WORLD EXCLUSIVE: Intel's Conroe spanks AMD FX-62's botty - for real news post from TweakTown's online news computing and technology content pages.

Hexus have just posted up more evidence of Intel's upcoming Conroe platform kicking arse against the newly launched AMD AM2 platform (and existing AMD S939 / Intel Presler platforms). The benchmark results certainly put a dampner on the excitement of AM2 surfacing today.

Should AMD be concerned? Unless AM2 has a secret "turbo" function hidden within its circuitry waiting to be unleashed, i'd be thinking theres some sweat falling onto the floor at AMD headquarters.


HEXUS has managed to run a complete set of benchmarks for two speed grades of Intel Conroe CPUs in our HEXUS labs - guaranteed free of bias - and we've compared their performance to the Presler Extreme Edition 965 and, uniquely, to today's baby from AMD, its Athlon 64 FX-62.
