The opty's are put through longer harder tests than the a64's thats how they are stable in harsh server environments

The 4400 has a 11x multi which can be lowered to 10 if needed

In a Typical desktop environment an Opty will not be anymore stable than an X2. Not noticeably anyway.

true, but when OCing is hard on the CPU, somthing Optys are unstapable with, a 1.8 can easly hit 3+ghz with the voltage at 1.5

I merely suggested he was a fanboy because since he was willing to go intel in the first place, budget was obviously not an issue.
post #36 of 38
No offence but the term ''Fanboy'' is starting to be used in an immature fasion. Im not accusing anyone but stop using it as an excuse to start a flame war.

The Opty's can be overclocked well ill give them that. But what you seem to do w=seems to fall inline with an X2 however the decision is yours mate.

having 'upgraded' from an Athlon 64 3500+ (single core )

to a new Pentium D Presler dual-core 3.4ghz, I was expecting the system to fly

however, it is SLOWER on any single application, I expected that to be about the same speed , as Athlon was rated at 3500, and Intel is 3400mhz.

the system loads in data noticably slower, there is definately a lag to doing everything, that wasnt there with the Amd

the Intel IS better, at multi tasking, as I expected, BUT remember, that all this talk of multi tasking, no one seems to mention, that data being read of the hard disk, can only be read so fast

IE hard drives dont read any faster, so thats the bottle neck

most of the time when I multi task, I open up a browser, copy and paste some text, or photos, open up word, or psp, etc etc I open up what I need at the time

THIS IS NO FASTER with the dual core system

sure, once the apps are loaded, than the system does run smoother in multi tasking, but its smoother and slower per individual app......

the one area where I notice an improvement, is on video encoding, seems about 50% faster than the AMD, so a big plus in this area.........

my point is really, if you have an existing AMD 64 system, and fancy more power, get a x2 64 chip...............thats what I wish I had done now.............

went through a lot of hassle changing board etc, for a system that boots slower, runs slower, but multi tasks faster ( once apps are loaded in )

I went for the Intel, due to great spec of the chip and price was good

the x2 amd was more expensive, but I think it would have been the better choice by far

just thought anyone with AMD 64 should know !!

Single core Cpu's Stream single core apps better than Dual cores.
