My Athlon64 3200+ vs. Core 2 Extreme X6800
Nice eh ?
No comments ??
not to mention my 3200+ gives much higher in all of them..... @2.8Ghz
Must be a mistake or is irrevelant.
Try running Oblivion at 1600X1200 MAX AA AF even with a CF system.
Try running the future games at similar settings.
Although I do agree that your CPU is good enough to be equiped with a 1900XT, by no means does it require CF systems nor can it make full use of the card just like the X6800 can.
In any synthetic or practical benchmark you will loose. Whether booting the operating system or installing it, whether opening 'My Computer' or multitasking. Whether audio or multimedia or graphics or games or anything. You loose by huge margins in everything. Even in gaming you do, but it may not always matter as much as for now your CPU if equipped with a better GPU(more RAM etc also) can survive most games just fine, but not like the X6800 for sure. Just measure the minimum fps.
Compare your Super Pi scores to X6800 scores.
1)Either you are ignorant.
2)Or you are proud that a irrelevant benchmark exists where your CPU beats the X6800, which is practically not possible, thus you are taking pleasure, anyway I too have amd 64 winchester 3200, which core do you have?
Well .. depends on the overall system a lot ... did u notice ur ram ?? those are doing awesome specially at the lower latency which matters like hell at high clocks ... thus ur pc is mem. efficient in every way .. but in actual test the X6800 will be ahead by miles ... specially try some encoding / decoding .. or some 3DMark CPU tests ... i mean .. look at the CPU Queen and later tests ...
The CPU Queen and later tests show the actual situation.
EDITeathvirus already mentioned that before me.
what are we talking about here, i dont see his processor nowhere near X6800 in those benchies, it has lost badly in all benchmarks, so where is the conflict, everything is as it should be. what are u guys so astounded about.
No one was ever astounded except the original poster. Except for the memory benchmarks, the Core 2 Duo won everything by a huge margin.
Well .. mem. benchmarks are not Intel strong points ... even a 2800+ beat a 965XE in mem. tests .. specially latency tests ... but the pentiums do shine in SSE2/SSE3 tests ...
well integrated memory controller needs to be given some credit.
Yeah, at least due to it we can see our procs kicking some serious butts on some extreme intel procs.
that's not procs kicking butts, but memory stick, so u got to give credit to our memory, and i've seen almost every tenth overclocked memory can get the top slot in everest, no big deal.
