Default New AM2 tests from Anandtech

man this makes me think how much more AMD has to do to beat intel's new stuff.

Im dissapointed, i expected more than this from AMD

it seems like s939 is still the better way to go, youu get pretty much the same performance, unless you comparing it ro DDR2-800 which dosent give you much more performance, and it;s cheaper.

Yea, 20% increase compareing DDR 400 to DDR2 800 isnt the best in the world. And the fact that DDR 533 is just as good as DDR 400 sucks.

ill be waiting for a good while until I upgrade to AM2. And if it comes out and flops, ill hve no problem grabing a FX 60 to hold me over until the next socket. then again im not too sure what AMD plans to release for 939 in the future.

Seems that we were speaking the truth. AMD has lost this time and it's Intels time to shine.
