“Deciding between an Athlon64 and a Pentium 4 used to be a generally tough decision. AMD was easily faster in games, but the Pentium 4 was always backed by superior platforms (Intel’s own chipsets), better multitasking performance thanks to HyperThreading, and generally better audio and video encoding performance.
Now that the playing field is even with both products supporting dual cores on a single CPU, it will be interesting to see how they compare. Today we’re looking at a couple mid-to-high range and a couple high end CPU’s from both Intel and AMD to see how they compare, in our first AMD vs. Intel Dual Core Battle.”

The playing feild has changed with the release of Pressler, which means all sorts of head to head battles between Intel and AMD. Read the results of this latest battle at hardCOREware.
