AMD or Intel

@TC: Always had a thing for them myself.

AMD has made a major comeback. Their single-core benchmark scores are in shooting range of Intel's (Intel has roughly a 10% lead, give or take).

Surprisingly, on paper, AMD's architecture should beat Intel's. AMD processors have a wider decode width than Intel's (meaning theoretically, the processor can run more instructions simultaneously). AMD CPUs also have significantly more cache. It looks like Intel, despite having a more "narrow" processor, has the optimization to make up for the difference. It will be interesting to see how things turn out over the next couple of years.

That being said, AMD makes up for the difference in their multi-core results. Intel is not even coming close.
