AMD has run out of the newer cores, the new ones in development are another 6 or 7 months away after the new plant is up and running at full rate. So intels gonna have an adavatage for a little bit.
But gaming AMD might be pulling of another swift one on intel with the core unification technology they are going to put in some of the later batch AM2s basically a chip that turns your two 64bit cores into one very very powreful 32bit cpu as games dont need dual core or 64bits they are gonna make use of it should sizably increase performance but its still not gonna be seen for a couple of months.
The first conroe benchmarks appeared early last month though so this is kinda old news. Robson looks better its pretty much the same core except they have a new very large flash memory cache.
Im gonna wait a while until all the new cpus are out and see what they are like, probably im gonna wait unitl a new system is actually needed after vista is out next year ill probably build a whole new system as alot of the technology should be more developed and there are alot of new lines in development that wont be coming out till then, flash memory CPU cache technology is quite good but wnot be seen for a little bit. That and Xdr memory is a little while away as well and its supposed to be out fairly soon.
