    With Intel's rosy prospects and all with their new P4c, Prescott, and teja models coming out, isn't AMD in some serious doodoo? Am I like wrong or what. I think that IBM was like going to merge with AMD a while back? what is going on here? Even though I own an Intel product I don't want to see AMD go down the toilet.

    I doubt very much that AMD will disappear but wait till September when the Athlon64 comes out and the AthlonXP replaces the Duron as the budget CPU though many big companies are lookin' to use AMD's Operton in commercial servers and workstations.

    They are not going to merge. IBM and AMD are working on a joint venture for future chips. Design and fab work.

    And with Intel's latest problem with their 800MHz FSB 3GHz CPU's, http://www.theinquirer.net/?article=9001, AMD's Hammer family and business liasons has Intel ver worried.

    considering a 1.6ghz almost rapes a 2.8ghz p4, it probably will own intel

    Let's not go to far here m8. It's a difference in mhz to mhz efficiency but not that mutch, The 1.73 ghz AMD I had performs about equal to my 2.26 ghz P4 within most benches. Except video/audio encoding, in that area the P4 is quite a bit faster than the AMD due to it's SSE2.

    Well, performance difference or not, that just ain't possible.

    If so it should been done by now, INTELS prices is now mutch lower than they use to be and AMD is not the only choice for budget builders no more..
