AMD vs Intel - here's the hammer blow

PCA magazine has put AMD and Intel 's new processors to the test, and there's one clear winner. Intel's dominance is total in every area: value for money, performance per watt and all-out speed. Even the Core 2 Quad Q6600 – now only about $300 – still outperforms the Phenom 9500 in PCA's benchmarks.

What the hell happened to the supremacy of AMD and the x64 processors, their better performance and efficiency in everything including cost and energy? Intel rules now, and I don't see how AMD can recover.

I hope they do or we are all stuck with a single CPU maker for computers. No more price wars and we could eventually end up with another Pentium 4.

Intel was never good, and amd is the only choice unless you want to pay more for something that has 4x the power that you can get in a cheap amd processor.

Intel has been very superior for a while now. AMD isn't worth crap anymore.

Lmao didn't the article just said that an outdated CPU from Intel beat AMD's new top of the line.

You can't just compare one processor to another and thereby determine that one company is better than another. You have to compare the whole processor lines. AMD might have more focus on the mid-range or low-end processors than Intel and this would show nothing of it. This is about high-end processors and the article is extremely arrogant to assume that Intel is "dominating" AMD because they have more market share and their high-end processors are better. I want a comparison of the mid-level and entry-line processors too before anyone gets decapitated. Don't get me wrong btw, I have a Pentium 4 (the infamous Prescott) in my computer, but I don't want to worship a single processor company.

I think intel has more money, and if so, more money to invest in better technology and research. I'm making this assumption because I had heard of intel a long time ago, but hadn't heard of AMD until after the millennium.

Nothing like some Intel vs. AMD fanboys to break the MS/Sony/Nintendo fanboy monotony of N4G.

How about some AMD/ATI vs. Nvidia next?

Gone are the days when AMD "does more per clock cycle" processors were considered superior.

*Watches as Intel runs over AMD with an asphalt steamroller, backs up, and then runs over them again*
