AMD vs Intel DualCore Shootout at ZDNet

ZDNet reviewed the new Dual Core CPUs from AMD and Intel. How did they fare?

lowest end Dual Core AMD is $87 more than the lowest end Dual Core Intel.
But that $87 gives you the performance of a mid-level upper-midlevel Intel
DualCore with LESS of the power dissipation. I know where my vote goes…
