

The A-IIs beat all CD2 e6XXXs --- and trades blows with the e6850 (1333 FSB), with the A-IIs winning in most apps because of updated SSE instructions.

The A-IIs also out-perform the e7XXX series in applications and gaming while losing in synthetics (with the A-IIs costing 40-50% less).
