Default AMD has some competition

Can the Pentium 4 630 64 bit compete with the Athlon 64 3400+?

in certain tasks, but you forget that you can overclock the crap out of that athlon 64 and it won't melt like that P4, but you know what beats both of those, the Apple G5 procs, man they are smoking fast.

Intel does suck, I don't really care... They are so overpriced and underperforming, and all Intel does is monopolize.. Steve Jobs is foolish for turning to Intel for his processors!

Intel doesn't put money into their product anymore, they put money into their marketing strategies and Dell advertisements and monopolizing strategies. Jerks.
