Inquirer made me laugh

As much as I know how much people take the Inquirer with a grain, or a whole shaker, of salt, but I was reading an article about AMD and Intel in media encoding, when this statement made me laugh a bit.

Quote:
The E6600 is as good as a FX62, but AMD is still better at the lower end, partly because, there are no E6100 or 62000 for the time being.


That was pretty funny, because I was actually expecting some sort of spin or complaint about how the tests were run. The article has a link to Lost Circuits, who actually did the comparasions.

    I wonder how much a 62000 will cost? How will it bench? will it be 32nm?
    (I know, I know, it was a typo, but I couldnt resist)

    The premise is funny though...'Harley Davidson cant compete with Honda because they dont make a scooter'. True, but kind of pointless.

    What I find very intersting is their X2 5000 comment:

    " 5000+** $301 **from AMD price list - chip is very difficult to find at retail"

    Peace
