Roadmaps seen by the INQ show eight Intel processors compared against six AMD CPUs, with the competitor's microprocessors using the AM2 socket.
We hastily scribbled some details down on the back of a fag packet in the Porcupine, and the table looks something like this. The numbers at the end of the chip description are Sysmark 2004SE overall scores.
|Intel CPUs||AMD CPUs|
|E6700 (2.66GHz, 4MB) 353|
|E6600 (2.40GHz, 4MB) 328|
|E6400 (2.13GHz, 2MB) 297|
|X2 5200+ (2.6GHz/2x1MB) 276|
|E6300 (1.86GHz, 2MB) 269||X2 5000+ (2.6GHz, 2x512K) 270|
|X2 4600+ (2.4GHz, 2x512K) 251|
|P'tiumD 945 (3GHz,2x2MB) 246||X2 4200+(2.2GHz, 2x512K) 241|
|P'tiumD 915 (2.8GHz, 2x2) 220||X2 3800+(2GHz, 2x512K) 219|
|P'tiumD 820 (2.8GHz,2x1) 211||X2 3600+(2GHz, 2x256K) 212|
