yeah, that's been said lots of times.

but then again, quad cores are around the next corner, as well as AMD's rebuttal (K8L)
I've been trying to follow AMD's developments on K8L, and it looks like they're doing a lot.

Hello militarymind,

The processor depends on what you're looking for.

If you're looking for more battery life than performance, go for the AMD Turion.

If you want really high performance with less battery life, go for the Core 2 Duo.

Any data to back this up?


I would go for the Core 2 duo hands down.

The Turion was a big disapointment.

the benchmarks say otherwise.

no, they don't match C2D in performance; but they're pretty competitive to Pentium M's in both performance and power consumption.

CPU alone != better performance.

what speed P4 was it? and what are all the other circumstances? for example, other hardware, how many and what programs are running, how fragmented the hard drive is, the temperatures of the hardware, etc etc...

This argument will go on until the end of time. Everyone is a fanboy of one. I'm a AMD guy. 1st comp I ever owned had a K6-2 350 in it. Never failed me so I just stuck with them.
