Pros Good price to performance ratio, excellent all round.
Cons A lot of forums are going to be filled with arguments between die-hard fans of both sides now.
Summary Great CPU from Intel which performs well and is currently cheaper than it's biggest rival. There are going to be some strong performers with this thing inside.
(That's a big deal coming from me! Check out my name)
Pros Fast, Cheap, Energy efficient
Cons Not avaliable for retail until end of July :-(
Summary Intel has a winner on its hands. Conroe is faster, cheaper and more power efficient than anything AMD currently has. AMD's response price drops, it seems like a desperate move. Even if AMD releases a quad-core processor that beats the Core 2 Duo next year, will AMD be able to produce them fast enough and will the prices be competive?
Pros Price and performance
Cons AMD fanboys won't listen to the truth.
Summary AMD has been beating Intel into a sad little pulp, but after losing a huge amount of market share intel is back to regain its crown!
The chips are fast, powerful, and (relativly) cheap. Intel has finaly packed more power into its Ghz, and there is nothing bad about these chips.
I have only had a very small amount of time spent with these guys, but they are amazing, I hope to get one soon, maybe after they come down in price a little bit it will make it to one of my computers.
Pros Its better than AMD - (finally Intel has cost & performance act together)
Cons Where can I buy one?
Summary I was thinking about building a new AMD system soon - but after reading this article it makes me want to run out & get the Intel instead.
The sleeping giant has finally awakened - lets get some kickass systems with Intel inside
Pros the tests are showing this thing kicks ass
Cons cry baby AMD hardliners
Summary I don't have one but after reading tests on it this thing will bring Intel back to the front. AMD will always be second place. Oh yeah my review is passed on test results not personal experience but I still have an opinion.
