It's been about 6 months since our last big desktop processor review (July '05: Battle of the High-End CPUs), but here we are at another big release from both Intel and AMD. In this review we'll be taking a look at the new big dogs from both companies. This time they're laying it all down and going for the highest clocked dual-core processors they can pump out.



On the Intel side we have the new Intel Pentium Extreme Edition 955 with a new chipset, the Intel 975X Express. From AMD we have a new top-of-the-line Athlon 64 FX processor, the Athlon 64 FX-60. There's nothing new on the chipset front for AMD this time around. First we'll share the background on these new processors and then take a look at Intel's new chipset. Is AMD still top dog in the processor battle? We'll see.
