As compared with 939

An interesting read and you can see for yourself that the performance increase is not as much as hoped.

With Intels Conroe around the corner and only slight increases from 939 then it may be a dissapointing next socket for AMD.

socket AM2 Performance

However: this performance is excellent seeing as Anand have only seen decreases in performance from AM2 before so this is certainly a step up.

The real world performance does not seem to be immense: but the bandwidth increase in ScienceMark is 36%

We will wait until AM2 is released to see if AMD can pull some more performance out of AM2

If you choose to and manage to pull off an unlock and get a solid OC, you'll own all of them except for the 7800GT :)

Well it runs on OpenGL which nvidia seems to be very good at running: most probably as it was developed in partnership with nvidia ;)
