AMD's Model Numbers, Intel query them

  1. Hardwarecentral have an interesting article discussing the pros and cons of AMD's performance rating system. Since the Athlon XP has been AMD's most successful processor to date, Intel have been querying their rating system and suggesting that it confuses consumers more than it clarifies the actual performance that the chips give.

    Is there a need for a new industry standard for performance rating?

    Yup. It does seem to be the case.
    AMD seem to be getting into a stronger position.
    Its going to make the rest of the pre-64bit releases very interesting. I am most looking forward to the Barton 0.13 SOI release.... With Intel at 0.13 and AMD at 0.13 + SOI it should be interesting to see who comes out top.
