    Too little too late, I just upgraded so if Intel want my business again they need to be still ahead in a couple of years time. Just bought my first AMD chip ever - Opteron 165

    Even better than the M. Its like a more refined dual core M @ a much higher FSB.

    Conroe will rule. That isn't even with their Extreme Edition which will likely be 3.33GHz, 333FSB unlike the one tested which has a 267FSB.

    Hmmm and if it runs on low power without much heat, hell my next PC is ready ;)

    40% less power consumption than the current 955XE CPU does according to Intel's slideshow.

    If these is true maybe my next PC will be Intel-based again

    Now the only thing remaining to see about AMD is their newer AM2 based sollutions
    but i still think Intel with Conroe will be in general the winner in what is about performance\heat these time



    Also Intel is planning to release QUAD CORE sollutions in early 2007
    i wonder what AMD is planning at that time ?

    Too many new generation proccessors are coming

    Anyway it's nice to see Intel coming back with some really good sollutions these time :)

    I did

    I'm very pleased at the results. It's wonderful to see Intel strike back with such promising results. I posted the original article in the "Submit News", but it hasn't moved from there yet. Oh well. 2H of 2006 looks nice for Intel. Like I've said, if they keep the target power consumption and thermal output (sprinkle a little bit of adequate pricing) Intel will do wonderfully. :)

    AMD Socket AM2? It already fell my interest radar. :)

    Intel supplied demos...ah I'll reserve my judgement. However, if Intel sticks with one socket, and prices these new cores well....

    Maybe a bit overblown, but good none the less. I am very anxious to see what AMD has to offer, I think it's safe to bet they won't take this lying down. Those numbers are great though, and I wouldn't mind owning one, if the price is right. It's nice to see true innovation and progress in the field of CPU's again, especially from intel. They needed it, and the consumer's needed it. I can honestly say, I didn't expect my next system to be an intel one, but if this is any indication, I will be very happy if it goes that way.

    Did they break down the code for the demos? No...I'm not saying there is foul play here. I just prefer benching /w third party software.

    The Fear demo wasnt made by intel, pretty much everything else was. They arent as sneaky as Nvidia, so id say its fairplay. :lol:

    Hmm still it's Intel doing the system setup. I'm sorry but I just find it hard to believe. If it was DH or even Anandtech with a system built from scratch I would not question the results. I've just learned over the years not to believe the hype until it can be proven by other than some one not making money off it.

    If there were "optimizations" being used, I hope Intel shares them with the public. :lol: I'm optimistic about this new processor. I honestly believed that Intel needed to go with the onboard memory controller to bridge the gap between themselves and AMD. I was sorely wrong! :) (I still want them to incorporate one though, but only if they can stick to 1 socket unlike AMD...)

    BTW, Hexus.net has some similar benches as well.

    Also keep in mind AMD will have somthing to counter, not to mention the X2 is faster
    in some of those tests. Look at the encodeing tests..... Also socket M2 will Bring DDR2
    support wich will in the end mean gains for AMD. Intels already useing DDR2.

    Good to see intel finally improveing though, AMD is been the premuim processor
    preferd by most gamers since like k6/2 and the 1st slot thunderbirds.

    If you guys are looking for anything to poke at intels got a meant to be played
    optuized for intel CPUs thing going on. :D

    I'm going to be skeptical untill the reviews come out.... I'd be looking at the price $$$
    and the power and heat...
