AMD AnandTech takes a look at AMD's new Phenom. "If you were looking for a changing of the guard today it's just not going to happen. Phenom is, clock for clock, slower than Core 2 and the chips aren't yet yielding well enough to boost clock speeds above what Intel is capable of. While AMD just introduced its first 2.2GHz and 2.3GHz quad-core CPUs today, Intel previewed its first 3.2GHz quad-core chips. We were expecting Intel to retain the high end performance crown, but also expected AMD to chip away at the lower end of the quad-core market - today's launch confirms that Intel is still the king of the quad-core market."

I've been running this Athlon64 3400+ for almost 3 years now, and next summer i'll search for a new computer to replace it. What will i look for? As i am not a fool, i won't spend like 500 euro on the microprocessor, but more like 200 or even less if possible.
If AMD can give me a quad core for that price that has competitive performance with the intel equivalent, and lower power consumption i'll go for it, if not i will have to go for intel.
