Choosing between AMD and Intel procesors

There are very few companies dealing in the semiconductor or so called processors. Intel leads the small bunch of manufacturers. Other manufacturers includes AMD, CYrix, Motorola, Texas Instruments and few more. Intel has completely dominated the processor market as most of the branded as well as assembled computers available in the market has been using the popular Intel processor.

Intel really got its speed with the launch of the Pentium Series processor as it had more power, efficiency. So lots of computer users became attracted to it. Next to Intel comes the AMD processor. AMD was never a competitor to the Intel processors but with the launch of the six generation processor it began to show some competitiveness. It merged with Nexgen(another chip manufacturer) and produces some processor namely K6-II and K6-III. AMD gave a real scare when it began to produce ATHLON series processor as it became the first processor to cross the 1 GHz barrier.

Intel now again has its upper hand as it has been releasing the multi core processors which are very fast and works on the principal of virtual processing. Maybe AMD is thinking hard about it.
