And, i was looking, and reading, and found out that Intel was the first to employ a dual processor system, through their Pentium D, then followed by AMD one month later. What's the difference of Pentium D, Core Duo, and Core 2 Duo ? How does it compare to the AMD Athlon 64 X2 ?
I'm quite confused now, since I saw that, for the same clock speed mentioned, AMD Athlon 64 X2 seems a lot cheaper than Core 2 Duo. Haven't seen any Core Duo around in the newegg.com yet, but Pentium D is a lot cheaper, compared to Core 2 Duo, with the same clock speed.
Or am i wrong to assume that clock speed is the most important thing, to measure a processor?
I was thinking of buying either a "Intel Core 2 Duo E6400" or "AMD Athlon 64 X2 X4600"
But, to compare the prices and clock speed, Intel Core 2 Duo E6400 = $ 187
AMD Athlon 64 X2 X4600 = $ 115
How can this be so obvious?
