PCWorld Compares Dual-Core Processors
Posted by: duke on: 07/13/2005 02:16 PM [ Print | 3 comment(s) ]
PCWorld has posted a duel of dual-core processors. Which will be victorious, AMD or Intel?
The AMD machine was the second-fastest we've ever tested, with a 116 mark on WorldBench 5, easily surpassing the 95 posted by the 3.2-GHz dual-core Pentium Extreme Edition 840 reference system that we looked at earlier.You can check out the results for yourself over here.

Not a surprise really. I expected as much.
Eventhough the AMD X2 is more expensive, by the time you factor in a new motherboard for the Intel Pentium-D, which is more expensive then?
An X2 on an ethusiast's board like the DFI Lanparty will stomp anything Intel has now or on the drawing boards.
Intel needs to quit kicking that P4 dead horse and start working with the Pentium-M more.

Not very surpricing. The 4800+ Equals roughly a 3800+ per core. and to compare that with a 3.2Ghz dualcore isn't realy fair.
AMD started with releasing the top end, Intel started low end.. on the other hand, what more can P4 be then Lowend when it refuces to pass the 4GHz mark, and if it did would generate e general meltdown. I agree, dump the friggin P4 allready. P-M dualcore sounds way way more sexy to me.
