    I know there are a lot of other discussions on this, but unless people start fighting and flaming over what chip is better, it stays open. Keep it to calm disussion and i won't touch it (I dont know about other mods though)

    Agree with JJB6486, unless flaming and fighting go on, I won't close it as well.

    my xp 1800+ is the best cpu i have ever owned....that means i'm comparing it to a duron, p4 1.5, and a p2 233.....

    also....you people are obsessed w/ hertz...try cheking clock cycles and raw effeciency or pipeline usage and you will not find anyone better than amd

    Serious computing?!!? aren't we all "serious" about computing?
    Anyway, I'd go for an AMD but at the moment Intel has the upper hand. But raw power aside I think AMD is still more efficient.

    AMD for a quick & cheap hit. BUT these chips are HOT (too hot for me).
    INTEL for a workhorse of a chip - like all INTEL chips before it - its solid & dependable, built to last a life time

    All I can say is the 2 Pentiums (133mhz & 350mhz) I had are no more, but all 3 AMD (350mhz, 750mhz & 1.2ghz) are still going strong.

    I hear AMD is having problems developing 0.13 micron technology. Heck, Intel's had it for available to the public for months now. Intel is on to 0.09 micron and in a few years will reveal even a smaller version.
