    I have been a Computer Tech since '96 & have worked on both AMD & Intel systems, but my money goes to AMD. Clock speed means nothing if you have a better architecture. Based on what I have seen on pricewatch.com AMD is about $30 cheaper than the equivalent Intel CPU. Based on bench marks that have been posted on tomshardware.com & hardocp.com AMD performs better than "faster" Intels. This is not the first time performace equivalent IDs have been used. NEVER TRUST A SALESMAN!

    Amd vs. Intel

    Its literally a crusade to see who can have the "Fastest" cpu. Amd...is currently pushing the limits on "floating point" type applications,which the new architecture was made for. But what is intel doing. I belive all they are worried about is impressing the People who buy a premade system and only know what actually clock speed means.

    Many a people are staring to realize that the amd is a "faster" chip in performance due to the design but wont be-able to compete with Intels "Newbie" crowd.

    Just my thoughts
