AMD Publicly Challenges Intel to a Dual-Core Duel!

has formally and publicly challenged to a dual-core shootout. is so confident in the dual core Opterons that they're even giving Intel time to come out with "optimal" dual core Xeons to compete with.

http://www.amd.com/us-en/0,,3715_13368_13369,00.html

Check out the full article in the above link, make sure to go and sign the petition too! I have a feeling that is going to wimp out and decline to be a part of the test in fear of getting rodgered by AMD!

P.S. Look at that this!!!!!!!!!! http://www.amd.com/us-en/assets/cont.../top_10_v1.pdf are so confident in their products now that they're publicly bashing the hell out of . I personally think this is great, after so many years of taking to the cleaners just because of the huge fanboy following. finally knows 100% that nothing Intel has can beat the Opteron.

HAVE FAITH, brethren! Intel will. . will.. . yeah, anyone want to buy an intel rig

I cant wait to see this go down, perhaps it'll convince ATI to do the same to Nvidia and the like. Not like we already know the answer..

Dell 'sourcing AMD-based PCs from Taiwan'

The last in line finally succumbs?

Dell has contracted three Taiwanese manufacturers to supply it with PCs based on AMD processors, the Asian press has claimed.

According to Chinese Language newspaper Economic Daily News this past weekend, Asus, Quanta and Hon Hai Precision (aka Foxconn) are all developing AMD-based systems for Dell. Their specialisms suggest the PC giant is buying desktops, notebooks and servers, respectively.

Dell has traditionally been an Intel-only house, and is the only major Wintel systems vendor to hold out against AMD. Some observers claim Intel makes it worth Dell's while, but Dell is canny enough to play the two chip makers off against each other to ensure it always gets the most favourable terms.

Every so often, Dell drops hints it might launch AMD-based systems, much to the joy of AMD fanboys, but somehow never quite manages to do so. This month it began selling boxed AMD processors, seen by some as a change of heart - or a bulwark against any fall-out from AMD's legal challenge to Intel. AMD accuses its arch-rival of deliberately attempting to harm its business, a charge Intel refutes.

And of course Intel now has a second exclusive customer: Apple. The Mac maker's decision to turn to Intel for its x86 chips could be seen to weaken Dell's bargaining position, though in reality the scale of its processor purchasing activity dwarfs Apple's. ®

When I bought my AMD 64 rig many intel owners took the because the guys in shops they bought their intel rigs had told them that AMD would be a passing fad and that intel was going to outdo the 64 bit processors like it had all the rest. SOunds a we bit hollow now. Couldnt have happened to a nicer company.

LOL AMD Challanging intel, well AMD would win, because they designed there duel core's from the ground up as 2 seperate core's that work together in harmony, wheras intel just got 2 prescots and put them together with a hammer...or so it seems...they just run amasingly hot...and dont actually show that much improvement over a single core...

According to AMD they already won. They claim Intel didnt even seem to care.
