Look when this thread was started, AMD used to pwn until the Core2Duo's.

Amd's hey day was the Athlon FX series. when did that come out 2004? By the end of 2005 intel was introducing the Core2s. This was the only time AMD dominated every benchmark and it really wasn't by much.

AMD have been the first to everything. Integrated memory controllers, 64 bit computing, the 1Ghz barrier, I could go on.

Snoop AMD also kicked ass with Athlon XP vs P4

AMD still is a poor mans best friend. They are always kicking ass on a budget, you gotta love them for that.

True, but if you think about it, if it wasn't for Intel there wouldn't be AMD.

Intel was the first to release the first true microprocessors and if it weren't for that, the whole CPU industry would be different.

AMD is great for budget users though...I still think Intel provides a better performance to price ratio however.

Yeah they do. But you can't beat a bargain bin computer with AMD.
I might just build one soon for my grandparents.
