The processor market has changed with the introduction of the Core 2 from Intel. AMD's new AM2 chips don't add anywhere near as much to their systems, apart from DDR2. With DDR2s looser timings, you don't really gain as much as you would think. Extremetech takes a hard look at both the performance and the cost of the high and low end of these new chips, and the battle will rage on ... at least until AMD starts up their 4x4 .
