@antilycus: You have no clue what you're talking about. Intel does make a better chip, AMD acknowledges that. The Intel chip beats it in performance, power consumption, speeds nearly all fronts. The only area that it loses is price. That's why AMD has moved it production focus to other area's such as integrated all in one chip solutions like the XBONE and PS4, leveraging it's ATI acquired graphics know how. They know they can't compete in the desktop processor market anymore. Intel has a good stronghold on that now. And yes, my first AMD was a K6II 333mhz, i loved that processor, back when they could really compete with intel.
