To me the cutting edge is better dual core functioning and better
memory handling. Also lower power consumption is a nice feature. How
about 64 bit processors? How easy is it to get an Intel 64 bit
processor? At what cost/benefit ratio?
I like how Intel is now following the AMD line stating that processor
speed isn't as important as processing power. Hasn't AMD been stating
that for years? And hasn't Intel been bashing them over it for years.
I cannot comment on THG as I rarely look at it.
I will add that the best processor depends on the code and usage. For
most of what I do, AMD wins hands down in the real world.
