Interesting benchmarks :). Pitty that AMD now is more expensive than Intel :(.

You're definitely getting more for the money. The Athlon X2 3800+ are pretty reasonably priced.

Can't figure out why Chris Blanos hasn't updated his site to include dual core chips. Hard to make heads or tails of what is what. I think people have been treating X2s as 2 processors...

Check this one ... i think that actual dual core xeons and pentiums D are only a transition to complete new generation of processors ... perhaps this are the first processors for future Macs too ...

So they are comparing an Intel model that hasn't even hit the market yet...against AMD's top model that came out almost 6 months ago.... I guess that's what Intel has to do to appear as if they are in the game.
