AMD is coming out with a 4x4 line of prcessors. The benchmarks are lower now, but wait for the apps and games to utilize it.

I like intel because they have the core 2 duo but the AMD athlon X2 is also a pretty good processor as well.

Haha, two years ago, I would've never imagined the poll would be this close. Back then, it would've vastly been in AMD's favor. Now...sheesh, wow.

Haha, it's officially QuadFX. It's such a gimmick. Just like Quad SLI.

I'd say Intel. They're way ahead of AMD, they're coming out with 45nm chips soon, and AMD hasn't even touched 65nm yet. Not only this but Core 2 Quad is already out, as well as the Xeon versions. Intel is just way ahead of AMD so far. To me it seems like AMD is just coming up with a bunch of stupid ideas as of late. 4x4 won't go anywhere, Torenza is stupid, and the acquisition of ATI has yet to prove useful. I think AMD is just way in over their heads this time around.
