We actually won TWO Benchmarks - TWO !

Our AMD processors are the best - and all of our disenfranchised AMD lovers can claim, once again, superiority for the AMD CPUs.

We are the greatest - and you Intel haters made me $16 Million Richer last year.

Thanks, suckers.

roflmfao......$16 Million compared to the $40+billion Intel is making....ha thats rich. Intel gets the proverbial phallic shoved in its mouth. NutBurst, Sore 2 booty or whatever repugnant name they come up with next can kiss my ass.

Only problem is that Intel motherboards are more expensive than complete AMD system with 24" LCD monitor.

"The obtained results suggest that AMD Athlon 64 X2 5000+ should cost no more than $180, and Athlon 64 X2 4800+ and 4600+ - no more than $140, if they want to successfully compete with the new Intel CPUs."

Yeah... right, but loot at this :

Athlon 64 X2 4800+ --> ~$136
Athlon 64 X2 5000+ --> ~$166
Athlon 64 X2 5200+ --> ~$176
Athlon 64 X2 5600+ --> ~$189

"However, we doubt that a price cut like that will ever be possible."

AMD will do it 2 weeks before Intel...

Worthless unless you have the direct source for it.

Still worthless if Intel follows with their own price cut.

Um. Where did you find such cheap 4800+ and 5000+ chips? All you've linked to are the lower in dual cores. Also, I'm pretty sure you won't be able to find a Athlon64 x2 5000+ or better for less than $200 unless you're looking on ebay or OEM chips. Remember, the Intel prices are retail boxes. Try to make a fair comparison next time instead of trying to fool people by spamming with extraneous information.

Also, can the article please be corrected to take into account the current AMD prices?
