Report a correction
Much newer manufacturing process 22 nm vs 350 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Much higher clock speed 3 GHz vs 0.09 GHz More than 33.2x higher clock speed
Much better overclocked clock speed (Air) 4.47 GHz vs 0.09 GHz Around 49.8x better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Has a NX bit Yes vs No Somewhat common; Prevents a common class of security exploits
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 4.6 GHz vs 0.09 GHz More than 51x better overclocked clock speed (Water)

Hmmm... the i7-5960x has the NX bit. That might just tip the scales in its favour.
That's actually a decent point
Shit humour.
ARE YOU IDIOTS HOW CAN YOU COMPARE I7 WITH AMD K5 PR90 FROM 1996.OFC the amd k5 pr90 wins for easy the i7
LOL, they should have at least run some sort of benchmark with it, haha
I had one too back in the day, ran without a cooler!
0.09 GHZ beast
I still have one of those (AMD K5 PR75) in my drawer :) It comes from my first PC. Anyway it's pretty funny to see one of it siblings compared to one of today's monsters. :)
Wow, the AMD smoked the i7 by miles!
Ah... kids these days, thinking that the history of the processor started with Core i7 at gazillions of gigahertz. So don't get your diapers up in a bunch ;). It's an AMD K5 - from the Pentium era (P5, first generation, 1996) - at 90MHz (PR stands for Performance Rating) and built on a 0.35 micron process. This translates to 350nm. http://www.anandtech.com/show/40
its clear that the AMD K5 PR90 is best than the i7 :PP it should run all games at hight at -100 fps
It might be slower but there are a whole host of games that will run on the K5 PR90 that won't on the i7,
You're obviously an idiot...
But CpuBoss messed it all up...
It's the CPU from 1996...get real people x( ....
I never even herd of the AMD K5 PR90 lol
I didn't even know that 350nm and 0.09GHz processor is real :o
