I guess thats what happens when you have a Forum where Gamers are the majority and people that actually know about Computer Hardware are the minority.
Ok Nitestick, go anywhere out of Tech Forums, anywhere that isn't overflowing with 16 year old fools, anywhere that there are adults, and you'll be put in your place as far as Conroe goes. I'm not going to argue with you because I think you have no idea what you're talking about, and you're a AMD fanboy beyond repair. Thats that.
Here are a few facts;
1.) AMD isn't coming out with anything new. Magic CPUs don't pop up out of nowhere. We know about new CPUs a year before they come out. In the case of K8L, we know about it a year and a half before its coming out. Conroe will dominate until K8L (when who knows what will happen). I suggest you take your own advice and don't speculate on K8L's performance.
2.) Conroe is destroy the Athlon 64s. If you don't believe that, you're either extremely ignorant of the hardware world around you, or you just don't want to believe it, haha. Conroe isn't going to get any worse.
3.) AM2 isn't getting any better. Its too late in the game for that. Conroe still has a good 2-3 months before it comes out, but they're in no hurry. AM2 on the other hand, has less than 3 weeks before it comes out, and the last benchmarks 2 weeks ago showed miserable performance. AMD Athlon 64s don't benefit from the higher bandwidth provided by DDR2 memory. They might as well be moving to DDR2 because it looks more "advanced" to the layman when compared to DDR.
