What is faster the Athalon64 FX-55 or the G5 2.7Ghz?
Does it really matter?
Except for the people with fragile egos can only be satisfied by bragging all about it.
Edit: this sounds like a thread better debated in the ARS Battlefront where debates can sometimes look like NerdWars.
I foresee angels doing a foxtrot on the head of a pin.
Whoever makes that Athalon better watch out, it's awfully similar to AMD's Athlon name.
Anyway, both processors will win certain benchmarks and loose certain others, while Intel's XEON processors (which also have 64bit versions) will win some others. You have to decide what you plan to do with your computing, and then from that you can figure which processor performs the best at that task and that one will be "the fastest" for you.
