“If you want to build a system soon, you’re faced with something of a dilemma: Both Intel and AMD are planning substantial upgrades to their CPUs this year. In the case of AMD, they’re simply moving the existing architecture to DDR2/667 and a new socket format. Otherwise, there are no substantial changes coming this year from AMD.
Intel, on the other hand, is readying a new architecture for their desktop PCs that’s substantially different from the existing NetBurst (Pentium D and Pentium 4) CPUs. Although it borrows a few elements from NetBurst, and adds a few twists of its own (such as single-cycle SSE instruction execution), it’s more similar to the current Intel mobile architecture than to current Pentium D processors.”
