that some of the amd processors are faster than the older p4 chips,
there is a new p4 chipset which has an 800 mhz fsb compared to the amds fastest fsb of 400mhz, these are real numbers, not just opinions, that alone is enought to make the p4 run much, much faster than an amd
the new p4 chipsets also utilize 400mhz ddr ram, which is currently the fastest ddr on the market, the amds utilize the older, once again slower 333 mhz ddr, so if youre talking about pure speed, the p4 is faster, you cannot argue with numbers
Also the whole FSB being double the performance is almost as lame as someone thinking a P4 2.2ghz performs better than a Barton 3000+ which is 2.17ghz
ahh, but we are not talking an increase in processor speed of only 30 mhz, which is only a 2% increase, no we are talking about an fsb increase of 200% and no, the computer is not TWICE as fast, the fsb is TWICE as fast, now who looks like an idiot? pretty hard to argue with numbers huh?
