BIOS issues and other concerns are addressed
Anandtech was able to score a
with Intel's Conroe and an overclocked AMD FX-60. Some
and issues were raised concerning the first test, so Anand addresses them with this update.
The performance picture with regards to Conroe hasn’t really changed all that much - on average we’re still seeing a bit over a 20% increase in performance over an overclocked Athlon 64 FX-60. While it’s worth noting that these results should be taken with a grain of salt, we really were not able to determine any cause for suspicion based on Intel’s setups. The machines were as clean as they could get, with the BIOS oversight having no tangible impact on most performance.
After this second round of tests, there doesn't appear to be anything malicious or underhanded going on Intel's part. The BIOS had little to no effect on performance and the Conroe still comes out on top. Now all we have to do is wait for AM2 Athlons.

AMD Intel Deathmatch

I wonder if Intel is going to follow up on that challenge AMD made a few months after they release Conroe. I think if these benchmarks are for real, at least Athlon is more competitive with Conroe than P4 was with Athlon.

"..I wonder if Intel is going to follow up on that challenge AMD made a few months after they release Conroe..."
I don't see Intel stooping to AMD's juvenile challenge where nobody showed up and they declared themselves the winner. LOL
The real question is will AMD reopen the challenge or is the reason they put an expiration date of December 31, 2005 now makes sense?
