Intel Core Duo & The AOpen i975Xa-YDG

Anandtech has an interesting article posted detailing the performance of Intel's Core Duo mobile processor when installed on AOpen's i975Xa-YDG desktop motherboard. When you see the performance of this platform, you'll likely be very impressed.  Especially when it's overclocked to 2.8GHz...

"If our test results are a true indication of the performance potential of the upcoming Conroe and Merom processors, then we foresee a sizable interest within the AMD community for taking another look at Intel based products in the near future. The Conroe/Merom processors should realize a performance improvement of around 15% above the current AMD lineup. Johan recently finished an excellent overview of the Core architecture and a comparison to the current AMD offerings in his Intel Core versus AMD K8 article."
