Intel used to dominate the market in workstation processors(xeons). But the xeon dual cores are a flop. It was a tight race between intel and amd for a while now. AMD used to triumph the desktop world and Intel used to triumph the workstation world. The best deals and performance are amd dual cores desktop(athlons) and dual core workstation\servers (opterons).

I used to be an intel guy too. Key words....used to...

Im an AMD guy too but, If AMD is soooo much better than intel than why is there so many sold. now I understand that there are people who think that CPU= the power cord but there are still so many being sold than why would anyone buy it?

Because many of the uneducated people who don't do research before buying a computer go with intel because its better known

Because Intel is a HUGE company. They sell their processors because of their clock speed. Uneducated people think that clock speed is all there is to it.

Um...WHAT?! The 4800+ is performs like a Pentium-D 4.0Ghz. Integrated Mem controlled doesn't give it .8Ghz on the P-D.
