both chip makers come out equal, had this been one or two years
hence then the situation would have been very different. Intel
would be far in the lead with AMD fumbling behind; just shows
how times can change. Read our comments and see whether you
agree with them or not, to help you, here's a summary:
Speed - Equal (Both are equal if you consider all the factors).
2) Cost - AMD (Has always been better priced).
3) Stability - AMD (Surprisingly AMD is more stable than
4) Compatibility - Intel (Do we even need to say anything
5) Choices/Options - Intel (Always ahead, no arguments
may or may not agree but you can't deny that our findings are
fairly conclusive on this matter. Sure some of you may have
found something a different way but then not everybody is the
same. We just found the majority agreed with ours. Thanks to
Mike, Chris, Russel.B, Tom and Sander for helping us investigate
hope you enjoyed the last of our editorials on anything related
to the current generation of CPUs, please remember that an editorial
is one or several peoples personal views and not any kind of
'official' or 'political' statement. Take what we say with a
pinch of salt because it's just for fun.
