|When the Core Duo is used in a desktop environment (something which Intel is now marketing as a fully supported scenario), we see performance levels right about on par with the fastest AMD Athlon64 X2 processors. In the majority of cases however, AMDâ€™s top of the line FX-60 processor does take the performance cake. However, the FX-60 processor is also quite a bit more expensive compared to the top of the line Intel Core Duo T2600 ($1100 vs. $750), and also consumes about twice as much power under heavy load. While the FX-60 may be a faster performer, we would go as far as to say that the Core Duo is a more attractive processor as a whole compared to the FX-60.|
