Submission + - AMD Releases 3GHz Athlon 64 X2 6000+

mikemuch writes: "AMD's new processor, released today, has a higher clock speed than the top Intel dual core and a lower thermal envelope than AMD's recent efforts, but it still trails Intel in game, application, and media encoding benchmarks, and it still uses only a 90nm manufacturing process. The good news is that at $459 (in bulk) it's a little bit cheaper than the closest Intel competitor, the Core 2 Duo E6700 CPU."

If computers take over (which seems to be their natural tendency), it will serve us right. -- Alistair Cooke
