AMD wins gong at Intel bash (http://www.theinquirer.net/?article=22504)

AMD CAUSED something of a ruckus last night by winning the Computer Trade Show award for Best CPU Manufacturer at a shindig sponsored by Intel.

Awards, presented by Intel, were given out throughout the night. However, the Intel lady left the AMD award until last, and walked off the stage rather than present it personally to a jubilant set of chaps.

We got some blurry 3am bar-room photos of the award itself, which AMD were said to be delighted with. There's a nice big 'Sponsored by Intel' logo in the corner. How wonderfully ironic.

"Oh man, that is a burn. Dude, Intel just got burned, burned dude, burned."

Anyway, it is rather humorous.

if you think about it, it is only the rivalry betweem AMD and Intell that keeps the develpment of faster proccesors going.

Bah, AMD is coming out with their own processor using hyper threading.

And they'll catch up. I believe in them.

Wow, that name is beyond lame. Intel should be beaten in the crotch for that.

Intel has got alot of Extreme versions of the P4 but none of them are able to win AMD. So I doubt this one could
