Thanks Ken, for the benchmarks.
X1600 in the Z96j vs 7600 in the Z92T
The X1600 has a few features graphic related that are not in the 7600.
The Pixel Shader 2 (3DMark05) shows both cards to perform equally.
The Pixel Shader 3 (3DMark06) as expected Nvidia should win this, since their PS3 technology is superior to ATI, but this difference of 500 marks at stocks may only make marginable differences.
The Yonah Vs Taylor, Yonah wins overall, but Taylor has 64bit and many like AMD
Merom vs Taylor, so far Merom shows little improvements over Yonah, thus making Merom better than Taylor, but still people like AMD.
Batterylife....hmm, we would need someone to compare the Z96j and Z92T in battery life and see what happens, generally AMD has slightly lower batterylife but we'll see.
Once Again Intel combined with ATI or Nvidia is a winner, but many will still go for AMD with Nvidia for maximum Linux benefits and the fact that Taylor is available sooner than Merom.
