Intel and AMD have been racing ever since the dawn of man (or at least the last few years). We’ve come upon a landmark in the pavement, dual core chips. The dual core chips are just what you think, two processors in one.
It’s a race to first instead of a race to best, which always boggled my mind. People are more impressed with who makes the technology first and gets their products on the shelf, opposed to whose processor actually processes better!
AMD seems to be in the head of this race to 2-in-1, with a release date of April 21, 2005 humming of the lips of cpu race fanatics. I’ve seen some benchmarking sites for pre-released dual core chips and can’t say I’m as impressed as I thought I’d be.
