My friend and I recently built new computer systems. He has an AMD X2 5200 proc in his, and i have the intel c2d e6600. He is convinced that his proc is better than mine...

E6600 wins no compettion
#4 Posted by ElectricNZ (2457 posts) -
e6600 is better, since everyone overclocks c2ds......you'd be an idiot not to, and it would OC better than the 5200.
#5 Posted by damzor (2176 posts) -
the E6600 is better than the 5200+ even at stock speeds, once you OC the C2D, the X2 will be left for dead.

I guess that the "macpop is the biggest amd fanboy" thing is true then o_O

and i guess the ''electricnz the person who cant read'' is true then i clearly stated that teh e6600 is better but the 5200 is not right in the performance ratio, please old man, get some reading glasses

Yes, hands down E6600.

Actually, you said...

"e6600, the 5200x2 is on par with it but the e6600 runs cooler and whenever u feeling to oc everything is there"


Then, you clearly stated that the e6600 was better in your previous post. This, however, is a complete and utter lie. The only credit you give the e6600 is that it "runs cooler" and lets it overclock higher. You don't say it performs better, you just say it runs cooler. This might be important, if, say, two processors were neck and neck performance wise. However, it is clear to anyone that the e6600 performs MUCH better than the X2 5200.

I understand brand loyalty, but this is just stupidity. Macpop, have you seen your local optometrist lately? I believe you require reading glasses.

E6600 obviously.

I'm glad that you're able to look past my post count and actually read my post.

If the E6600 beats the AMD FX62 in most benchmarks, obviously it will beat the X2 5200+
#15 Posted by tacoeatingmonky (49 posts) -
the Intel proc. is by far the better of the two.
#16 Posted by dtrem1 (632 posts) -
Peoples brand loyalty is pathetic on here, the 6600 blows it away at stock, lol. I just upgraded from a X2 4800.
#17 Posted by macpop (3991 posts) -
if ur mean that to me, i know im a amd fanboy and i know c2d is best right now and its the best choice but later on this year barcelona is comin and its sayd to be 40% faster than clovertown and clovertown is the server version of kenstfield, so if it beats it by 40%, c2d doesnt stand a chance, and the fact thats its capable to work in todays am2 socket is even more smart to go amd
#18 Posted by dtrem1 (632 posts) -
Dude, it is a processor deep inside your case/computer. Were not comparing Ferraris to Mustangs, LOL. There I could see arguing like this... The question was if a 5200 is faster than a 6600, which it is not. Between you arguing for AMD and LordEC arguing for ATI, its getting ridiculous around here.

Are you truely that insecure that you must correct any little error that someone makes? And then you claim it's "ownage"?

Hardly anyone refers to video cards being from AMD. From what I've seen, people still call them ATI cards. It be a while before everyone refers to them as AMD video cards.

Actually, in your first post, you said that C2D processors (namely, the e6600) were on par with those from AMD (a la the X2 5200). The cooling and overclocking ability on the C2D's was the only advantage you mentioned.

Now, if cool processors make them superior, then these new energy efficient processors from AMD must be superior to most everything on the market.
#27 Posted by macpop (3991 posts) -
even if their still going by ati, its amd, the buyout deal is new which is y their still being called ati, but expect r600 to be called amd x2800xt :wink:

wow, now i know u cant read, since i was talking to to electricnz, and u come out of nowhere :roll: ill say once and ill say it again, c2d is the best for now but expect amd to come on top with barcelona and barcelona fx and 4x4
#29 Posted by pokefant (137 posts) -
but expect r600 to be called amd x2800xt :wink:macpop

And expect most people to call it an ATI x2800xt.

#32 Posted by BeavermanA (2652 posts) -
   Brand loyalty is ridiculous. What have they ever really done for you personally? You get whatever is the best performer for the right price, and right now Intel's cpus are cheaper and faster for what you get, shouldn't be any question as to what to buy. AMD would have to send over the AMD girls for a couple nights for them to get me to switch atm, well ok just an hour honestly :D.
E6600 oc > AMD anything on the market.

It is hilarious when people on here argue about hardware that is not even out yet and claiming its superiority. When it does come out neither of you will even own it anyways, so no, you STFU.

Let's see in a month.
All I am doing is looking at the paper specs and then speculating.
On paper, this you cannot disagree with, the R600 is faster then the G80.

lol i know the moment u loosse ur cool mods wont even hesitat to ban u

Uh-huh.

Anyway, I agree with the guy that said brand loyalty was stupid. It's not like either of these companies is not trustworthy. They both do the same thing. They both want your money. They both do this producing products that are superior to the other company's. When one falls behind, the other introduces a superior product, and so on and so forth. Being loyal to one brand will eventually net you an inferior product, especially when that brand's superiority is over.

Those with sense choose the best option, regardless of brand.

man u cant even read cant u, if i was a ''brand loyalty'' i would say ''c2d sucks, amd x2 all the way'' thats fanboyism, did i say that? no i belive i said both are good @ stock and price range but the e6600 is best for overclocking, and if u can see that or read then i know y ur name is pokemont, since ur prob still in the 6th grade :lol:

I can barely comprehend your post, but what I can get from it...

No, I am not in 6th grade. I cannot vouch this isn't true for you, however.

My username is some random thing I pulled out of my head.

And, I never directed my post at you. I was merely talking about brand loyalty in general. See, this is why you get offended so easily-- you take everything anyone says personally.

You tried to report a person for advertising, when he was providing BIOS updates. These updates allowed people with OEM PC's to overclock through BIOS.

A mod came in, said this wasn't illegal. You argued that it was, and posted as such. You can report things when they're legimately against the ToS, however, you tend to report everything. I wouldn't be suprised if this very post was reported for flaming.
