AMD.

I used to have Intel stuff, but got rid of it, in favour of AMD
purely because i know i can get just as good performance,
if not better than Intel, and there is also the price factor.
Intel simply cannot match it with AMD, no matter how much
people say they are reliable.

Intel may have the lead, but it is about to be retaken by AMD!!

so amd and intel are the only main players in the cpu war ay?

wasnt there another company that was keeping it up in the low end stakes. was it cyrix or something.


how is amiga going? do they make their own cpu chips or are they finished now?
I love it when you touch me there

Didn't know AMD made chipsets anymore... Wish they did, instead of letting Via and some of the others make or break them.

Gotta go with Intel. Just have better luck with them. No crashes. Haven't had to reinstall an OS since I switched.

My AMD's lock up if I look at them funny, regardless of chipset, and have to zero-fill and install every couple of months. Keeps me in practice I guess.

yeh, whys this thread called favourite chipset?

anyway, AMD are faster now, and don't cost nearly as much.

for chipset... VIA all the way.. VIA know how to make a good, reliable chipset, but Nvidia are faster.
