The thing that I still don't understand is how Intel can get Conroe to do 12 ops/cycle and still use the traditional fsb. Even though it's clocked a bit higher, wouldn't you expect the same bottlenecks to occur? I mean it's dual core (maybe double core?) and it's doing a lot more per cycle. There's no way that the fsb can keep up with the cores. What's the point of having two cores that is capable of doing a great deal but not feeding it properly? This is where I think AMD's archectiture shines with Hypertransport. Also, once AMD moves to 65nm, it'll make it that much harder for Intel to compete with AMD.

That's funny how they're going to produce a chip that'll do twice the number of ops/cycle than the P4s. Seems like the new race is to increase the number of ops/cycle which then leads a decrease in ghz. Kinda funny because Intel was shooting for the fastest ghz at first and now shooting for was slower ghz.
