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!

Well [-peep-]! What happened to Anandtech's little "Prescott clock scaling" revelation? :frown:

Until now, I thought Prescott would start to flex its extra muscle at around 4GHz. I guess not though...

Perhaps we now we will see why Tejas has been pushed forward.

Well the EE has a very apparent reason for its leadership, while the Northwood and Prescott switch back and forth.

Wait till they launch Scotty with the new DO stepping.

Haven't you checked out this review yet? It's quite old though.

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.

I don't understand why they used the memory at 5:4 mode (just to get good timings?). To get 4200 MHZ with a multiplier of 16 you can take DDR533 and run it at 1:1 mode. 16 x 266 = 4256.

The Holly Grail of Intel fans - the Intel P4 Extreme Edtion with the extra L3 Cache, comes in 3.2 and 3.4GHZ. You probably can't afford it as it costs about 1000$ a piece.

very flame-ish comment, but its nice to see the big cheese have to stumble and regain footing once in a while

not that i like one over the other
