This just seems like a desperate attempt by Intel to gain some sort of edge by rushing out of the gate a few seconds before AMD.
As I've said, this Pentium comes out tomorow, April 18. AMD is releasing a number of Opteron dualies on April 21. Three days is not a lot of time by any means. Also, if you wanted to get really technical, AMD will follow up with their desktop dualies in June. Intel will not have their Xeon dualies until 2006.
But either way, it's not about who's first, it all comes down to performance. I would rather wait a month for a better processor than have some absolute garbage, slapped together at the last second, chip.
