Default Intel feeling the heat from AMD

Intel Corp. Chief Executive Officer Paul Otellini may cut at least 10,000 jobs next week, or about 10 percent of the chipmaker's work force, in his efforts to slash $1 billion in costs this year

I use both on a daily basis... My AMD system blows the Intel system off it's feet...

Intel chips get confused when too many questions are asked...

I'm confused. With the new "Core 2 Duo" released, wouldn't Intel be making the big bucks?

Intel flooded the market with P4 and Celeron chips to make room for C2D... but everyone bought the cheap systems built on the cheap P4/Celeron deal.

Sort bit themselves on the backside.

I agree, it's tidal in nature. I prefer AMD as a company, but I have, do, and will use Intel products if they warrant the epxerience.
