    I'm sure some Intel fanboys would say AMD don't know their CPU's from hole in the ground!

    I am no AMD fanboy, but AMD serve their purpose of supplying CPU's to those who know no better or can't afford the Intel ones.

    Probably nothing, they work at least.
    My preference is Intel and Xeon if I could afford it.

    AMD vs Intel is like the Mac vs PC based argument that has been around for years, both have good and bad points and everyone has their opinion.

    You may have forgotten to mention that some people do not want or need an Intel CPU for whatever reason.

    AMD Vs Intel is nothing like and has never been anything like the PC Vs Mac debate.

    Come on !

    Until AMD came along Intel had the market all to itself and charged well over a thousand dollars per CPU. Then AMD came out and Intel dropped their prices.

    So I always buy AMD on principal !

    Don't forget Cyrix. They put the cheap in ultra cheap when they were around.

    Just a damn shame AMD weren't able to turn having a far superior product for so many years into real world market share.

    where are they now?
