Intel After an 18-page in-depth review of Intel's new processor line, The Tech Report concludes: "After years of wandering in the wilderness, Intel has recaptured the desktop CPU performance title in dramatic fashion. Both the Core 2 Extreme X6800 and the Core 2 Duo E6700 easily outperform the Athlon 64 FX-62 across a range of applications - and the E6600 is right in the hunt, as well. Not only that, but the Core 2 processors showed no real weaknesses in our performance tests."

You beat me to the link!  I found that one earlier too, as I was compiling a series of posts with links to reviews, then found that and gave up(pointed to it).

Looks like the reviews are unanimous(excepting the jokers @ hardocp, questionable "review") in supporting those early benchmarks showing core 2 duo whooping it up on AMD.  As a matter of fact, the review numbers look relatively scary, well at least if I were AMD I'd be scared, but since I'm not, I'm happy.

No reason for AMD to be afraid.

They just need fab a better product to keep competition alive and keep CPU prices low.
