Amd would do fine too, but Intel would do a little better in this situation IMO.
Hyperthreading isn't used in developer consoles like that... And BTW, who said the Athlon64s and X2s can't multitask? Shall I time how long it take me to open my ENTIRE control panel (37 items).... 5 secs.. THAT IS ALL. Any P4 peeps care to challenge?
Intel is good in NO situation at this point in time. AMD Athlon 64 Processors are better because:
They process threads faster becuase of reduced pipeline construction.
They directly access the RAM using the R4 silicon based Integrated I/O DIMM (SO DIMM for Turion and Mobile Athlon64) for blazing multitasking and high efficiency.
They run direct SSE3 instruction sets for optomized speeds in strenuous tasking such as graphics porting and compiling.
They run significantly cooler then ALL Intel chips. As a result, it is proven they last longer and have a significantly longer silicon transistor degradation scale.
The AthlonX2s feature SMTP (AMDs version of HT, but far more efficient), known as Similtaneous Multi Thread Processing
They are not nearly as expensive because AMD doesn't need to worry about monopoly maintaince pricing and threating companies to carry their products.. unlike a company I know of... -*cough*INTEL!!*cough*
AMDs stocks are going UP very very fast, and Intels are crumbling....
oh wait.. I am being sarcastic and sardonic.. Im not sad!! MUHAHAH!!!
I just upgraded this PC about 5 days ago, it is not fully tuned yet, so no 3DMark03/05 scores for you. THx for the compliements.
