Replying to Amd Slashes Prices Up To 31% And Cans Unicore Processors!
Posted 21 July 2007 - 04:15 AM
Vidit, it's all about preferences. I prefer AMD (even though I have an Intel processor at the moment, am upgrading about next week when I get my paycheque).
It is true that Intel will drop prices too, but not as severe as the ones AMD had made (up to 31% drop since its January 2007 price drop).
Corsair RAMs would be different in different region and plus it's different for different grade of RAM chips. They have Value RAM, Performance and others too. Also, the speed of the RAM also changes its price.

1. Which is better Intel Core 2 Duo or AMD's dual core?
2. And i heard that Intel is also dropping the prices of Core2Duo's.......Is it true?
3. How much Corsair 2GB DDR2 Ram costs?

For the consumer end, desktops are going by the wayside as most people start to replace them with laptops. That is where the growth area has been and I believe will continue. That's where the power per watt really comes to play. Even in business, there are a lot of people going mobile as their only computer. And AMD is going to have problems unless they pull back and create a next generation of laptop chip that can compete with Intel.

Things have changed, but I remember 10 years ago with Solaris that most applications ran better on 32-bit Sparc systems and then you sent them off to the 64-bit UltraSparc's for number crunching. (engineering firm at the time that was doing airflow simulations.) If you tried to run the workstation end of the application on a 64-bit station, it ran like crap. I always thought that was crazy myself and learned then that more power != better performance.
Still AMD has to do something because Intel somehow did to AMD what Boeing has done with Airbus. Instead of going for raw performance, suddenly Intel said "performance per watt". Which means a lot on laptops and even large datacenters. If you knew the electric bill for the last studio I worked for, with over 150 Xserves and another 120 Macs, you'd understand where the savings in energy and heat production could more than pay for any price differential upfront between AMD & Intel chips.

This is great news for those of us that are in need of an upgrade! (I know I do!)
