1.6Ghz Pentium M vs. Turion 1.6Ghz (I took a USB drive with SuperPI on it to BestBuy )

The difference shouldn't be that big, the Turion gets a 1m 10s SuperPI 1M. Why would there be that big of a difference?

sry abou the late reply General, but what i mean is AMD can pwn and intel (at least a couple of months ago anyway) cpu, where as the intels would have to go really high and sometimes not be able to bench because of being unstable

Are you joking? A Core 2 Duo @ 1.83Ghz is like the X2 5000+

There is no comparison, Intel p\/\/Nz0r3z AMD.

Two months ago doesbn't matter. Since the Core Duo came out, Intel wins in Mobile, and since then win in Desktop and Server computing.

Yes, before I got this computer I had an Athlon 64 X2 3800+ @ 2.6Ghz, 2gb of OCZ "High Performance" DDR-400 on a DFI Lanparty SLI-DR w/ a 7900GT KO Superclocked, 2 x 74Gb Raptors in RAID 0.

Why?

I did like it, but I wanted faster. The Core 2 Duo totally pwnz0r3z it.

I still have it by the way, its for sale though.

Actually so is this system. They all are, check out my thread in OT.
