“Last week in Part I, we took a look at the AMD dual-core Athlon 64 X2 4800’s performance on 64-bit Windows. As it turned out, Windows XP Pro X64 ran most 32-bit applications just fine on the X2 4800, and 64-bit code showed a few modest performance gains.” This week, they focus on Intel.
64-bit Windows Dual-Core Shootout, Part II

This seems like a pointless line of articles, I mean testing 32bit code on different word-sized cpus? How about testing native code on each cpu, under different Operating Systems? I guess now that it’s AMD vs. Intel it should become a little more interesting.
An ok review but nothing new here, I’ve seen most of these tests a dozen times.
How about some 64-bit dual-core Linux benchmarks that allow more direct comparison? It would be interesting to see how much faster applications run in Linux on those systems.
