I pulled this article off of the nforcershq forum. http://www.xbitlabs....y/athlon64.html

I have to say that it looks pretty good but not as good as I expected. The 1MB L2 cache blew me away but it starts at only 1.6Ghz.

The only areas that it excelled over canterwood was in compression and gaming.

Seeing how this is the first review, I suppose the final version could be better. If it does in fact compare closer to Intel's, I could gain some ground. It is compatible with 32-bit apps which is a HUGE plus.

I assume the real benefits will be seen when 64bit apps become available.

Anyway, its a good read.
