Intel Conroe 2.67Ghz is 15-40% faster than AMD FX-60 2.8Ghz - Benchmarked!

@ 2006/03/07
Intel setup two identical systems: in one corner, an Athlon 64 FX-60 overclocked to 2.8GHz running on a DFI RD480 motherboard. And in the other corner, a Conroe running at 2.66GHz (1067MHz FSB) on an Intel 975X motherboard. -- Especially looking at titles like F.E.A.R. where Conroe's performance advantage averages over 40%, it looks like Intel's confidence has been well placed.

price is less interesting... the lower end E6300 (1.8Ghz) is more reasonable priced near $200
