Top 10 Reasons Intel Wont Dual-Core Duel AMD

Top 10 Reasons Intel will not Participate in the Dual-Core Duel
by: AMD

10. Tried to follow their own roadmap to get to the duel
9. Decided to take the "front-side bus" to the duel; got stuck in a bottleneck
8. The "Intel Inside" stickers they used to package the cores together keep melting
7. Too busy rearranging the deck chairs on the Itanic
6. "Hey, we don't expect anyone to actually buy these things!"
5. Didn't want to compete when they realized that the duel would involve actual "rules" of fair competition
4. They couldn't get a permit from the fire department to emit that much heat
3. No systems available yet - protective clothing used by manufacturers only safe for up to 149 watts
2. Dell told them they weren't allowed to participate

And the number one reason Intel won't accept the dual core duel:

1. Moore's Law has been replaced by "Paul's Paradox": the number of canceled products per year at Intel will double every year after the introduction of the AMD Opteron processor.

nice, not as good as the prescott survival kit from a few years back, but still fun.

haha, and it's so true as well, Intel's pathetic attempt to have the two Hyper Threading cores communicate across an 800MHz FSB was the stupidest thing ever. Each physical core gets 400MHz, and each logical core then gets 200MHz. Talk about bottleneck! Four cores (two virtual) each with only 200MHz FSB is sad. Get HyperTransport!

HAHA, yeah, I saw this, it's pretty funny! I can't believe AMD actually posted this on their website. But then again, I like to see them fighting back a little bit! :lol:

Intel are just in a position to be discrete when it comes to back stabbing ;)

Nice thread, I got a good laugh out of the first post. I am glad to see AMD really pulling ahead of Intel and causing them to rethink their business model. I hope that this will create a solid competition which we the users will get to benefit from!

Actually I still see a hope on Itanium2.
