AMD AMD confirmed details of its "Next Generation Processor Technology" today, but it's really business as usual for the company. As AMD heads to four-core country, the company will continue to improve the bandwidth of its processor package, tweak memory and rely on help from partners to compete with an upcoming line of revamped chips from Intel.

What do you mean no longer cheaper?

www.mwave.com is the source....

INTEL PENTIUM 4 630 3.0GHZ EM64T W/2MB CACHE 800MHZ LGA775-PIN RETAIL BOXED W/COOLING FAN (3 YEARS WARRANTY)

$172

AMD ATHLON 64 3000+ (ADA3000BPBOX) W/512KB CACHE 90NM (VENICE) 64-BIT SOCKET 939 RETAIL BOXED W/COOLING FAN (3 YEARS WARRANTY)

$111


PLUS the MoBo and RAM required for the Intel Proc is more expensive.

Even with Intel's more Cache memory, this AMD Proc Still wipes it up in benchmarks.... All because of the integrated memory controller on the die and Effective 2Ghz Hypertransport (FSB basically) ;)

My Home rig has AMDInstead and IntelInTrash
