Hi everyone,

I've seen the latest prices for processors and i noted the athlon 64 am2 4800 has pretty much the same price with intel's e6400 - around 240 euro (it has in Greece anyway).
Which processor do you think performs better?

Thanks

Here is a nice writeup on the e6300 and e6400 with gaming benchmarks and also some synthetic testing. Obviously, the pricing chart is a little dated, but the performance aspect is still relavent. It looks like the two processors you are comparing also have similar performance, so it comes down to a question of personal preference between AMD and Intel.

Pretty similar, the biggest advantage to either is nothing to do with CPU performance but AMD motherboards being a little better speed and price wise.

Id go for the e6400 or greater conroe, not the e6300. Id rather have a e6400 conroe rather than a amd x2 4800 aswell.. Dont bother with the e6300.

I thought the 4800 was no longer being produced, and I also thought that they weren't making an AM2 version of it but just selling out all the 939 CPU's.
