Default Intel Pentium Brand 14 Years Old

MARCH 22 1993 saw Intel ship the first Pentium processor, clocking in at an astonishing 60MHz. Replacing the 486, Chipzilla cocked a snook with the name as pundits had been confidently predicting it would be called the 80586. But Intel failed to convince the US Patent Office that it could patent a number, so it was named after Craig Barrett's horse instead.

that's a real neutral answer . Time to open your eyes AMD-fan-boy, their cpu's aren't as bad as you think. In fact, their cpu's are better again, it's something you can't ignore nowadays.
