AMD bangs for the buck and slightly off boring mainstream.

AMD, cheaper and faster for most applications per MHz, or GHz.

I buy Intel and only Intel when i upgrade my computers.

dont care about cost, dont care about performance, aslong as it does what i need and is well supported.

Best wishes

I have always had intel myself. But I built my sis a Athlon 1400 the other week, and I was actually very surprised with it.

My next PC will be a AMD, but my server will stay intel.. (yes I have a few computers)

well ferrari use AMD and ferrari is the fastest so that must mean AMD is the fastest right???

must be why jag wasn't winning when with HP the last couple of seasons hehehe

seriouslly though comparing similarly clocked processors the AMD versions are faster and cheaper than the Intel versions and ive never seen a problem with them either

Go the rat !!!!

I saw a very intersting article on tomshardware.com about the relative merits of AMD and Intel, and there wasn't a lot between them except for their inbuild thermal protection, basically with the new AMD processors, if you heat sink falls off or similar say good bye to your processor, in about 1~2 seconds smoke starts coming off and the processor dies. With the Intel processors they have inbuilt thermal protection and cut processing speed if the heat sink fails

Run Forrest , Run.......

Well the new XP range has either Thermal shutdown or throttle as well, is faster at the equivalent speed, is about 1/2-1/3 the price and has better motherboards that aren't dependant on rdram for good performance.

The only time I would bu a p4 was if it came with a new system and I got a good deal on it whihc is possible sometimes.

I have nevber come across ANY software that didn't work as well on either PII/4 and Athlon/XP that old arguement from the days of the K6 doesn't hold any water.

I have AMD for the first time, got it because it was considered better than Intel by everyone I talked too.

I did notice that the 2.2 intel is now regarded as a better performing chip to the 1900+ in one pc review mag! Think the intel prices have come down to match amd too but not sure.
