    Intel bashing AMD, AMD style!

    http://www.anandtech.com/tradeshows/...spx?i=2713&p=1

    AMD is the higher clocked chip this time, and it doesnt stand a chance, beaten as badly as it beat intels first 2 dual core lines!

    What about the AMD Quads? Those supposed to be any competition for all of this?

    AMD is supposedly going to have 65nm tech in six monthes.

    Havent seen any info on AMD readying a quad chip. Supposedly the first batches of AM2 sockets are just gonna be the same X2s that are out now, just made for that pin out.

    Highly overclockable!

    775 Socket, though.

    Ya and then 6 months after that for Intels home user quad core, then 6 months later for the 65m AMD, then 6 months later for...

    Its not a huge deal for gaming.

    But how are they compared to AMD's true Dual Cores? Is there any bottleneck with the 2 cores going into 1?
    It is a good price. Comments there seem scary tho with the heat being an issue. How high can they be oc'd?

    The problem, which will remain for the P3 tech Conroe chip, is the lack of hypertransport between cores. As I understand it, With AMD the cores can talk to each other within the package through the memory controller, while the Intels must talk via the FSB. This would mean that AMD should be more effective at splitting tasks. Unfortunately, I am not the best one to explain this.

    Regardless, some folks on Hardocp forums are claiming overclocks over 4 GHz on air with the 9xx series CPUs.

    At this moment AMD has the upper hand with dual core technology, but Intel fans can build some nice machines.
