MHz isn't always everything. AMD chips do 9 operations per cycle while current Intel chips do 6. This is why AMD chips can get away with the lower frequencies. Intel knows this (or just realized it) that is why their new CPUs will be designed to do more operations per cycle.
Wow is it my avatar that makes you gusy want to take shots at me? But like you said........ Its a rough estimate.
And as i said I have an FX-60 so i know where the performance is. If intel had the best dualcore chip out (Yonah) with supporting motherboards i would have bought they're top shelf chip.
But thats not the case.
But if you guys overclocking semprons and celerons want to act like your hardcore and what not go ahead. Well all know what we'd rather be oc'ing.
Amd fanboys could talk about how they could get an opty and overclock it to fx speeds and such. But what does that matter when the other guy has an fx overclocked?
I never did get that. He's still going to be faster.
But im really hoping intel comes back hard with conroe (i just love going for the underdog)
