AMD vs. intel

It is hard to imagine that there is any other processor than Intel. There is a processor called AMD (advanced micro devices) currently leading in the silicon race for the fastest processor at an affordable price. No longer shall Intel lead the market when AMD makes its name superior.
A CPU is a microprocessor that is generally constructed with millions of tiny switches called transistors that are imbedded in silicon. The outer shell is ceramic with gold pins protruding out of the processor to make a connection with the motherboard. The function of the processor is to take the data from memory, (a storage device) or an outside controller like a keyboard, joystick, or scanner. This is determined in the program by sending messages to the processor in binary language. Binary language is sent to the processor commanding the transistors to flip on or off, (on equals one and off equals zero).
The processor is placed on a motherboard with a bus speed of that to match the processor. This allows the processor to go as fast as the wires making up the bus can handle. This means the less resistance in the wire the faster your system can run.
Networking is a complicated job with older slower computers; the Athlon is the key to the networking stability. Using the fastest networking components with the fastest PC (Personal Computer) in the world. This makes a network with minimal problems and high-end data pass through possible. There is a bottleneck theory that is related to memory and networking. In memory it is caused by having to slow of memory on to fast of a bus. This will not happen if the AMD Athlon System has PC133 memory. Intel had programs made by the monopolization of Microsoft Windows 3.1x, 95x, 98x this made it hard for AMD to compete in the past. Microsoft Windows 2000 will now incorporate programming made to run windows faster more reliable and be compiled to run better on the Athlon systems. With Intel out of the way, on top end networking AMD can pull into the lead in one more area. Listen to what AMD has to say about this project. "Microsoft and AMD worked together throughout the design process to !
The hardest thing to do is notice the values and how they add up. Systems all need a motherboard, CPU, memory, hard drive and floppy, video card, and CD-ROM. The faster each part is the more your processor can increase in strength. Such as adding more memory or faster memory the bus can carry more information. Hard drive can improve the speed of your system also. This all makes Intel even more behind in the CPU race because all the motherboard parts are slower or should I say substantially slower than the AMD's. This means if you gave an Intel and an AMD the same amount of memory than the Intel would be slower. If you spent two to three times more on the Intel for memory then in reality the Intel could run as fast as the AMD. This is an unethical thing to do when you could just go out and buy an AMD Athlon.
help ensure the combination of floating-point performance of the AMD Athlon processor and Microsoft's Windows 2000 Professional will provide a reliable and high-performance business platform that meets the needs of business customers today and well into the future."
