I also checked tomshardware's The Phenom vs. Athlon Core Shootout

Thanks JSanguancheu for the link!



Code:
"Phenom does and will continue to outperform the Athlon 64 X2"
"Phenom delivers better performance across almost all the benchmarks."
looks promising eh! change that improves :D

Never tried it though! If I could just buy some of them, I'll test it myself :D
I believe it didn't met your expectations, but disappointed HOW?

no no i nvr actually tried it but read many reviews and forums that i searched up in google.i haven't been following it lately since intel is the best right now and i'm building a extreme gaming rig.
i'm waiting for the phenom agena FX. the phenom is suppose to be revolutionary in design because all four cores are on one die, but the core 2 quad is 2x dual cores but it works really good.
i just read that article and it also says its not that great. i have been a long time AMD user but for my next build ijust have to go with intel.
