AMD and Intel Announce Hot Rods

Both AMD and Intel have been involved in a fierce battle for processor supremacy. This time however, they decided to push things even further. Today both companies announced their fastest, smallest ever chips, AMD's XP 2000+ and Intel's Pentium 4 2.2 GHz.
AMD will be looking to maintain their current good run, as far as sales are concerned, which was caused partly by Pentium 4 shortages.

Systems featuring the AMD Athlon XP processor 2000+ are expected to be immediately available from Compaq in the U.S. Other top-tier manufacturers, including Hewlett-Packard Company and MicronPC, LLC in the U.S., and NEC-CI in Europe have already agreed to distribute the chip.

Intel's new chip will be the first in the Pentium 4 range to feature a 0.13 micron design which will give the company precious pricing flexibility, since production for such chips is very cost efficient.

There is no certain way of telling which chip will prevail. In many ways the outcome depends on AMD's ability to convince both consumers and suppliers that their lower clock speed (the XP 2000+ runs at 1.664 GHz)does not mean lower performance.

In order to convince the public that this is the case, AMD have released a comprehensive series of benchmark tests comparing the Athlon XP 2000+ with Intel's Pentium 4 2Ghz. These tests show that AMD's chip is in many ways superior to Intel's 2 GHz offering. Will this be the case with the 2.2 GHz chip? Stay tuned for a comparison of the XP 2000+ with the Pentium 4 2.2 GHz.

I think that all the people who have AMD's are just poor bcos who cares about speed if it keeps locking up and overheating you have to have a fan the size of a house to keep them cool.I have a P4 1.4ghz and it has all the power I need for now atleast.

Intel is alright but AMD is still better. Intel sells good processors but rip of the public off at the same time. AMD sells even better processors for much less. And if all you can say is AMD is shit and AMD sucks your not Intelligent enough to have a discussion about computers. so get the f**k out and stop bothering people

I don't know why all of you told AMD s**k. Did you have another word?AMD is only good in Game.Intel is good in Multimedia.Who told Intel s**k. That person is s**k too. Because he's only a kids gamer and he don't know nothing about processor. Go to school and learn.

As we all know P4 has a much better cooling system and still is and will be the most good looking chip out there. AMD ...yes u guessed it is still good for using as toliet paper. SO LIKE BILL GATES QUOTED BURN IN HELL AMD.....BURN BURN BURN

First of all the Heat tells the true power of the AMD's, and second of all if your fan would break, that would be one crappy fan that you have for it. I have tested my AMD thunderbird 1.0Ghz against the oposer Intels P4s, 1.5Ghz and the best ratings come from the AMD processor. P4s don't get hot? P4s don't get hot because of its piece of crap architecture. Heat mean power it this case. If your processor is burning out consider using a real heatsink fan, not one that came with a 486 computer. AMD suggests the different type of fans you should use with each certain processor, maybe you ought to obide by that regulation, and you won't have a problem with AMDs. Next thing is Bill Gates kisses a**. Windows sucks and always will suck. Thats why im a Linux guru. No blue screen of death, No freezing. Thats all i have to say about Windows vs. Linux. If someone would give me a P4 chip I would go to a pond and see how many skips i can get out of that piece of crap.

hoho, i think many of intel supporter dont really know what is the best for their pc, you should look for experiment done to amd and intel cpu at any website like tomshardware etc(or make your own experiment!!). after that make your decision carefully. only man who is 'computer blind' will say amd suck. learn more plss....

please... all you AMD lovin losers need to take a look at the REAL performance..gay tests don't prove the real power of new p4 chips.. they divide processing into three sections, so they process three things at a time.. benchmark programs jam themselves into one pipe.. which is very inaccurate a test.. AMD is a better gamer, possibly.. but if you want to download and listen to music while playing that game.. go intel.. by the way.. AMD's.. check your heatsinks now.. that fan even slows for a few seconds and its all gone!

I agree with much of what Strador says, especially about the need for a carefully chosen heatsink/fan and how much better Linux is than any version of Windoze. I do not agree with what s/he said s/he would do if someone gave him a P4 chip; I would not take it to a pond, I would take it to a pawn (shop)!That said, I also agree with the several people who reccomend going to a site like Tom's Hardware Guide [see link below] and seeing what the results of real testing are. For my money, I feel I can get more performance for less money from AMD. (Besides, even if the performance were equal, who doesn't want to save money?!) Check out [url removed] and look for the "CPU Guide".Currently, (as of Jan2002,) the link to the latest comparison is: [url removed] but I don't know if that will change or not.

Intel are ok, but amd is better. If you looked at the speed difference and quility you will know that amd is better in all that and the price is low to. All you have to do is get a GOOD heat sink, its funny when i see people try installing CPU and they dont have a clue on how to install them properly, and if you dont have a good cooling fan, ya you are going to run in to some problems, it goes for all cpus and if the cpu and if you try overclocking the cpu its you own fault that your computer dies. Thus making AMD Athlons the fastests on the market. If you looked tested the Chips you would even know that the amd athlon 1.5 is faster then the Intel 4 2Ghz.

man the time has come for intel to pss off AMD 64 fx 3.2 gig kills pentium crap arss pentium extreme garbage they should call it the market has spoken pentium no more any way AMD has been in america since 1967 were they have experiance unlike intel since 1980 bye bye intel now piss off for good Amd does everything better and cheaper and good quality then intell so much for intel"s crappy hyperthreading bullshit thats all i can say. ah but AmD"s tri speed really works thanks amd from all the hackers of the world thanks from hacker deagnas

AMD and Intel Announce Hot Rods

AMD pls give me i job at your company its the best i wership you company and iam i good fan pentium extreme a nother piece of garbage to keep pentium on the make secret reports say pentuim has got nothing left there dieing and wont be around by 2016 the terminated me on the other hand think AMD there always have somthing up there sleeve and they have see the markets call to AMD not pentium se ya pentuim any way amd contact me at deagnas@ayhoo.com.au thanks guys ps, pentuim extreme pentium joke AMD64fx all they way man leading us too the future,thanks too all amd surporters tell the pentium fans too piss off, ha there it is pentium and pentium fans< froms DEAGNAS,,AMD RULES TOO TRUE TOO ALL AMD FANS<AND HACKERS UNITED
