Amd AM2 or Conroe

Recommended Posts

The main reason why Conroe is so fast is because it's been designed to be able to process 4 instructions per clock cycle. A64s can only do about 3 instructions per clock cycle.


Second reason, it's based on 65nm tech while A64s are still 90nm, thus they clock very well.


Basically, Conroe is a generation newer than A64s. So once AMD get their next gen out maybe things will be more even.


Remember AMD haven't done any major design changes to the A64 "core" since it's release. Only real changes they've made are to the memory controller and L2 cache sizes. The core, I.E. it's instruction processing units have remained more or less the same.


But, yeah Conroe will be damn fast when it's officially released and retailing.
