Linux Hardware has made a comparison of a Dual Intel Xeons system clocked at 2.4GHz and a dual Athlon MP 2200+ system (1.8GHz)
After many hours of benchmarking and a long look at our testing procedures, we finally are back with the system of the year processor match-up. This time we have revised our testbeds to include the latest from both Intel and AMD in the workstation market. In one corner we have Dual Intel Xeons clocked at 2.4GHz running with 1GB of RDRAM using an 860 chipset. In the other corner, we have AMD's new bad boys, dual Athlon MP 2200+s (1.8GHz) running with 1GB of Registered PC2100 DDR SDRAM on the 760MPX chipset. The boards we will be featuring in this review are from Iwill, the DX400-SN and the MPX2, for the Xeons and Athlons respectively. In this review you will find information on the core architecture of the processors and chipsets and then you'll see how they perform in several areas including real-world and synthetic benchmarks as well as a price vs. performance comparison.
