Intel vs AMD in the near future

Ed over at has another one of his great articles as he pontificates on the next several months:
The Athlon chips will benefit more from DDR than the Intel chips simply because the FSB is going to jump more. Overclockers are already doing 150Mhz with Intel chips; Athlon overclockers are nowhere near that. If T-Birds and Durons are holding their own or better despite this FSB handicap, they'll do better still if the playing field is levelled. Going from around 100Mhz to 266Mhz should get you about 15% more performance out of the same Mhz.
Check out this insightful article.
