Well, since the 2.8GHz FX62 > the 2.6GHz 5000+
And the Conroe 2.67GHz > 2.8GHz FX62
I'd say the Conroe 2.67GHz > the 2.6GHz 5000+
Since the Conroe's best is going to be a 2.93GHz Extreme Edition, I doub't it will even touch it.
And I just did a google search for "AMD 5800+" and came up with exactly 3 search results, only one in english and it was just a reply on a message board that went a little like this :
yeah, quad cores probably wont be to useful for awhile until all apps have multi thread support. but i still just drool over the multitasking, i could run a dedicated server, compress video, play a game, download pr0n, bid on ebay, watch 24 all at once on my:
AMD 5800 x4 @ 10ghz
SLI GeFace 1800GTXZ
10000000rpm 1000000TB Seagate HD
All joking aside, I'm willing to guess that if there really will be a 5800+ its going to be a quad core, and AMD has already said their desktop quad cores wont be out until 2008, well after Intel's quad cores.
