All prices were grabbed from anand's RTPE and rounded to whole numbers to make things neat. Here goes:

P4 775 | A64 939
------------------------------------------------
3.73 GHz EE $1000 - FX-55 $825
3.46 GHz EE $1000 - FX-53 $725
3.8 GHz 570J $650 - 4000+ $525
3.6 GHz 660 $600 - 3800+ $350
3.4 GHz 650 $400 - 3500+ $275
3.2 GHz 640 $275 - 3200+ $175
3.0 GHz 630 $225 - 3000+ $125
2.8 GHz 520 $150 -


I'd like to know if I am making the right comparison here. Excluding performance, would you say this list is a good comparison of what is available from both manufacturers today? I'm not real familiar with what AMD has to offer, as you can tell from my rigs. Did I match up the CPUs correctly?(starting from the top, with the "best", or most expensive, rather). :)

How about a "you suck"?

:p

I have no idea, but if the performance benchies are in agreement with your list, then intel indeed is losing the hype game.

Not exactly the answer I was looking for considering that I could give a rats a** 'bout benchmark graphs and really don't care much about price either. :cool: But hay, what can I expect at this hour on a Sunday? :) I was more concerned with a direct comparison of CPUs starting with the most expensive and going down from there. I just wasn't sure if I was missing something from the AMD side, cuz like you said, i suk in that department.

I suppose the advertising matchup is as correct as can be if that's what you are looking for. But the only name scheme I choose to consider when matching up cpus is $xxx.xx scheme.

Since PR ratings and different architectures arose years ago, I don't really care what each manufacturer calls it. I know about what I want to spend, take a few cpus above and below the target expenditure, then compare the performance and features vs. cost including the rest of the platform (ie: mobo, ram).

Yeah the 600 series are rather expensive compared to the 500s

$645 - Pentium 4 570 3.8GHz LGA775
$349 - Pentium 4 560 3.6GHz LGA775
$245 - Pentium 4 550 3.4GHz LGA775
$213 - Pentium 4 540 3.2GHz LGA775
$168 - Pentium 4 530 3.0GHz LGA775
$150 - Pentium 4 520 2.8GHz LGA775

Yes and also the 500 series are hotter compared to the 600s.

That's right! and making those comparisons intel is lost.

Yes, thats what I wanted to know, and thanks for taking the time to reply.

Even if we have different views, I gotta respect your tried and true approach.
