Well, its good to see that you are writing articles again Sander. We had a long dry spell.

It seems that Intel is making one mistake after another.

One thing...
Does this mean that Dell will have a hard time making their middle of the road $700 PC's? Or will they simply cram a Celeron in them and claim that they're just as good?

I preferred Intel better then AMD -I used to have Athlon 64 3000 and it keep crashing or the programs frozen, I guessed they arenít comparable, and end up P4 2GHz and hasnít given me any problem yet.

Currently im on my intel system and new Rigs (AMD) off especially for gaming. I game mostly with this system since it supports 9800XT 1GB Corsair XMS, basically its the computer thats on all the time so why not use it. Other rig is far superior but ive gotten use to this Intel.

Both are good and I doubt crashing is the result of the AMD chipset.

I wouldn't buy or build any system other than an AMD.
Intel is overpriced and a great under achiever as far as
I'm concerned. Too much money spent on advertising and
not enough on their products. AMD has a very far superior product.

I used A P3 500, then p4 1.3 w.rdram but when I upgraded to a Amd system I saw why their product is superiour. The price is lower but performance is identical if not better. Now I have a Semptron 3100 @ 2.1ghz, 512 OCZ Premier DDR400, Radeon 9800 Pro This system I bet will beat any 3.0ghz p4 rig....its time everyoen sees the real superiour product....time to amd everyone

The last time I had an Intel chip in my personal system, was a P90. I've had AMD ever since and have yet to be disappointed. If you are on a budget (like me) you have to consider AMD. Bang for the buck is not a known tern in the Intel camp.

I use both Intel and AMD processors and have found each to be powerful in its own arena. AMD chips, however, have surged ahead in most statistics and benchmarks at the moment and so I'm totally pro Athlon 64. Although I like the Athlon 64 I'd like to see Intel put out a competitive and powerful CPU in the near future...we've had the Pentium IV for too long now!

hey Mr CustompcCases, i suggest u back off with the insults to other members, no one is a dumb ass on here and how u just acted u proved to be one, perhaps u need to reread the Guide at the top of every post you make and also the FUP, cause if u dont start following rules you are gonna Get Permantely banned from this website, plus for those who start bashing one another if they have intel or AMD will also get a little notice from the moderators around here cause ur trying to start another "vs topic". just remember be nice cause if u dont u will receive some major punishment for ur bad demeanor. Where does it state anywhere in the title with the phrase Intel vs AMD/AMD vs Intel!?!?!?

Intel should really stop it with the Socket Changes, i means**t Socket 370 didnt last that long nor did SOcket 478 or 423, Intel really needs to replan their cpu architecture.

Im by no means anti-intel, however I have being using Athlon for awhile now. They've always been cheaper for the peformance (at least in the UK) but a couple of years ago were marketed as being slightly less reliable than Intels. that has kinda been true in my experience, but with the release of the Athlon 64 i can no longer say that, my new computer has never ever crashed (i kid you not) or forced itself into a position where it needs a reboot, although of course programs do occasionally.

I really hope intel get back up to speed, because even if your a diehard athlon fan, without intel they are more or less going to have a monopoly and the prices will shoot back up - low prices rely on competition!

Alright so not a dumbass, just seriously confused and misinformed.

Never tried to turn it into a intel vrs. amd, no idea where you are going with that but have fun ;)

Anyone who says 1 platform is some how not as stable as another has no idea what they are talking about. Honestly I canít think of a more polite way to say it, either you know what you are talking about or you donít. People claiming amd is less stable donít.

The only thing that can differentiate 2 systems is the motherboard. There are crappy mobos from both camps. In case you are not properly informed; both platforms can be equally unstable/stable.

That is taking into account that both systems have the same system components as possible. Past that, much of the problems arise from novice computer builders (or users for that matter) that really have no idea what they are doing.

Airman,

Shut it up. The initial post was poorly written and entirely senseless. The way I (and I assume other readers) read the discussion, the poster was labeled "dumbass" because of his misunderstanding of the subject and his poor use of the english language. For you to respond in the way in which you did, you have NOW planted the seed for another "vs." conversation. The previous comments made no mention of such a discussion.

Then again, what can I expect from someone who uses a Thermaltake fan and a "VGA Silencer".

Now to the subject at hand...

Whether you are looking for a low-end Celeron/AthlonXP or a high performing 3.0GHz+ P4/Athlon 64 or in the market for a Xeon/Opteron server, at any given price point AMD has a chip to outperform Intel's offerings.

AMD do run a little hotter than Intel but get a better cooling solution and then your pc wont crash.
