lets see my opinion, is that it is the same cpu basically, same speeds. But you get to use DDR2, which is alot faster then DDR

DDR2 CAN be a lot faster than DDR, but a lot of the time the difference is negligible.

Fascinating ... it proves that AMD still has advantages and supports my theory that neither AMD nor Intel can ever make BETTER processors, just that they'll be better at different things.


An AMD is a different animal than an Intel. They'll both always have advantages and disadvantages.

But DDR1's low, low latencies proved a big enough advantage to put 939 in the win in some cases.

very true but why take my chances and just go to AM2, but the way i see it right now, im going to wait on AM2 upgrade until the AM2+/AM3 gets more information, and comes onto the market.

I'm holding out on S939 as long as I can at least until The Barcelona vs. Penryn fallout has settled a clear price/performance leader.
