You Cannot Stop the Peloton from Driving Forward - Conroe and AM2

@ 2006/03/15
Does that mean that AMD’s next generation won’t keep up? Let’s look at it this way; Intel is currently behind on many fronts – not solely related to performance. They are behind in platform, power, thermals, and performance. They have a lot of ground to make up; this is why Conroe will be such an impressive piece of kit as it repositions Intel to a point where they have fixed all of their previous issues and now all we have to do is hope they follow through. At the moment I find it impossible to get any Core Duo parts, so I don't know what to expect down the road - let's hope they get the process right.

you discovered that almost 2 years ago too http://www.madshrimps.be/gotoartik.php?articID=231

CPU for gaming.. anything above 2ghz for AMD - above 3ghz for Intel is FAST ENOUGH

20% increase in fear.. at 1024x768 without AA/AF on a Crossfire X1900XTX setup... duh.
