AM2 is on it's way

AnandTech pits a brand new AM2 paired with DDR2 against a s939 with fast DDR RAM.  Any guesses who wins which benchmarks?  Head on over to find out.

"This is our first opportunity to look more closely at an AM2 DDR2 controller that might answer

these questions about memory performance, since it is the first AM2 design to outperform Socket

939. Earlier AM2 spins could not match 939 memory performance, but they continued to improve. This

is remarkable when you consider that new Intel processors pretty much have performed like final

shipping processors some 5 months ahead of launch. AMD, on the other hand, has done most of their

development work on the DDR2 memory controller in the last 3 months with just 6 weeks remaining

before launch."
