The competition should be between the current performance king -the AMD
Opteron- and the new Intel Xeon Woodcrest. Preliminary benchmarks show that
the Woodcrest is faster than an Opteron 285, but we should wait until the
new socket F Opteron shows up in a few weeks. The Intel Core 2 Duo is
aimed to compete with the Athlon series.

As far as I read on web, the new "Core 2 Duo" introduces tremendous changes
related to performance, heating and price. That's the reasons why I'm still
waiting for the release.
And if the promises and pre-benchmarks were too optimistic, then at least I
benefit from the new prices of the AMD processors :)
I must say that I didn't see any comparison of the new Core 2 Duo with the
Opteron dual core. Only x2 (including the FX-60) where used in the
What I heard about the new AM2 solution from AMD didn't need much attention
far as i understood.
Again, I'm not hardware expert and all I know on the subject is from
around. So I might be wrong.
