AMD vs Intel: the price war

Intel's Pentium 4 is now scheduled for launch at the end of November in 1.4 and 1.5GHz guises. The entry level P4 should debut at 1.4Ghz, priced at $652, while the premium part will ship at 1.5Ghz and $827. It's intriguing that our original intelligence pointed at a launch at 1.3 and 1.4GHz, costing $635 and $805 respectively. For the 1.4GHz part to have been reduced by $150 before it ever hit the shelves could be seen as an indication of the perceived level of the AMD price/performance threat. ®

AMD the new OEM price list, due to take effect from 9 October: AMD may be having second thoughts (over timing, as opposed to pricing). And who could blame the company for making hay, while Intel don't shine. An 850MHz Athlon drops by more than 50 per cent from around $350 to $165, while the little Duron 600 moves from $79 to $53. Other revised prices include Athlon 700, 750 and 800MHz at $116, $130 and $149 respectively.

The AMD vs Intel war continues, and'll be very interesting to see whether AMD will manage to get an even greater percentage of the cpu market. Dont forget the recent glitch with the 1.13-GHz Pentium III processor, for example, that forced Intel to recall the processor...

AMD vs Intel: the price war

Who the cares about how long start up takes? I know I dont and if you really think about why would you need 1.5 ghz?Im sure non of you freaks need that much, maybe the most you have clocked your comp up to is possably 600mhz... I dont know any programs that need more than 500mhz, you ppl are blind fools to the media... and if you think im just jelious im not. I have a 900mhz AMD 32 meg vid card and a 200mhz FSB... ill be happy with that for the next 4 years...

AMD vs Intel: the price war

All you intel loosers are soo wrong about AMD. It has been proven that the AMD chip is the fastest!!!!! INTEL PAYS MAGAZINES SUCH AS PC USER PC AUTHORITY, PC WORLD ETC TO SAY IN THE REVEIWS THAT THE INTEL CHIP IS FASTER THEN THE AMD CHIP!!!!!!!! THEY CANT HACK LOOSING SO THEY HAVE TO PAY PEOPLE TO SAY GOOD STUFF ABOUT THEIR SCABBY INTEL CHIPS!!!!I have built up an Intel p3 667 and compared it to out AMD k6-3/450 and you couldn't tell the difference.... so which chip is faster???????? AMD OF COURSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!INTEL SUX BAD!!!!!!!! AMD RULZ!!!!!!!!!

AMD RULES!!!!!!!! its not fair to compare a ****ing 1.5 ghz to a 800 athlon.well here is the official statement[---==== A M D R U L E S! I N T E L S U C K S ! ====---]oh dear looks like i just stamped on the fire of u pentium freaks!MWHAHAHAHAHAHA>>>-----( (( >

"why don't you guys just try intel if using amd and try amd if using intel, that gonna judge well on which is the best "Cuz I don't feel like wasting the money. You got some you don't need? Send it to me, and I'll put it to good use.

AMD is a stupid donkey raiping shit eating bonner biting **** master and intel is a cool ass shit so all of you dumb asses get a ****ing life what the **** is your ****ing problem Intel vs Amd my ass!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11

AMD vs Intel: the price war

I love AMD!!!They are FAST, perform better than Pentiums, and better yet they are cost much much less. Faster,Cheaper,Better. And if you care about your privacy on the net, AMDs don't have a traceable built in serial number that acts as a built in cookie.That feature is what made me Hate Intel Chips.

AMD vs Intel: the price war

Ashish you are a ****ing moron, who give a shit how fast they are. All you Intel losers are trendy ass morons and are contributing to Intel's ****ing monopoly. They are too damn expensive and are not worth the damn money. They had to recall for hell's sake.

AMD vs Intel: the price war

To be honest, i've tried them both and the athlon beats the pentium III easily. I ran a system benchmark on two computers, each using AMD and Intel's processors (550 mhz, 663 mhz respectivly). And the Athlon was more then 20% faster.P.S. Intel is full of lies anyway, how can a processor make the internet better? It's the modem, dammit, the modem!!!

AMD vs Intel: the price war

I tried a AMD DURON 700 MHz and it equals the fukin PENTIUM III 700....What the ****!!! The duron is a celeron-class processor and it beats an PIII!!! Well by the time, im very disapointed of the P3 So amd rules!(PS:I was planning buying a new computer and i was supposed to buy an PIII 800. With that money I can buy a AMD ATHLON T-Bird 900 for the same ****IN PRICE!!! **** YOU INTEL!!)

AMD vs Intel: the price war

Yo whoever is agaist AMD is lame! Probably they have Intel and they are ashame of it what they paid for. AMD is wayyyy... faster and plus wayyyyy.. cheaper! for a Pentium 3 650 I can get AMD Athlon 800 for the same price and oh what do you see wayyyy... faster process! You Intel fools are stupid cause you know what it will just be an another Cyrix ahahah!!=INTEL SUCKS= -=AMD KICK ASS=-

AMD vs Intel: the price war

Ademas todos ustedes en realidad no notarian la diferencia entre los procesadores del mismo nivel de AMD e INTEL asi que vayanse por lo mas barato que es AMD. Para mi AMD teniendo pocos años es una super compañia ya que aparte de alcanzar en tecnologia a INTEL ya hasta abarato el mercado AMD RULES THE NNEEWW WORLD

AMD vs Intel: the price war

Me vale madre que saquen un procesador pentium IV, para mi gusto vale pura chingada, de hecho si comparas los procesadores amd y pentium veras que son mas rapidos los amd, y mas baratos!!!!!!!!!!!, que chingados estan buscando,¿marca?, dejenme decirles que si son realmente inteligentes optaran por los amd y no por esa mierda de monopolio que nos hacen menos al ensartarnos unos putos procesadores que valen madre asi que si decidiste comprar un procesador y prefieres irte por lo comercial al comprar una pentium!!! dejame decirte que E R E S U N P E N D E J O ! ! ! ! ! ! !

AMD vs Intel: the price war

AMD Athlon and AMD Duron has a 200mhz system bus versus a p3 133. Intel has met it's match because the Athlon as a higher and more stable floating point balace than a P3. You nned that to play 3d games. if you still don't under stand than you don't desire to argue against me. AMD is the best for now only time will tell. P4 only equals the Athlon not surpass it.
