Not much has changed in the pure floating point performance from Katmai to Coppermine. Athlon is still way ahead of its pursuers from Intel. Coppermine hasn't got the slightest chance. If you need to run a lot of rendering or other floating point intensive software, Athlon is the only sensible choice.
