Confusing Quality with Speed. AMDs may be a little bit faster in games, but the Quality of the Processor is still less

It usually depends on the efficiency and speed of your computer.

Quality of the processor is less? Hell no! Intel's consume way too much power and are just packed with whack clock-speeds.

AMD's got memory controller, hypertransport etc.

Power is Power :P A Bentley consumes more power than a Ford Escort :P Which has the quality? Power is not a sign of Quality. How it ages is. And Intels have been proved to age bloody well.

AMD's are more energy-efficient and that's what counts for me. Think about Global Warming, man! The new VIA C7's look mouth-watering, with the instruction sets, improved bus, security features and maximum of 20 Watts consumption at 2GHz!

Shouldn't matter, we'll all be using nice happy safe Fusion Power in time anyway, then it won't matter at all! They have it working on Oxford... it is only time before they can get it working permanently and built a production version.

What a waste of a post... that was a really dumb thing to say... no offense, but if you trying to be funny... i have news for you, you weren't. Sorry to be mean, or to sound like it, but at least be realistic. We've had massive spammers and flamers and the like in the past weeks and *sigh* I'm not in the mood anymore. Thanks...
