    AMD Might not be the best for gaming

    Interesting review

    http://www.xbitlabs.com/articles/cpu...doom3-cpu.html

    If your looking for value per buck then i think AMD is the way to go. It would be interesting to see how the San Diego Chip gets on against the P4?

    Cheers all

    @ darrensen. Most benchmarks show A64's to be better than similarly priced P4's for games (with the possible exception on the pentium-m). Doesn't mean that that P4's are bad, just not quite as good. Can't go wrong with either TBH.

    Don't seem to be many SD/venice reviews around for some reason...

    xbitlabs have been rather more reserved on the A64 ever since its launch.
    their benchmarks show small gaps [if any] between the performance of a p4 againts an a64 while reviews on the rest of the web shows significant performance advantages for the a64 in most cases.

    nvening, the p4 does beat the a64...

    Thats not wat the monkeys told me!
    Nothings gunna beat A64 in gaming untill mabe unreal3 which will use dual core and dual cpus, so there may be differences.

    AMD motherboards have a completely different bus architecture hence why it's better in some aspects. AMD aren't just "better" they can do certain tasks a lot more efficiently than others

    Its not up to date, there isn't a benchmark for the FX-55, which is the top AMD gaming cpu anyway...

    After reading the whole article I think they are clutching at straws re: P4 being quicker. Really.

    lol nvening..turning into an AMD fanboy there

    The different CPU architechtures mean that one will always be better than the other for certain tasks. P4s are better for video editing/rendering - while current A64's tend to perform better in a wide range of games - although this could easily be down to the motherboard chipset and components..

    Either way the difference in both aspects (gameing and video stuff) is so small that it doesnt really matter, unless your a benchmark phreak
