Exclamation AM2 4200+ vs E6300 Core Duo

Well, well, well............I built two systems: Both motherboards are new Gigabyte S series with the same basic layouts (obvioulsy, the Northbridge chipsets are unique to each CPU manufacurer), dual 36 gig Western digitial raptors in RAID 0, Sound Blaster Audigy2 Z, 2 gigs of Corsair DDR2 800 EMS memory, Plextor DVD RW, Floppy, BFG 7950GT and Antec 500 WATT Samrtpower 2.0 PSU's; These systems were run at stock speeds and then oc's by 15% using the on-board Oc'd tweek program which auto adjusts all cpu, memory and PCI bridge voltages and frequencies. Here are the results:

Stock E6300: PcMark05 5816
3DMark05 9180
Stock AM@ 4200+: Pcmark05 5882
3dMark05 9205

Oc'd E6300: PcMark05 6110
3DMark05 9915
Oc's AM2 4200+: PcMark05 6106
3DMark05 9970

The one tell tale difference is that the E6300 never got above 38 degrees C. The AM2 ran Oc's at 49 Degree C.

Verdict = if you are buying an similarly priced low cost CPU's from either intel or AMD you will not be unhappy. They are both very close to being the same in performance.

Noli Nothis Permittere Te Terere!!
EVGA 680i, Dual EVGA 8800GT'S (650/950), 4 gigs OCZ DDR2 1066, Intel Q9450 at 3.8 Ghz, Koolance Water Cooled, Dual Plextor16x DL DVD+/-RW. Dual WD 250gb 16mb Cache Sata 3.0. 3DMark06 score = 19,168.

i think to have a real verdict you would need more then just a 3d mark score.
