read on to see the first benchmark with an Intel beating an Athlon in ages...

What temps is that chip running at?

In fact that pattern is repeated throughout FEAR and Far Cry. Whoever programmed the "multi-threading" in those games deserves a wooden spoon of some sort

Nice review as usual bigz; too bad netburst is being killed off now; Intel's new efforts to tweak the silicon and use minimal power for the clock speeds theyre getting could really have given netburst one last good run against the Athlon 64 - at let us enthusiasts go nuts with the overclocking ;) :D
