AMD vs Intel Update: AMD Can't Keep a Secret
Will Beat Intel in the Dual-Core Microprocessor Race

AMD is supposed to use Opteron's second-anniversary party in New York on April 21 to launch its dual-core Opteron chip thereby beating out Intel, which isn't supposed to launch its dual-core widget until May.

See, it's tradition in the microprocessor business that the first one out is supposed to dominate the market. AMD's will be a dual-core server chip. Intel's not supposed to have a dual-core Xeon until next year.

That means that to prevent AMD from getting too much of a head start Intel will have to get its server minions pairing the Smithfield Pentium chip with the Lindenhurst chipset, which will at least give them a one-way dual-core Intel configuration. The dual-core Opterons are supposed to be good for quads.

"In the end, both companies are likely to introduce their dual-core chips within a few weeks or months of each other. The chips, however, will initially target different markets.

Intel's Pentium D and Pentium Extreme Edition will be used in desktop computers; AMD's dual-core Opteron chip will target servers. Then, through 2006, the companies will broaden their dual-core lines into all the major PC markets: mobiles, desktop and server."

This is old news and her article paints a funny picture. I personally like AMD better but the fact remains that they will target different markets at first. I don't think Intel will wait until next year to get a server version of a dual core processor out if AMD gets to the line first. I would have posted earlier but I was harassing the forum doctor.
