New Intel products to be unveiled

By Derek Sooman on March 6, 2006, 6:05 PM
Intel will begin one of its twice-annual developers' forums in San Francisco tomorrow, and will be demonstrating upcoming chips for business computers, laptops and desktops. It is expected that the company will unveil chips for server computers that run corporate networks, with barrels of processing power but which use less energy than previous designs.

"My expectation is that Intel's new products are definitely going to narrow the gap with AMD, and in some cases may even close the gap," said Nathan Brookwood, head of semiconductor consultancy Insight64.

Dont dog intel. Their new 920 D Presler core overclock better then the amd x2 3800 and for a lower price. Nice. Personally i am all about speed and dont about the brand. Blind Loyalty to a product serves no purpose.

Does it even come close to the x2?Just looking at the Ghz rating of a chip is pointless, it's something intel has trained people to do through their marketing.

Your right of course Ghz rating is pointless. Here is a good article the shows real world apps on the new 920 D prelser core.[url]http://www.overclockers.com.au/article.php?id=4524
7&P=1[/url]Basically over clocking the 920 D is just as fast if not slightly better as a over clocked X2 3800. When you factor in the cost of the cpus the 920 D is much cheaper. Interesting question about performance per wattage what is the point? Now as for wattage the Pentium runs hot hot. So the best bang for the buck is the 920 D. However one thing not mentioned is the cost electricity of running a computer based on power hungry 920 D. vs the low wattage X2 3800. Maybe after a few years the total cost of ownership would be more for the 920 D than the X2 3800 thus losing out on the your initial savings. Hmmmm….Now if AMD would just cost have a huge price cut on X2 3800 or better yet the operton 165.

The X2 3800 OC'D TO 2.5GHZ UNDER LOAD its at 40-43'c and Idle it's 38c, on water cooling.It runs 2-4 times faster then my none OC'D (single core) iny p4 3.2ghz wich runs at 48c Idle and 58c underload on stock cooling, wich is power hungy.What I'm trying to say is that the X2 3800 is worth every penny and dollar spent for a cheaper price.
