Conroe? what is that one of those "engama-neered" concrete canoes???

haha. I actually have little faith in conroe. Intel always pushes their products out the door like a red-headed stepchild. And besides all the benchmarks were taken at like 600x800 res. When the heat gets turned up AMD puts the conroe where it belongs, or atleast not 60% ahead of AMD!

600x800 resolution is better when you are benchmarking the cpu not the whole system. It doesn't get a low fps from a crappy video card. If the fps is low, then it's obvious it is the processor.

Please read this article at Tomshardware.com http://www.tomshardware.com/2006/06/...nroe_vs_fx-62/

The 60% increase was actually only 40% and Intel said that. However, it was meant to mean 40% increase over their current processors. Nothing about AMD.

You compleeeetely missed my point antrax and wtk. I was pointing out that the conroe only kicked amd arse when the gaming was light. When things got rough, the conroe couldn't juggle as well as it had in the lower end gaming.

http://www.hexus.net/content/item.php?item=5692&page=3

Look at the bottom. Under 16x12 and full AA and such...It's put INTEL in its place!

WHY GET HOPPED UP ABOUT LOW-END BENCHES YOU WON'T EVEN PLAY AT???
10x7? WTF IS THAT?

DC and SLI show similar...(yet opposite) triats of perf yields. When the gaming is light, DC helps a LOT. When the gaming is heavy (AA AF HIGH RES) SLI helps a lot.
