Intel has been shipping dual core [email protected] 3 ghz for nearly a year, and have started shipping the 8 core xeons as well. thsi isn't a "battle" its a game of catchup.

Previously I wasn't a big intel fan but I must admit, their multi-core chips are very impressive.

i have always been an AMD fan. i am only running a single core processor at the moment, BUT it runs smooth and yet i have other computers in my house which are brothers etc and i keep having problems with them etc.

i spose i am a little biased towards AMD, but if i am proven wrong and that Intel have finally got there ASS into gear! then well maybe i will prefer Intel in future :)

Intel's Dual Core processors are at the moment beating AMD's processors by a mile. Also you can overclock the Intel Dual Core processors up to 4GHz without producing too much heat. Also, the Cell is not that great and is gonna be outdated in like a year's time. Dual and Quad cores are coming and are getting cheaper.

As for now, buy an Intel Dual Core, its the best processor out there at the moment and its great for overclocking.
