That doesn't suprise me at all. When I first got my old machine the AMD processors only went up to 1.3 GHZ and were killing Intel's P4 @ 2.4GHZ. I couldn't belive that a CPU that runs at lower speed could outperform such a (supposedly) advanced CPU. Can anyone give some insight into why there is such a dramatic change?
this was kinda my situation. my first real computer was an AMD 1200 128 mb 40 gig. I got a brand new pent 4 2.24 80gig 512 for a steal ($350) about 4 years ago. it was faster of course. I made the amd my wife's comp.
one day I got my hand on a 256 mb stick, so I put it in the amd. wow...
the computer saw a tenfold increase in everything. it was now faster than the intel. it shocked the ****e out of me, because everything I've heard up to that point was a LIE
. you knowthe sayings that intel are better than the amd's, plus you would think that a 1200 was half as good as a 2.24
it burn my cd's faster, my games stop getting stuck. I converted files quicker. It didn't handle some video files well (the intel excelled at this), but it was better in everything else . I ebventually put a 512 stick in it and sold it to my cousin as I had built me an amd 2600 by then
I tell another secret. read pcworld. every time they run tests on the latest processors AMD always beat the intel's
