The processor world used to be only Intel now there is another contender AMD Advanced Micro Devices A couple years ago when AMD first made its way into the scene there were many incompatibility problems with AMD processors and programs However due to changes in the design these incompatibility problems no longer plague the AMD line of processors But it is a known fact that an AMD equivalent of any Intel processor is about 30 to 50 MHz slower than the Intel counterpart Up until recently AMD has had a boost in speed that Intel has lacked in certain games due to 3DNOW a SIMD Single Instruction Multiple Data technology But with Intels new line of processors named Pentium III they now have their own SIMD KNI Katmai New Instruction AMDs line of processors used to be able to keep up with Intel using 3DNOW but with KNI Intel will once again take a very large lead in speed Thus I believe Intel builds better and faster processors than AMD The first ever problems AMD had were with incompatibility problems that plagued their entire line of CPUs until the K6 These problems hurt AMD because nobody wanted a CPU that could not run 15 of the programs out People wanted a processor that had programs optimized specifically for it people wanted a computer with a sticker that said Intel Inside because they knew every program would run on it If people wanted a cheap solution then they went with the low-cost AMD CPU and faced incompatibility problems with a lot of programs But most people were willing to spend the money to get the genuine Intel processor and this is a major reason AMD became the underdog and left Intel to reign as King One point that people paid much attention to was 3D graphics and the PII with its superior FPU Floating-Point Unit could easily outperform the K6 processor in 3D applications
