<A HREF="http://www.gamepc.com/labs/view_content.asp?id=a64x2&pa..." target="_new"> clicky to read all about it </A>

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.

More about : intel amd dual core

They look like AMD fanbois, but it's a good review if you don't read the comments and just compare the data.

LOL you could be right. Personaly the title makes me think it might be a shot at THG.
Maybe the answer is somewhere in the middle.

"Still, if you’re looking for a true budget dual-core solution, Intel’s Pentium-D reaches price points the X2 cannot touch at this time. Rumors have abounded that AMD will release a lower clocked X2 model to address these needs, but we have not seen any concrete evidence of such a processor yet.

Sorry Intel, you’ve been beat once again. "

Aren't those kind of contradictions? "The Pentium D may be slower, but it's significantly cheaper. Obviously, the Intel chip sucks."

A Mercedes CLK-GTR is faster and wayyyy more expensive than a Toyota Camry. Sorry Toyota, you're losing.

Intel knows their chips don't compete performance wise and has priced them as such. Is anyone else kind of tired of this display?

I dont see the price/performance advantage to an Intel setup. Either you are going to drop a bunch of doe for radical cooling, extra aircond, and hydro, or you will have to buy a new mobo every 3 weeks.
Having said that, if Intel holds the price line when they go 65 nanos, and FD SOI, they will have a winner.
I'm also going to toss in my standard bitch. If they had used a northwood type core, on 90 nanos, we would probably be cheering them now.

If they had used dual-dothans, with EM64T, I would probably get one. Bud sadly enough, intel doesn't seem to realise that their salvation is right in front of their noses. Quite a shame, actually.
