Thats completely untrue. AMD does not always offer the best price to performance curve, even if you don't overclcock
For example, E2200 cost $10 cheaper on newegg than 5000+. And according to this review
they perform on par on average
I'm not denying that AMD does offer a good price to performance. But they are not always better than Intel even if you don't overclock
Also, E2220 which have 200MHz higher clock speed than E2200 is going to come out very soon (either this week or the next week). And its pricing should be the same as the current E2200. In other words, Intel is getting much better at the budget market month after a month.
