No... that's Merom and Conroe... Presler is Intel's attempt to snatch back some of the performance-orienated market but shrinking the process down to 65nm (allowing for higher clock speeds), adding another meg of cache, and bumping the FSB. It's still two Prescotts, or a Smithfield, it's just smaller and slightly faster. Conroe is actually the chip I'm waiting for, but before I trade my loyalty again, I'll wait and see what AMD has planned to counter it (nothing new from what I've heard so far though).

Whether you like this chip or not, It is a sweet chip to make up from the 8 series. When things really excel in gaming on this machine is when games like UT2007 start using DUAL CORE Engines in 2007...then u'll see this...and probbolly even the 8 series start to fly and take off like a jet.

I guess if that helps you sleep at night. All I'm saying is this chip isn't bringing anything new to the table except smaller transistors, and that isn't going to make it much faster, if at all. And if you guys are counting on 4.7GHz or higher overclocks to be common, I'm afriad you'll be really disappointed when these chips are released.

Yeah, seriously. Presler is nothing more than a 65nm version of the Pentium D.
post #25 of 35
yiffy, at ur post #21, I was talking about the merom + conroe

and there's a game demo on fileplanet, called robohordes, more of a tech demo, in the Unreal 3.0 engine (that's UT2007).

Try and run it on ur opteron, I dare ya

It requries Hyper Threading, not sure if a dual core CPU will run it, or if it speaks for all games in the Unreal 3.0 engine, but u can't run it on an A64, that's for sure, it even says it in the description lol. X2 might, but I dunno if it's HT it needs, or just 2 cores.

that intel is gonna lead the pack

OR proof that Intel spends a lot on marketing.

intel may have a chance but the price tag on this processor is whats going to crash it

no actualyl $250 for a dual core 920 isnt bad


the EE yes but no body will buy the EE I would rather get a x2 4800+ over a EE

Yes,as the man pointed out, speed of this chip will greatly go up and it will fly in games once 2007 rolls around and games start to use dual core.

You guys are making it sound as if AMD doesn't have dual core chips of their own... and they have more coming. It's still Netburst, which means it's still slow, inefficient, and hot.
