yep, not unless your running a server, barely any normal programs will actually use it to its capability, Windows XP included and XP64 is still beta.

The AMD 64's aren't exactly a bargain either, plus the benchmarks I've seen on the FX version have been less than overwhelming. The reg P4C's seem to keep up with it ;) .

We won't know what the 64 FX will do until it has a real 64 bit OS and programs compiled on a 64 bit complier. Say in about 2-3 years.

Which is a good thing because by then it will down to $100.

Here are some benchmarks... the Athlon 64 keeps up to the P4EE in every benchmark, only a few seconds off of the P4EE score.... no way a P4C will be anywhere close...

an oc'd p4c can keep up witht eh athlonFX... the athlon64 3200+ is around the same performance as a top of the line p4c...

the EE runs hot as hell and is expensive but it is the fastest out there... and doesn't need registered memory...

Either way AMD seems to be doing ok. Tommys just let out a complete benchmark on an FX-51 OCed to 2.8Ghz. It seems to scale well, and the performance is quite overwhelming. You might want to take a look.

sixty four bit, smixty smour blit.. who cares? personally, i'd rather spend that grand on a house payment and feel good about my house not getting beaten in bench marks in 6 months by the next new house on the block.

(if that makes any sense, my analogys rarely do)

What is this telling us??
You'd have to OC an Intel P4 (@3.2GHz) to whatever speed to keep up with an AMD running @ 2.2GHz? :p

effectively yes..

but the good thing is intel cpu's are scalable and oc well...

btw for the price the 800mhz intel cpu's are better than comparative amd cpu's... :)

yah I wanted to see the comparison between that and the 4.1 ghz prometia cooled p4 :cool:

now THAT would have been interesting...

dunno if they have done that with the EE though...
