Here's what my P4 Killer does without overclocking. Not bad, it beats a P4 2.66 with a 512 cache. My XP2200+ has a 256 cache.

if amd xp 1.6ghz vs p4 1.6ghz amd will fry intel cuz amd ues some new technolgy called quantispeed or some kinda crap. i read the story and amd said mhz cannot be the principle of calculating speeds and that xp 2000+ is eqivelent to a p4 2.0ghz go to www.amd.com and read the story :D

Well to post my .02 on this... Let me give you a little background...first puter was an northstar system (ever heard of them???).. then upgraded to a 8086 after that... So ive been around awhile and seen pretty much all of it coming...

My biggest problems i ever run into seems kinda childish after reading everything you all are posting... But here it goes...

1. Every other year it seems intel puts out a new chip.. So if you want to upgrade to it you end up not only getting the chip but also having to get a whole new mobo to go with it... Gets pricey real quick...

2. The price of intel is outragous...

3. As for being better quality then amd... I have had more problems out of intel chips going south then amd chips... So i stick with what works best for me...


What can i say good about intel.. Not a whole lot really since pretty much every intel chip ive used has destroyed itself somehow/someway...

What i like about amd is simple...

1. They keep with a current socket setup till they HAVE to change to go to the next level of performance...Letting people upgrade without having to get another Mobo to go with it...

2. Only had 1 amd chip go south on me... And that was my fault completely..

3. They seem to run a lot more stable then Intel chips...

4. Intel cant touch the price/performance aspect that AMD offers...

There are just a few things... When ever im asked about what people should get i tell them buy what they want since its there computer... If asked for my personal opnion ill tell them to buy amd and put that extra money they save into other upgrades...

You know what I find funny? I ran tests on my AMD XP1800+ (in Sisoft Sandra) and it tells me that my 1800+ runs faster than a P4 2GHz! Actually the stats were if I'm not mistaken PR2254. And this is at a totally unaltered speed. My CPU is not overclocked and runs at the normal 133MHz FSB at 1.53GHz. Now if a Xp1800+ can beat a P4 2GHz then an XP2200+ should very well beat the 2.5Ghz or more.

I'll try to remember to post a screenshot of it whenever I get back home.

Yes, you can post benchmarks in SiSoft Sandra and whatever meaningless numbers you wish, the AMD will beat the nearest Intel and probably the few above it, but in gaming you can't disregard Intel's dominating AMD's because, though they get fewer operations per clock, they have so many more MHZ it makes the difference, often by over 30%. And, I believe, Intel is well ahead of AMD technology-wise, as they are already prompting their next Prescott core which will have a .09u chip -- translating to higher clock speeds, and lower temperatures -- versus the .13u Thoroughbred and the next Barton core with added Cache. AMD adds extra Cache on new chips, Intel adds more MHZ. Plus, a big caveat with current AMD chips is their mere 133mhz/266DDR FSB; once they bring out chips with 166mhz the tables may turn.

That is the exact reason why i hate intel.

AMD CPU's are far better than Intel's.
They are cheaper, easier to o/c and all together better. They have lower clock speeds but perform better. e.g. Athlon XP 2000+ against P4 2.0GHz.

AMD fans are like Honda fans, saying they get more performance [horsepower] per megahert [liter], when it really doesn't matter: they don't have enough performance [horsepower] period. And although AMD really shouldn't be compared to Honda, it's the best I could think of, as they are also predominantly cheap and slower than competing manufacturers.

A year from now, this may be untrue. But as long as AMD pushes back its product launches, Intel will be performance king.

I'm awaiting the Hammer definitely, to see if it really can do the things they say it does; but until it comes out, I will go by what is currently known: Intel's highest is faster than AMD's highest.

Now if we could only combine Intel's brute MHZ with AMD's performance/megahert to create a Pentathlon... :D
