  1. Please see <A HREF="http://forumz.tomshardware.com/hardware/modules.php?name=Forums&file=viewtopic&p=186764#186764" target="_new"> this </A> thread should help.

    If I glanced at a spilt box of tooth picks on the floor, could I tell you how many are in the pile. Not a chance, But then again I don't have to buy my underware at Kmart.
  2. 1600 FSB?
    I dont think so. Both chips have 200. Intel quadpump theirs. Amd is double.

  3. 1600 FSB basicly tells you it's 800MHz up and 800MHz down at the same time.
    Athlon 64 is 4x200 unlike Athlon XP.

  4. This is very vague, what will you be using it for?

    AMD 64 3400+
    MSI K8N Neo Platinum
    1 GB Kingston HyperX PC3200
    ATI AIW 9600XT
    WD Raptor 74GB
  5. In most apps, the Athlon 64 3000+ will be faster than the P4. In video/audio encoding the A64 will be a bit slower (but not in all apps).

    Indeed, in ALL the rest the A64 will be faster, in games the difference is huge !


    Toms Hardware Site is a joke !
    Looks like intel spent more on bribing reviewers to cover up it aint that great than they did in R&D, you know what im talking about Tom !
