Wow that's original..did you think that one up all by yourself???

#1 better performance
#4 lower price

hey! you're missing 2 and 3 lol! you're a marketing guy right? I can tell. :-)

Umm, do you need an editor? Here, I'll do it for you:

# 1 better performance
# 2 lower price

That's better! BTW, you might preview your posts

yep it's so funny too, the guy doesn't bother to mention the physical properties that make it attractive, only the price and performance.

don't get me wrong now, I guess that;s all a someone would need to make him reach for there pocket, that's perfectly fine.

but, I'm more of a give me: "reliability, compatability, stability and *resonable* price" kind of guy, I guess those are the most important 4 points to look for when you are doing work and not play.

"AMD/VIA...you <i>still</i> are the weakest link, good bye!"

I agree with you AmdMeltdown. I am the same type of guy. I can sum your 4 points up in 10 points:

1)reliability
3)compatibility
6)stability
10)price

yup, those are the 10 points of buying an Intel chip.

please note the sarcasm aimed at jenspeterson in this post.

LOL Meltdown, your four points "reliability, compatability, stability and *resonable* price" are just as much "physical properties" as "only price and performance." Physical properties would be the CPU is square (oooo, I like that) the core is blue (whoah! my favorite color) It says Athlon on it! (Awesome!)

As far as your 4 points goes, AMD has all them. AMD cpus are reliable, compatible, stabile, and even more "*resonable*" priced. Granted VIA chipsets are not always stable, but is that AMD's fault? There is the AMD760 chipset with no issues.

Also AMD CPU's are great for "doing work and not play." Ummm, okay, but remember the P4 has <i>great</i> Quake 3 performance, which sounds like its great for play. It's interesting to notice that that's about all it performs well in.

Through your analysis AMDMeltdown, you have convinced me that AMD is better. It has all four of your points: "reliability, compatability, stability and *resonable* price," and since I'm a, "I guess those are the most important 4 points to look for when you are doing work and not play," kind of guy I wholly agree with you. AMD has all of those things you mentioned; it is the superior choice.

Hmmm...you're probably between grade school and junior high, and you try to judge a chip. Kind of explains your rather poor judgment calls.

And don't try to tell me you're some kid prodigy, because you're not that smart. You've made that quite clear many times.

And how old is SpudMuffin, I wonder? Two, three years?

Oh, wait, T-bird systems are not stable, compatible, and reliable? I guess nobody told my <A HREF="http://www.anandtech.com/mysystemrig.html?rigid=5092" target="_new">system</A> that.

See, the even sadder thing is that AmdMeltdown is 30 something, not 12... That's what's even worse. Poor guy.

May 18, 2001 6:34:21 PM

So is it bad to be thirtysomething in general, or is it just pathetic that meltdown is thirtysomething, based on the things he says?
May 18, 2001 6:39:22 PM

30 something and really does act like hes 12

I don't have the time to procrastinate.
May 18, 2001 6:47:21 PM

Well, either he's 30 something, or he's not an "amd systems integrator." 12 years old and with an attitude problem--I doubt anyone would hire an idiot like that to build so much as a house of cards.

Oh yes, I got the joke, the problem was, two of the four points were missing, so I helped you out and sliced it down to two :)

I am so glad to know that a 12 year old runs his mouth about AMD being crap....

Amdmeltdown.....how many amd systems have you built?

it would be nice to know how old spudmuffin is.

kelledin, I find it very hard not to laugh at you, lol, I mean, you're so envious of me being an AMD System Integrator which is something you've wish you can do, but alas! your physical apperance prevents you from attaining even that. good bye!

1) I'm a systems integrator--not specifically AMD or Intel, I have build both in my time, also a little bit of Alpha and SPARC work.

2) Primarily I'm a *NIX specialist, which is exactly what I prefer to be. As for your professed occupation (pissing away your life working with something you apparently hate), I wouldn't envy you <i>that.</i>

3) I seriously doubt you know my physical appearance--or know that it goes along perfectly with being a *NIX specialist. You're just grabbing at straws.

wusy, it is so funny to me that you would get this worked up over something like this. I am sorry that you can't deal with someone that prefers Intel to AMD in a mature manner. And please watch the language, saying things like that to people you don't know only degrades this message board and makes people not want to visit it.

"kill" is used to kill a process, bash is the shell. The commands kills processes, and the computer asks "What are you Doing , Dave?" like in 2001, because its killing the shell....Get it?

Athlon [x]</b>
September 30, 2001 8:30:57 PM

Right now the athlon is the better processor when everything is taken into consideration, if northwood brings 20% more performance to the table but still costs 600-800 bucks, I would have to still choose the athlon. Right now no home user needs more than 1ghz to get everything they need done, it is no longer about pure power but about price/performance. Hopefully both companies will compete off eachother and make the deals better for us all.(without going out of buisness etc etc)

yep

more to a slick system than a zippy processor.
theres the all important graphics card, sound, monitor, blah blah blah.
all of which u will get more of if you get an athlon instead of a overpriced p4.

oppps. almost forgot the 4 good points about the athlon.

1. stability (damn good despite having the via southbridge, sb live card, new operating system with all its 'issues' [win2k], and heavily overclocked fsb)
2. price
3. performance (especially the FPU & 150mhz fsb)
4. overclocking potential.
