Talking What will Intel do when......

Ok, since you all know it's the end of "the gigahertz war", and both Intel is gonna start focusing more on architecture than frequency (eg. 3.8GHZ intel is crap, and the 2.8 and 3.2GHZ are outperforming it) I wonder how are they gonna convince the ppl, who are still looking at "GHZ", that "this chip is better than that". AMD is alredy naming them 3200+ for example, but what's intel gonna do?

Samsung QX410 notebook <-- lol, I'm always on the go these days :(

Start using suffixes like "GTO" and "RS" to make it sound cool!

that is what I've always thought, Intel is backed into a corner right now and although their newer Pentium M architechture is good, it opens to market more to AMD since people will (hopefully) start to realize there are more to cores than clockspeeds

They have already started a solution for such a thing. THey use 3-number codes to describe their CPUs rather than just using GHz.

When it comes to market share, AMD can't even hold the pencil that Intel writes with. The market is divided like 80% intel - 20% AMD. Regardless of what we all think of AMD's 64 processors. Until AMD wins it's case in court. This will remain the sad truth.

Intel has some damn good products and AMD has some damn good products. But, one of these companies has much larger pockets. Can you guess which one?
