Why is it that new articles always appear when I'm browsing the forums and not when I open the front page? It has happened three times in the past two months. I browse article discussion forums and notice that there supposed to be new article just uploaded that wasn't there when I checked front page 10 minutes ago...

BTW why does it say amd will still be more affordable? The way I read the table Core Duo will cost less per CPU clock. Of course there may be performance differences as I haven't been following performance reviews, but price wise intel wins?

We specifically target the changes to occur when you are in the forums. ;) :lol:

Did anyone else notice that the article mentioned Chuck Norris as an AMD employee? Was AMD having some security issues and they had to bring in the real Texas Hammer?

rofl yes i noticed it. i thought it was a joke or something.

quote from original article.

Hey Guys,
I'm sitting in a keynote from AMD's Chuck Moore, ...

lol can someone fix that? or is it intentional? AMD planning to round house kick intel or something? =p

all of these are going to be the new 940 socket? or are some going to be 939 and 754? It would be nice to build a new computer around the new socket if it isnt too expense, then you get the best of both worlds, cheap and upgradeable.

No luck. :( The new Turion X2s will be socket S1. All AMD CPUs will change sockets to support DDR2.

I'd really like to see all four X2 3800+ compared here at SPCR in the near future.

T64 review here. Nothing exciting.

Just the kind of performance you'd expect from the TurionX2 really. It is quite impressive that they are able to provide this level of performance in the 35W TDP envelope however, especially when you look at the size of the core! :shock:

This ought to bode well for the K8 family once AMD finally moves to the 65nm process, either with a lower TDP at similar levels of performance to current chips or keeping the TDP at similar levels whilst improving performance.

We're not expecting consumer chips from AMD on the 65nm process until 2007 though are we? I'd guess Intel will have the edge until then.

I love amd, but merom will embarrass it.

where is 65nm amd? mid 2007 is too late to recover the huge slaughter of its name as performance/watt/price king.

Conroe is out before christmas and so will be the low wattage version.

blech.

(however, ill never buy it, just the same)

Does anyone realize that a yonah of the same ghz is faster than than a turion, and cooler?

amd overpriced its dual core chips when it knew it had intel beat (still overpriced, 4200 is great, i own it but its not cheap), now intel has higher price because it has AMD beat.

blech. sickens me! :evil:

Well it's actually quite the opposite. The smaller core, the harder it is to keep it cool. More dissipating heat per area (if the TDP is the same, of course).

C2 looks really nice to me, and it's only two months left until it will be here. Even the older, slower CD is faster than X2 in every benchmark in this article when running at the same speed except when encoding MP3.

Is Intel continuing to use 'typical' rather than maximum TDP for Conroe/Core 2 Duo? The 65W figure that has been touted would be very nice, but I don't quite trust it yet; even if Intel has said max, I'd like to know that there isn't a footnote saying 'max typical' or something like that.

Just listing one max TDP for a whole range of CPUs is what frustrates me. Because it’s not always clear what the fastest chip within that range will be, it makes it hard to extrapolate actual TDPs for individual chips within the range. E.g. with Conroe, does the 65W max relate to the 2.67 GHz part or to the 2.93 GHz part that was alluded to but now seems to have been bumped in favour of a 2.93 EE part? The EE parts were initially announced with a max TDP of 95W I seem to remember, although this one should be less than that as the Woodcrest 3.0 has a TDP of 80W and that has a 1333 FSB. I’m not sure how much bumping up the FSB whilst keeping the same clock speed affects TDP. Is there a formula for calculating that?

Looking at the CPU power consumptions that were measured in the SPCR Survey, it looks as if Dothan & Yonah comfortably fell within the max TDP for their respective ranges. I’d rather see real-world values for TDPs and not values that can only be expected under laboratory conditions.
