    Cool HEXUS.reviews :: WORLD EXCLUSIVE! INTEL CONROE BENCHMARKED

    HEXUS.reviews :: WORLD EXCLUSIVE! Intel's Conroe spanks AMD FX-62's botty - for real

    HEXUS has managed to run a complete set of benchmarks for two speed grades of Intel Conroe CPUs in our HEXUS labs - guaranteed free of bias - and we've
    compared their performance to the Presler Extreme Edition 965 and, uniquely, to today's baby from AMD, its Athlon 64 FX-62.
    nuff said? oh, you actually want to know the numbers?... well after doing so, presumably you want to let us know your thoughts here in the HEXUS.community

    Competition is wonderful. Hopefully AMD will now have more incentive to make progress and/or start going back the the lower prices they had a few years ago. Not to mention Intel should have some great chips. It'll be interesting to see if Merom is relitivly as great as Conroe.

    ...but what about pricing ? That is absolutely key for nearly all of us.
    However, I can't fail to be astounded by those benchy results They are some of the most significant 'wins' I've seen in a long while.

    Wow,

    It's going to be tough to pull myself away from AMD. But with results like that, looks like i'll be heading back to Intel.

    With regards to price......who knows. I wouldn't like to put a figure on that.

    Any more info on these boards? if they're going support SLi and they're out soon then I'm completely sold and I'll wait until Conroe arrives before upgrading.

    TBH, I wasn't expecting great numbers from AM2, and I'm not surprised that Conroe's got a performance advantage. All AM2's done is move the same core design over to DDR2, and DDR2 hasn't been a performance booster for any platform. I'm glad that Intel have come back strongly - I think they were getting too comfortable with the idea of competing on market dominance rather than performance. That said, I'd expect AMD to come back at least as strongly, but probably later this year.

    I'd be really suprised if the SFF Athlon X2 and 64 turn out to be superclockers..

    35W TDP... has alot of potential if u ask me..Throw in a DFI baord, 11x multi for the 3500+... Could be the next super-Venice..
