    That's kind of cool. Actually, I think it's 512KB per core, making it 1MB in all.

    Wow cheap for a dual core AMD. Makes me REALLY wish I had got AM2 not 939.

    Wow they changed the specs, it was 2Ghz, and 2x256Kb.

    I just thought about it, its a pretty even race clock-wise now lol, 1.86Ghz (E63(2)0/E4300) vs. 1.9Ghz Athlon X2 3600+. They are both 65NM, how about some clock per clock ratios here, and performance per watt :) I have a felling of what would win :).

    It would be an easyswap out for you, all AM2 boards support 65NM with a BIOS update.

    Hard swapup for me... especially since I just spent $120 on a new SLI motherboard, and $140 on new DDR1 RAM (that's all Canadian money). Oh well, I'm nowhere near the limits of socket 939 as far as CPU support. I can go all the way up to FX-60 so I'll be on 939 for a while to come. I'm probably gonna wait till Intel makes a new socket to replace LGA775 before I go off 939.

    Lol, ten years later,
    MetalX says "Im just waiting for DDR6, my DDR1 and 939 system is still runnin strong!"

    This is great! I would consider this for my new Rig which I hope to get before spring. If I am to go the Dual Core way I still would go for one with a higher clock speed. Still I would go for the 65nm.

    No, Core 2 Duo will be about 110$ by then, it would be a very dumb move, and the Core 2's still probably use less power.
