View Full Version : Intel / AMD - Dual Core - HT and X64

08-27-2005, 12:06 PM

I have a question regarding speed and performance. I've checked through the thread in the discussion forums and haven't quite gotten a definitave answer regarding Intel vs. AMD and Dual Core with/out HT technology and X64 vs X86 systems.

I'm wondering if anyone out there has done a side by side comparison to dispell any myths about either setup? I'm assuming NewTek Dev. has done this? I'm just trying to figure out where I'll get the most for my money. So far, it seems like AMD still offers the best performance for the price. But I'm not sure I'm qualified to make that statement since I may be a little biased as I've always shopped for AMD. :)

It's been a very looooong time since I've upgrade my system. I'm still using a 1GHz AMD Athlon. Helpful information would be what Chip, Motherboard, RAM combos.

perhaps I'm in the wrong newsgroup...

Maybe the LW-PC forum? Here's a link to some folks which might be more responsive:
