Intel regains performance crown from AMD

Posted on Wednesday, March 08 2006 @ 21:47:06 CET by


Intel fanboys have been waiting for years for this moment, whereas AMD fanboys are now full of denial.

The company presented a system with a 2.66GHz (1067MB FSB) Conroe processor on a Intel 975X motherboard and compared it to an AMD Athlon 64 FX-60 overclocked to 2.80GHz on a DFI RD480 motherboard. Both systems used 1GB memory (the AMD system DDR400 and the Intel system DDR2-667) and a pair of CrossFire Radeon X1900 XT graphics cards.

Intel expects its Conroe processor will be about 20 percent faster than AMD's offering across all benchmarks.

Here are the benchmark results:
Quake 4 - r_useSMP = 0 (1280 x 960, high quality)
