i prefer AMD since i am using one.I use AMD because --comparatively cheap --high performance --high stabilty --greater support for gaming i recommned AMD FX 64 bit computing.It has many advantage over intel pentium 4 processors.but i heard that intel pentium duo core2 is much better than other precedures and a like performance with AMD 64.so i f you are going to buy a new computer either you go for AMD FX 64 or Pentium 4 Duo core 2. thank you!

I prefer amd, because they are cheaper. I have been using a amd processor for more than 4 years and I never had a problem with it. It works fine and I have a good cooler so it doesn't make much heat. In the new generation of proccesors amd is better in games, and intel in multitasking. For office work and many programs intel is better than amd.

GeodeLink System Architecture AMD announces its top-to-bottom system architecture for systemon- a chip. The AMD GeodeLink™ architecture offers a single on-chip interconnect that facilitates the integration of modules and allows the use of Unified Memory Architecture (UMA). Unified Memory Architecture (UMA) At the heart of the GeodeLink architecture is the built-in arbiter. The arbiter enables dynamic allocation of memory bandwidth, with “on-the-fly” prioritization. Use of out-of-order data streams coupled with a high-performance peer-to-peer communication enables direct communication between modules, resulting in more efficient use of shared memory. On-Chip Switched Fabric At the core of the GeodeLink architecture lies a very highbandwidth interface unit that can handle up to 6 GB/s of data transfer. With up to 31 pipelined transactions, the architecture increases the level of performance by allowing devices to have multiple simultaneous outstanding requests. This single bus architecture improves performance and facilitates IP reusability, thus improving our customers’ time-to-market. Advanced Hardware Power Management (AHPM) The GeodeLink architecture has embedded power management features. This allows our OEM and ODM customers to take advantage of advanced power management without writing a single line of code. It is also OS independent, since the power management calls are handled at the BIOS level. Development Software The GeodeLink architecture has an embedded Enhanced JTAG interface that provides a consistent debug environment. With full bus master access and branch trace messaging capabilities, software development can be significantly accelerated.
