Not worth the wait
21 November 2006
Summary: I waited a very long time to get this CPU. I was one of the first people who ordered it when it came out in July and I must say that it was not worth the wait. While a good processor on its own, it can't really compare to the poweress of the Intel Core 2 Duo. Even with the on Die memory controller, the C2D can outpace it any day of the week.
Pros: 1) Uses DDR2 memory 2) Good price/performance
Cons: 1) Can't beat the Core 2 Duo 2) DDR2 only good for 4000+ clock speeds
