    Exactly how much better is the FX51 over the standard Athlon64?

    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 want to learn more and more to see as beautiful what is necessary in things; then I shall be one of those who make things beautiful. Amor fati: let that be my love henceforth! I do not want to wage war against what is ugly. I do not want to accuse; I do not even want to accuse those who accuse. Looking away shall be my only negation. And all in all and on the whole: some day I wish to be only a Yes-sayer.

    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.
