My bad, my apologies. I didn't notice the "2" - didn't even know about it. Looks good, but it doesn't look much different from the Core Duo, EMT64 and the shared L2 cache aside.
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 will 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 comparative benchmarks.
Not a ton of reviews yet at this point, but a few are coming out.
What I heard about the new AM2 solution from AMD didn't need much attention i far as i understood.
Again, I'm not hardware expert and all I know on the subject is from googleling around. So I might be wrong.
