I tought Prescott would KICK the butt of northwood at 4.2GHz, but not! I was a little disappointed. I would have liked to see the FX-51 or FX-53 cooled with the same system. I wish they will test it in a near future.
We will see in computer stores within a year Prescott at 4+ GHz and we wil not see Northwood at that frequency!
Btw, we can deffinetely expect faster performance from the FX-57 (2.8GHz) when it will be introduced, since it will be on S939, 90nm, using a new core stepping, faster hypertransport, and non-ECC DDR memory modules. So, if these two articles are any indication about what we can expect by the end of this year, then AMD seems to be in a very good position, if they manage to ramp up 90nm production without any problems of course.
