I was wondering if the price differential equates to a quantum increase in perfomance. Assuming, of course that the tweaked Athlon64 is genuinely quicker than the garden variety tweaked P4-C.

shant,

I think the main difference is evident in the benchmarks .. i think there were some over at anand and at various german sites. Ill post the links if i find them.

This shows the differences .. reasonable .. but not "quantum"

Maximum PC mag also did an article in their November issue. If I am not mistaken the benchies that they ran were based on the FX51, 64 & P4 EE chips(?) - FX51 came out on top with winning most of the benchies - mainly in gaming.
