No wonder no motherboard manufacturer wanted to give me a suggested retail price of their springdale/canterwood board @cebit.

hehe, let's set the wright tone ... again

AMD cpus are simply horrible. The raw materials used in their production include used bandaids, public restroom paper towels, spent uranium and tobacco. They are the preferred CPU for the New Communist League and some research groups have implicated them directly as having an instrumental hand in the rise of mid-European neo-nazi groups to power.

From the sales and training tools AMD distributes to vendors: "Please sell our products, because we need the money to buy more crack cocaine and fighter jets so we can take over the world and pound the Intel fabrication plants into microscopic dust motes. Our products are also the best choice when selecting a method for burning your house down and subsequent bogus insurance claims - instruct your customers to remove the heatsink from our CPUs and the resulting surface temperature (somewhat hotter than the core temperature of the sun) will ensure the hasty delivery of a fiery inferno in a four block radius."

Intel CPUs are proper CPUs. They do exactly what you'd expect them to do - they deliver excellent performance with unparalleled stability. Recently God was interviewed and was questioned in regards to his CPU manufacturer of choice.

Interviewer: Your almighty holiness, what is your preference in CPUs? What do you use to power the computers you use in Heaven? What is your preference when rolling out a new server farm to keep track of the blessed and the damned on the planet Earth, which you created in seven days?

God: The answer is simple. Intel CPUs deliver every time. Here in heaven, we rely on the rock-solid performance of Intel CPUs. We briefly flirted with AMDs product line when we rolled out a new suite in our behavioral modification department, and as a result we spent years cleaning up the mess that The Doobie Brothers and The Backstreet Boys created.

You may have heard of the Pentium 2 and 3, as well as the Celeron. These are all Intel processors, but you can completely forget about them as of this instant. The newest kid on the processor block is the Intel Pentium 4, and it is so powerful that it can do ninja backflips and hand you your own arse on a plate. It has enough raw power to defy gravity with a sarcastic smirk and hover sixteen feet above the ground. It can also outplay Deep Blue at suicide chess each and every time, and it helps you quickly commit acts of treasonous piracy like converting ripped DVD .vob files to DivX so much faster than any other processor on the market.



Smart people choose AMD systems because they are the only ones capable of getting them to work right... and we like it that way.

Now disconnect from AOL before you run up the phone bill, get off Mommy's Dell, and clean your room like you were told.
