Pentium D eh?

Anyway, that's awesome. I find it hard to believe the 2.4ghz will be only $300...

Has anybody heard of the reverse hyperthreading that AMD is supposedly countering the conroe with? It's supposed to process a single thread over multiple cores to complete massive tasks quicker. Either they go, we all win.

not sure if this is a credible source but it sounds like it. Conroe is officially the Core 2 Duo and Core 2 Extreme if this is good.

As much as people will disagree with me..

Intel will *probably* take the spotlight and AMD is watching the show from behind the curtain.




IMO, the Willamette and Northwood generation of P4's were better than AMD XP's... And the AMD Athlon 64's were better than the willamette, northwood, and prescott generation. Just like a seesaw, intel is bouncing back.This is just like ATI and nvidia...

The 5xxx series was a complete hunk of garbage, and the 9xxx series blew nvidia out of the water, but now Nvidia rules, but they are starting to lose ground with ATI's new cards.


Now remember, this is my OPINION.
I give you permission to light a cyber bag of poop on my cyber doorstep if you please.

Or you could get one uber PC, one sempron and a new server for TF's Major.

I disagree about the Willamete. it is not a very good chip at all.

AMD's Athlon's kinda gave the Pentium 3 a run for its money, that's why Intel made the Pentium 4. but it wasn't actually better at first.

in fact, the Pentium 3's were beating them at first.
1.2GHZ Pentium 3 > 1.6GHZ Pentium 4 Willamette

so for a while, Intel made sales purely because of advertising. people were just like "ooh, Pentium 4" basically.
when the Northwood's came out, the Pentium 4 then edged out what AMD had, and not by a whole lot. the only thing Intel made which gave them much of an advantage was HyperThreading.
