One, that's not a Pentium. Two, it's not dual core.

Regardless, I compared it to a REAL Pentium D...

...and the X2 is MUCH faster.

(Granted, I picked the slowest P-D).

i hope you realise celeron D processors are not dual core. now there is no contest between the X2 3800 especially for gaming. p-rating wise an x2 3800 has 2x3200+ cores which in theory would line it up with the 3.2GHz Pentium D. in practice though the X2 series are more efficient in operation than a Pentium D and still have the same gaming advantages that the AMD64 single cores have over their comparable Intel brethren.
