spent the closing months of 1999 at each other's throats in
both price and performance, you might have thought early 2000
would bring a pause in the iridescent conflict between the two
chip giants. No such luck. AMD and Intel have been constantly
trying to out do each other in the CPU stakes, one day Intels
ahead and the next AMD are. AMD holds on by keeping prices suppressed
and churning chips out faster, while Intel advance their current
chipsets and refine their technologies while keeping prices
this is all rather useful for you and I, the consumers, because
we get all the benefits as the giants rage war above. Just like
two children fighting to get hold of a sack of sweets over an
Ant hill, then suddenly the sack breaks and the sweets come
tumbling down and into the open arms of the ants below. Yet
perhaps in among this surge of technology spouting we have forgotten
just what the true differences between Intel and AMD are.
all the same to me
the casual consumer now having more technology at lower prices
on offer to them, we are still just as confused as we were before
as to which is better. So Speedy 3D decided to take a far less
technical look at the differences between AMD and Intel, avoiding
the technical jargon and hitting strait at the core concerns.
What are the core concerns? Simply, Speed, Cost, Stability,
Compatibility and Choices/Options.
took a look at what both AMD and Intel had on offer and sighted
all of the above as important aspects in our investigation to
find out just who has the best bit of everything.
