7 Round Prizefight
The contenders:
Dual-core desktop CPU bout: AMD vs. Intel
The winner is AMD: 100 points Intel: 0 points

I think the judges that scored this bout should have shown some mercy and stop the fight TKO after the second round.
In gaming even the lowest end dual core Athlon 64 X2 3800+ ($322.00 USD) was winner over
Intel's highest-end Extreme Edition 840 Dual Core ( $1,029.00 USD)

On the server site, most people here are probably familiar about this:
The Challenge
AMD proposes a live dual-core duel in 2005 - a public performance evaluation between server platforms based on the highest-performing Dual-Core AMD Opteron™ 800 Series or 200 Series processors and the corresponding Intel x86 server processors that are commercially available in volume.

Top 10 Reasons Intel will not Participate in the Dual-Core Duel
10.Tried to follow their own roadmap to get to the duel
9.Decided to take the "front-side bus" to the duel; got stuck in a bottleneck
8.The "Intel Inside" stickers they used to package the cores together keep melting
7.Too busy rearranging the deck chairs on the Itanic
6."Hey, we don't expect anyone to actually buy these things!“
5.Didn't want to compete when they realized that the duel would involve actual "rules" of fair competition
4.They couldn't get a permit from the fire department to emit that much heat
3.No systems available yet --protective clothing used by manufacturers only safe for up to 149 watts
2. Dell told them they weren't allowed to participate
And the number one reason Intel won't accept the dual-core duel:
1. Moore's Law has been replaced by "Paul's Paradox": the number of canceled products per year at Intel will double every year after the introduction of the AMD Opteron™processor.

Just in case some might think this is just a joke

Heh, Intel may be laying down but they are laying in a pile of million-dollar bills :p

I dont feel sorry for them considering the way they "earned" that money...

AMD f*ckin rocks!!! :D I switched to AMD years ago back when 1.1Ghz was the fastest chip AMD had.... I have not looked back sence and have loved all of the AMD CPU's I have had... GG AMD! ;)

hehe yeah.. Maybe Dell will gather some curage and start selling AMD based rigs soon, their TV ads makes me sick "powerful pentium 4 celeron processors".. I mean who are they kidding here?

Well, Havent used Intel since my P3 450Mhz, but I hope they get their act together soonish, a bit of (fair) competition never hurts..
If they put out something Desktop based on the Pentium M, slap on some 64bit extentions, SSE3 and clone up a second core on it, they might have something for once..

Yea this is hilarious. It always gets a chuckle out of me :) I would like to see something like this with ATI and nV! :)

2006 will see Intel right back up there - I expect them to win the next round.

You assume AMD will not counter and keep the crown?

With what? Are they going to buy out VIA and start making a full size CPU with the same wattage/performance ratio? :drooling: If not, the I'm predicting another 2 years of victory AMD atleast. Socket M2 with DDR2 will be coming (soon too with 3 new cores) and even the value chip will use the same socket this time around (instead of doing something like ditching 754).
