"Ever since Intel released their Core 2 Duo line of computer
chips, they've been winning the war for processor supremacy. And not

quad core chips have shown better performance than their AMD competition
at similar price points which leaves consumers hard pressed to take the
AMD route. With their foot planted firmly on the neck of the
competition, the boys in blue are unleashing a killer combo of
budget quad cores that make AMD's new Phenom already look dated."
