They compete in price/performance and performance/watt. In large multi-CPU servers the superior scaling also plays a vital role in their keeping up with the Intel behemoths.

The Boxer vs. The Puncher

The Puncher reels, the Boxer circles
Jab jab jab

Not so long ago, the puncher threw
All he had, into his haymaker
His right hook, but the boxer made it through

The Puncher stumbles, the boxer closes in
Jab jab jab

Not enough strength, to continue the dance
What they said is coming true
The puncher never really had a chance

The Puncher tires, the Boxer is born anew
Jab jab jab

One more go, perhaps all that he has
How long can he continue
Not much longer; As

The Puncher falls, the Boxer rises
Jab jab jab

Are AMDs still popular in the 2S market? I thought that market has been swallowed back by the quad-core Xeons. I'm pretty sure that AMD still has the lead in the 4S market though. Even though the market is much smaller, they make a HUGE profit off those chips. When the quad-core Opty's are released for the 4S market, AMD should get a nice chunk of cash....

You forgot to count the millions of cheap shots the boxer has thrown in along the way...

Don't even talk about the cheap shots... lol

The new Opteron Quad's are socket F. So if you had a FX-74 platform, these new barcelona chips are looking great. Untill they make a new motherboard for the socket F processors... I wouldnt bother trying to get one for gaming... I hear the dual socket F motherboard with SLI had a ton of issues, lots of people saying they had to RMA 3-4 times to finally get a working one.

AMD is due for a breakthough in the CPU world... Their next CPU lineup should be something definitly worth looking at.

So will Nehalem.

I used to be an AMD fanboy - now I look equally at both camps. I hope AMD can remain competitive, otherwise we'll have the stagnant 90's all over again.

Also would you go with a cheap cpu that works or buy a expensive cpu?

I could with a AMD Operton quad and save some money then buying a similar Intel for a high price.

Even in servers, I shipped my own dual quad-core xeon to my datacenter because I didn't want to go with a dual or quad core opteron system, which was all they were offering. 8 cores > 4 cores for slightly more.

Intel has been in the lead for too long and its starting to show in amd.
