I think Intel core 2 duo is better than amd x2.Because they redevelop the processor architecture from scratch. It has the following advantanges: 1,It consumes less power 2,It can be easily overclocked 3,Its dual core is different from pentium d processors

Until the launch of Core 2 Duo, I would have said AMD. Not only does the X6800 outperform the FX-62 - so do the E6700 and usually the E6600 as well, at half the price. Based on Intel’s next-generation Core microarchitecture, the Intel Core 2 Duo offers a second-generation chip born of Intel’s new 65-nanometer process. That process lets Intel create incredibly small transistors — small enough, in fact, to fit a hundred inside a single human cell. With two powerful processors designed to share resources and circuitry so unimaginably small, Intel Core 2 Duo achieves far higher levels of performance while actually consuming less power. And, with its 64-bit processor architecture, the Intel Core 2 Duo can manipulate data and execute instructions in chunks that are twice as large (64 bits versus 32 bits), delivering advanced computational power to iMac. That adds up to exceptional speed and agility, improved performance you’ll notice when working with photos in iPhoto or Aperture, creating Keynote presentations, editing video in Final Cut Pro or playing Doom.
