Does that mean that AMD’s next generation won’t keep up? Let’s look at it this way; Intel is currently behind on many fronts – not solely related to performance. They are behind in platform, power, thermals, and performance. They have a lot of ground to make up; this is why Conroe will be such an impressive piece of kit as it repositions Intel to a point where they have fixed all of their previous issues and now all we have to do is hope they follow through. At the moment I find it impossible to get any Core Duo parts, so I don't know what to expect down the road - let's hope they get the process right.
