    Are there any other processers that meet with today's standards for gaming, mutimedia etc. That are NOT made by companies called Intel or Advanced Micro Devices?

    further down the page someone was discussing this. Not sure what the topic was, Maybe AMD vs Intel?

    Cyrix is one I know of but I don't think it rates very high.

    Cyrix processors, made by VIA, are an absolute joke.


    There are no other real alterantives for x86-based computers, other than AMD and Intel.

    As previously stated, Cyrix makes processors, but they are a joke,
    or at least they did, (don't hold me to this) but I had heard they went belly up.

    And Motorola makes processors as well, but they are PowerPC and work with the Apple Macs.
    but they Macs are good systems for multimedia, graphics, and whatnots, but as far as gaming, don't expect much, Macs are not Gaming Systems.
