BTW, we should look for the reviews that compare the 2 GHz Barcelona to the E5335 Xeon (1333 FSB, 2 GHz)...I do hope that Intel gets one to Anand for the review!
Your good . The highest possiable figure for amd who is on 3rd stepping B01. The one tested that came out day after 30,000 3dmark lol.
Than for penryn a totally new process never before produced for the market on a chipset that Intel says its really not intended for.X38 being the correct chipset . On A0 stepping lol. This really doesn't apply to AMD as their fanbois and AMD themselves have stated all along the K10 will work great on the present sockets a chipset . Is that not so? So Intel penryn on A0 stepping using a chipset not really intended to be used with it but can be. Only is 5% faster than conroe. LOL
Here my prediction Conroe 10% faster in most apps than K10. Penryn 25-30% faster than K10 desktop part. @=clocks . Now AMDs top k10 part for desk top . Vs Intels penryns top clocked part . I give Penryn 40-50% performance advantage . Even tho the clocks are NOT=. Than when we talk O/C its a pure as-s beating of k10 by penryn.
I am sure that intel will supply a 50 watt c2d or maybe even a 35watt penryn to test against K10. Or do you want it all intel xeon with fbdimms vs K10. But that really wouldn't be fair now would it . You would want the exact same memory used wouldn't you? you know apples to apples? I am thinking you would like to pick the bench marks also . Ya that would be fair. No it wouldn't fair would be the best amd has to offer against the best intel will have to offer. At same clock .
So it should be AMD with the best DDR2 available @ DDR2 800 vs Intels best with x38 chipset against Intel DDR3 1333. Using the certified memory for intels X38 chipset. That would be real world.
But we know it won't be done this way, The reviewers to scew results will use AMDs best @ DDR2800 Vs Intel using DDR2 800. In the guis of apple to apple compare. Which isn't real world. Fact is if intels X38 chipset has settings for DDR3 1600 thats what should be used . but that won't happen.
You wouldn't want intel to run at a bandwidth disadvantage would ya. All this can be done without O/C anything. Just pick DDR3 800 with a 1;2 ratio presto. Amd can use 1066 if the reviewers so choose . But nothing can be overclocked.
