Some Athlon64 lovin'

By on
GERMAN TECH MAGAZINE c't has published a set of [URL=http://www.theinquirer.net/?article=6737]benchmarks[/URL] in the latest paper edition of its magazine which some subscribers have received today. The magazine, in an article by Georg Schnurer, compares a prototype 1.2GHz Athlon64, a 1.2GHz Athlon XP and a Pentium 4 running at 2.2GHz.

Not bad really for a 1.2 GHz processor, my guess is that it will all come down to timing from both AMD and Intel (and probably pricing) once these new CPUs start rolling in the retail.
