"Value+Power=AMD"4.5 starson by B3NI4MIN0.80
Pros: Dual Core 64bit - 2mb cache
Cons: "Pioneer" of what's to come - Socket 939??
Summary: As an ex Intel user, I am glad that the PC's I work with today use AMD processors. Without AMD, we'd still be running our computers at 166MHz with a 33MHz Front Side Bus. This Athlon 64 has awesome specs... the dual core makes it even better by ending the generation of only one thread, the price is reasonable for that much power.. but it's too early to get one if AMD is planning on converting everything to socket 940. In any case, if there is an emergency where you need a dual core processor immediately I highly recommend AMD, the advanced specs tell the whole story. And don't judge a company by its new logo, judge the company by the products they make and the reputation they have.
