    Intel’s decision to transform dual-core processors into an alternative affordable to all users is not only a victory against AMD, but also the beginning
    of a new dawn in PC technology.

    Although it will take long before users will be able to switch to dual-core processors (Intel estimates that 2006 is the year when dual-core processors will represent an important segment of the market), this process is inevitable.

    Moreover, Intel has succeeded in launching dual-core processors at half the prices proposed by the competition.

    The three models launched: Pentium D 820 at 2.8GHz, Pentium D 830 at 3.0GHz and Pentium D 840 at 3.2GHz will have prices of 241, 316 and 530 dollars in shipments of 1000 units. The “slowest” AMD Athlon X2 (2.2 GHz 4200+) is priced at $537. You do the math....

    How do you like that AMD Cheese Munchers?

    Hello!

    Actually both AMD and Intel must be wetting their pants by now due to the rescent threat of IBM that is taking over the consoll market and also has the superchip Cell for the next PS3. Since Cell is PPC based it is quite possible that sometimes next year we will see a new processor for Macs. A modified G5 for base maybe around 3.5 GHz and on top of that as replacement for Altivec a Cell chip for the graphic. That would be a fantastic supercomputer and if that would to happen Apple would take a gigant leap and go far ahead of the PC market as far as performance is concerned!!.


    Sincerely Joakim Agren!

    What? Do you think AMD is just gonna take it laying down and go outta business. Give it a month a they'll be releasing their own competitive product.

    what Skizo said, they'll probably even give away free sandwiches, I don't see Intel giving away free sandwiches.

    The AMD Athlon64 X2 is more equivalent to Intel's 840EE chip, the price of which is astronomical (well over $1000).

    The AMD Athlon64 X2 4200+ is effectively a 3500+ with a second core while the Intel Pentium D 840 is effectively a P4 3.2GHz with a second core, and the 3500+ eats the P4 3.2GHz.

    At the moment, Intel can't even make a chip to compete with AMD's top end dual core processors.

    Pass the cheese.

    Political correctness is based on the principle that it's possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.
