    New price/performance leader for AMD versus Intel, April 13, 2007

    An AMD Athlon X2 processor is a good idea for a system builder, because it offers two cores using a 64-bit architecture. A comparable CPU type might be the Intel Core 2 Duo processors, which are also two cores using a 64-bit architecture. Just recently, AMD price cuts have brought the costs of the AMD Athlon X2 5600+ CPUs under comparable Intel Core2 Duo E6400 CPUs. Even better, the AMD processor outperforms the Intel processor.

    A quick perusal of the CPU charts at Tom’s Hardware shows that the AMD Athlon X2 5600+ is now showing much faster than the Intel Core 2 Duo E6400, and with pricing being cheaper, is a clear performance value.

    AMD systems offer, in general, a very good alternative to Intel-based machines. For systems builders, be they hobbyists or professionals, the recent price cuts are a good indication that AMD is going to compete in the short-term against Intel to preserve market share. AMD needs to retain its base until its new fabrication dies are being produced in volume, and with it quad-core CPUs to compete against Intel’s offerings and once again try to wrest the performance crown from them.

    What this means to end users like us is that you can get a more powerful CPU at a lower cost, which is always good. Be sure to get a retail version of any CPU you purchase, as they have longer warranty periods (three years as opposed to three months) and easier return processes.
