AMD challanges validity of Intel Dual Core
AMD Exec, states Intel's definition and manufacturing process do not equate to "true" dual core chip.

Intelís dual-core platform consists of two separate cores in individual dies packaged together using multi-chip packaging in a single chip, which is not a true dual-core solution, according to Henri Richard

Another scenario -

One egg with two sperms = twins = AMD dual core
Two eggs with two sperms = Twins = Intel dual core

but who'll care ? You get 2 cores for not so much money, so most people won't even matter if it are 2 different cores or 1 big core (most people won't even know this)

but who'll care ?
Technology does ;), and so do eggs and sperms.

Isn't performnce the all important factor?

If AMD dual cores are better than Intel's (which seems they are), then that's all I need to know.

yeah, who cares if they are 3x as expensive :rolleyes:

I didn't mean in terms of overall purchase value.

I meant in terms of the AMD-Intel inner competition.

personally , I'm not gonna bother with Dual core until ALL the applications I use have adapted for dual cores.

I'm not a fan of paying lots of $$$
but you know if Intel had the better performer, they would charge more $$$. Heck even now the 800 series dual core EE is more $$$ than the top AMD dual core, and the top AMD dual core destroys the 800 series cpu(with it's logical 4 cores) in about 90+% of benches I have seen.

Once AMD can push production up, be assured prices will fall where the masses can purchase. Right now regular Intel dual cores are a joke, at least to me, nothing your really not already getting with HT with less heat and $$$ IMO. I'm sure you can find one or two applications where a true dual core P4 will win over a HT P4, but for day to day end user stuff, even encoding etc... I don't think it will be worth the heat production and power consumption. These are just my personal feelings based on my own assumptions though so I could be way off.

Stated here regarding extra cooling cost with Intel Dual core + new chipet = more total investment to own Intel Dual core.
