Icon17 AMD Launches AM2 - Benchmarks Numbers from all over the web

Today AM2 is launched by AMD, in fact, it has been ready for launch for quite some time now, some shops had early sample shipment of final silicon 10 days ago already. We here at Madshrimps will try our best to keep our readers up to date with the benchmarks and articles on this new platform and share the links and snippets in this running discussion thread.

Our favorite hardcore hardware site HARDOCP has their first try with the AM2 platform and they compared it to S939 in their review, this is their personal advice on the AM2 platform, if you already have S939 DDR1:

Quote:
I personally am going to wait it out a bit with my 4800+ and 2GB of DDR-400. I will build another system this year but I am not sure whether it will be Blue or Green. I do know for sure that if I am building an AMD system here next month, I would very much embrace AMD and DDR2 and move forward with their AM2 processor inside.
if you hunger from more benchmarks, please check out these (come back for updates!):

nuttin'interesting! I will as stated before not upgrade a cpu until the fx53 breaks or hell freezes over (and when that happens (hell freeézing over) it will run at 4 ghz anyway)
as long as there's gpu upgrades to be had, who in their right mind of gamers/internet users needs more cpupower??

amazing how those benchmarks difference from site to site...

the hexus comparison with conroe is so way off.... real bulshit and again a bad system setup for amd.

The conroe will beat the fx for sure, no doubt about that.
for sure in all the benchmark programs, real gaming is much less.

conroe june/july lets see when you all have one.... i bet september the earliest

AMD does have one last trick up its sleeve before the end of the year, and you will hear about it in June. It's not K8L and it's not going to affect the majority of people, but it is an interesting stop gap solution for the high end in 2006...
what could it be?
