Posted on: 11/28/2005 07:14 PM

C|Net has reported the results of an internal "prizefight" between Intel and AMD's dual-core offerings.
After reading the round-by-round account of our dual-core desktop CPU prizefight, it should come as no shock that AMD's Athlon 64 X2 chips are the runaway victors here, laying out the Intel Pentium D and Pentium Extreme Edition 840 chips pins up. If we had to call out one chip, AMD's Athlon 64 X2 4400+ is an outstanding bargain given the competition, but as our results show, any AMD dual-core CPU will serve you better than its similarly priced Intel equivalent.
They came up with 7 "rounds" which included Day-to-day computing, gaming, and video encoding. For the full run-down, you can find it here.
