AMD uses the 90nm architecture and Intell uses 65nm which means it will run cooler. Plus you can overclock the piss out of the Intell.

I overclocked my AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+ from 2.0GHz(2.01 on Windows) to 2.6GHz  and the processor never reached 1.4V and the temperature never went over  104*F(40*C). Used  Sandra 2007 Benchmark  and it beat all the P4 and Core Duo Processors by at least 100 points

:cool2:

i got 4200+ @ 2.6ghz and im happy with it. sure faster is better but there's a point where you bearly notice it. if you play games and have good graphic card just turn everything all the way up and you won't notice much difference.

sandra uses synthetic benchmarks so the processor with the fastest cpu clock will always win. synthetic benchmarks are very unrealistic. you need to do a real world benchmark, and a core 2 will stomp any amd. even with AMD's quad FX it they still dont beat a intel

Anyone seen the new AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+    I have    but the starting price is an arm and a leg.  Who thinks the Single/Dual-Core  FX/ FX2 processors  should drop in price?

they already are droping, but you can go spend $186 on a core 2 duo E6300 and over clock it a bit and its still faster.

But what is sweet  is that AMD have a Quad-Core Out  :lol:

Windsor (90 nm SOI) - Quad FX platform

Dual-core, dual CPUs (four cores total)

CPU-Stepping: F3

L1-Cache: 64 + 64 KiB (Data + Instructions), per core

L2-Cache: 1024 KiB fullspeed, per core

MMX, Extended 3DNow!, SSE, SSE2, SSE3, AMD64, Cool'n'Quiet, NX Bit, AMD Virtualization

Socket F (1207 FX), 2000 MHz HyperTransport (HT2000)

VCore: 1.35 V - 1.40 V

Power Consumption (TDP): 125 Watt max per CPU

First Release: November 30, 2006

Clockrate: 2600MHz (FX-70), 2800MHz (FX-72), 3000MHz (FX-74)

Manufacturing Tech 90 nm

Price: $525

The problem about this 1 is   125 Watt Power Consumption    and  Socket AM3 processors will be available  by Christmas  and it can fit in any Motherboard with AM2  but the biggest part  is    full support for the newest line of DDR3 Memory by Christmas or New Years

you know you have to buy 2 of those to get 4 processors right? so your at $1050 for just processors then you have to get a duel processor motherboard and we all know how much those are

Actually, AMD doesn't have a true quad core processor on the market yet. Their "quad core" solution is to put 2 dual core processors on one motherboard.

See this article:

My new Rig:

AMD Dual Core Athlon 64X2  4600+

Asus M2N-E Socket AM2.  Auto OC on load.

nVIDIA nForce 570 SLI, AMD Hammer

2048 MB (DDR2-667 DDR2 SDRAM)

NVIDIA GeForce 7600 GS  (256 MB) Dual Head

PS 550W Antec TRUEPOWER TRIO Quiet PS.

So far I LOVE it.  I have only had one Intel and it ran

very hot.  I have Everest by Lavalys that tracks it and

tells everything on my PC.

I don't Game, but if I start then I'm ready.  :grin2: :grin2:

Are you finding your fingers are having hard time to keep up to your thoughts as mine are?  :icon_pale:

This is very true, all you do is set it to the side and buy new,  no need to fix.  :wink:

The old one quit on me so I am shipping it back to

Sys Tech in Calif. to be repaired under extended

warranty.  It was only 18mos. old.  I will; probably

keep it for a backup unless one of my Kids talk

me out of it.   :haha: :haha:

granpa:  I have no problem with my mind staying with

my 2 finger typing.  I'm a little too jumpy for regular

typing.   :smile2: :smile2:
