Question Athlon64 Benches. Non-certified source.

Have a look at www.e04hardware.com/k8a64/k8a64.htm for BM's of an Athlon64, if you wish. AMD booster that I am, I'm not chomping at the bit for an Athlon64.

I'm waiting to see how it performs with 64bit programs, given that the 64bitness allows for faster data moves and wider registers. Otherwise it's a bit like running 16bit programs on a 32bit CPU, you'd not expect them to be able to take advantage of the CPU's features.

Never mind the fact that the motherboard is unlikely to be release quality!

Very good points, Aedan. To be honest, I don't see 64-Bit benefitting me all that much. I'll have to wait and see.

My brother-in-law was saying that 32bit to 64bit processors aren't a linier relationship when software is written in 64bit code. The relationship is more logarithmic so true 64bit software and apps should be amazingly fast.
