I've ordered myself an Acer Ferrari 4005 laptop. It arrives tomorrow
morning ... but, like a kid on christmas eve, I am getting well excited
Can anyone point me in the direction of a benchmarking test (that gives
it straight), as to how the performance of A64s and Turions compares. My
desktop is an A64 3500, whilst the laptop is a Turion ML-37.
Re: Turion 64 vs Athlon 64
Sorry, my bad. I just remembered that the Turion has the SSE3
instructions and the A64 does not. The SETI client is only optimized for
SSE2 and Athlon64. So you would use the same client on both machines.
I would guess that the higher clock speed would be the fastest, but I
don't know how the Turion's 1MB of L2 cache would affect it.
BTW, nice looking machine.
