We have already got used to the fact that AMD processors with K8 micro-architecture defeat their competitors from Intel in gaming applications. Core Duo at its nominal frequencies cannot change the situation. However, when we overclock it, the picture gets totally different in no time. 3.0GHz Intel Core Duo gets far ahead of Athlon 64 FX-60 in most 3D games. And even if we overclock the AMD processor, the situation will hardly change. Athlon 64 FX-60 works at the top of its frequency potential and is very unlikely to cope with even 10% frequency increase above the nominal. But even a 10% performance gain will not help Athlon 64 FX-60 to regain its leadership in games.
