""we have to stress that Opteron performs slower than the top Athlon XP models""

""We have already pointed out more than once that high-speed ALU is required to ensure high-speed MP3 encoding. That is why Pentium 4 with its powerful Hyper-Threading technology wins this test. Opteron working at a not very high core clock frequency of only 1.8GHz, even falls behind the fastest Athlon XP processors.""

""we can conclude that Opteron based systems do not cope very well with data encoding tasks, especially against a colorful background of more successful competitors.""

""Opteron falls behind Athlon XP in all tests, and in every two tests out of three it also falls behind the top Pentium 4 processor model.""

Not as PEACHY for <font color=green>AMD</font color=green>UMMIES as they would have you believe huh?

**ROFL**

That's some crazy sh__. Now popegoldx has an evil clone!

Wait ... if popegoldx is the evil, then does that make his clone a good clone or an eviler clone?

:\

Now I'm all confused.

Or yo momma!

All the things I really like to do are either illegal, immoral, or fattening.

Does that come with or without the big red nose? :) 

Maybe we should start a poll:
1) Good Clone
2) Eviler Clone
3) Clown Clone
4) Yo Mamma
