AMD athlon 64x2 2.4ghz 4600+ vs intel core 2 duo e6600 2.4ghz
i brought up the "compare" page on these two suckers.
there is a $106 difference and i dont know why.
the differences i see, aside from brand ...
AMD = 200mhz
intel = n/a
what is HT ??
2. L1 cache
AMD = 128kb+128kb
intel = 32kb+32kb
i would imagine that larger capacity cache would be better, yet price does not reflect this.
3. L2 cache
AMD = 2x512kb
intel = 4M shared.
i assume the intel has the AMD here beat but why ??
4. manufacturing tech
AMD = 90nm
intel = 60nm.
i think this has to do with physical size and mostly relevent for socket matching purposes but im probably wrong.
so what is it ??
AMD = n/s
intel = 1066mHz
now ive always understood this to be important, so why is AMD lacking here ??
and is it even relevent ??
the remainder of differnces to not seem significant, but pls enlighten me if otherwise; hyper-transport support, multimedia instruction, voltage, hyper-threading support.
