    Ok, I've looked around bit and I can't seem to find any site that has used a 64bit OS w/a 64-bit app to bench the Athlon.

    It's would be especailly nice if some would also compare it to the 32-bit version running the benches both on the Athlon64 and a P4.

    Anyways, anyone know of any half decent reviews out there with 64-bit benchmarking?

    Depends on the benchmark.

    For current 32 bit 3D apps like 3DMark2001, its a bit slower in a 64 environment. This is with Windows Server 2003 64 bit and 64 bit ATI Drivers. Wether this will change or not in the future I don't know.

    FX5900 - 3DMark2001 [20,566] - 3DMark2003 [7,281] - Aquamark3 [56,694]
    Ti4400 - 3DMark2001 [16,028]

    AMD really jumped the gun with 64-bit processin' so software has a bit of catchin' up to do. Ya'll just have to be patient atm.

    The reason I ask is I plan on building a system late January / early Feb. and I'm trying to decide between a P4 C, either 2.4, 2.6, posssible 2.8, or an Athlon64 3000 all currently cost around the $200USD mark.

    So I was looking for reviews with benchmarks to help me decide.

    I'll be using some high end 3D apps such as Maya or XSI both of which I believe have 64 versions out. (I think)

    And of course Games

    And perhaps some encoding.

    The encoding part naturally points to a P4, but I was trying to find out if the 64-bit has/will even things out a bit.

    I'll also bedoing tons of multitasking but I don't think there is a real difference between the two in that area.

    P.S. Sorry if there are spelling mistakes but I just nuked my HD and I haven't reinstalled word.

    P.S.S. I should make that my sig. :D
