So after my AMD system got destroyed by a PSU failure, I replaced it with the sig Intel parts. I just got my 9600GT in the mail today, and before I replace my 7900GT I figured I'd run a benchmark to see how the E2180 at 2.0GHz compared to my old X2 4200+. The results made me a little sad, see for yourself:
4022 - X2 4200+ at 2.20GHz, memory at 733MHz 4-4-4-12
4882 - E2180 at 2.00GHz, memory at 800MHz 4-4-4-12
5066 - X2 4200+ at 2.73GHz, memory at 1092MHz 5-5-5-15
I knew Intel had the edge, but damn. The E2180 at 2.0GHz almost matched my 4200+ at 2.7GHz, and probably would have tied the 4200+ at 2.6GHz. Hopefully the new Phenoms will be on par with Intel...
On the bright side, I'm very pumped to get this 9600GT going and overclock this rig
Bah! Out with the old. I want to see 10k+.
Though I guess I can sympathize with you. I still miss my Athlon64 3000+. That chip was a heck of an overclocker. Times change, chips change, but it's the overclocking that keeps it fun.
