Did anyone else notice that the benchmarks are not compariable. First off what other programs are being run? Were the benchmarks done by the same people? With the same systems (- board and chip). Also did anyone else notice that the p4 had 1gb of ram and all the a64's had only 512? Hardly an ownage. I absoutley love fanboy bias. The only way to run a comparison like this one is using the same ram, harddrives, powersupply, cd-rom, ect and have a fresh clean install of the os and then compare them. When I did benchmarks in the past that was a basis of a clean bench. I toss any other wibble out with the trash. The person running the bench on the a64 could have been running folding at the time. Who knows?
