AMD and Intel are the two big cheeses in the computing world.
For those of you who don't know the differences:
- An AMD Athlon XP is much cheaper than an equivalent Intel P4.
- The Intel P4 has the fastest available desktop processor - currently at 3.06GHz, I think
- Intel chips are slightly less prone to overheating (this only affects overclockers)
- AMD-compatible motherboards tend to be cheaper than Intel-compatible ones.
So if you've got money to burn, go with P4.
The AMD Athlon XP is much better value for money, though.
Anyone know any different?
