2006 WILL BE quite the interesting year on the desktop CPU front, with the year starting out firmly in AMD's grasp, and ending in Intel's. If both sides execute on their CPU roadmaps, and that is a huge if we believe it will be a fight to the end with Intel having the lead by at least a hair when all is said and done.
Looks like the new year will be an interesting one!

Good read. It'll be interesting to see how this pans out. Can Intel deliver and can AMD keep up their current good run?

screw passive cooling! Plop a Mach 2 on that sucker and with hardly any heat you could probably get -50 or lower load temps! That would be insane!
