quote:1) 1) Is Conroe a true 64-bit chip like the AMD chips are? If so, how do you think it will perform with 64-bit Vista and the new 64-bit capable games coming out next year?
2) Does Intel have a tradition of having yield and volume issues when they move to a new manufacturing process like 65nm with Conroe?
3) What has been the average cycle for an AMD new core to come out (4 years)? And how long as the current AMD core been out?
4) If the AMD chips had a huge 4MB cache like Conroe, would that improve performance?
quote:Did anyone else notice that on the Intel Quake 4 timedemo performance *increased* for both processors but with Anand's timedemo performance *decreased*
quote:on average we’re still seeing a bit over a 20% increase in performance over an overclocked Athlon 64 FX-60.
quote:Especially looking at titles like F.E.A.R. where Conroe's performance advantage averages over 40%
