    AnAndtech says,
    As you page through the preview looking at the test results you will come to see that most performance increases are all rather minimal. The memory Bandwidth was increased, but that is to be expected. Why move to a new socket to have only marginal performance increases? It's not like socket 939 AMD processors were memory starved in the first place.

    But you may move because of dropping DDR2 prices, the promise of better overclocking on nForce5, and the possibility of a wider pci-e bus lane (not that we need one...).

    Or you could do the sensible thing and wait for Conroe.

    ...sensible and Conroe don't belong in the same sentence, paragraph, story.

    Until tests are run on the final mobos and CPUs it's all speculation - especially Conroe and friends. I wouldn't put much stock in current reports for any future CPUs.

    You wouldn't put stock on possibly the greatest architechture to come out of intel for the last ten years? Tests have been run, and the results are in - Conroe kicks ass. It is the only sensible option out there... I don't get your argument?
