Soon, the 64-bit Prescott's will be upon us, and we'll be able to finally have comparisons of who's better in the 64-bit arena. http://www.theregister.co.uk/2004/05/28/intel_64b_prescott/

Hurray for 64-bit chips! I heard AMD were also manufacturing one though.

hurray for intel for jumping on the amd banwagon. but if recources are tru, 64 bit p4's will be about the same price as 32 bit p4's, which will dramatically help the market. hope their not talking about the p4ee's...

Not really. Intel has had the Itaniums for a while now, but they're not using the x86 architecture, which means all hardware (and software) for them has to be made to be only compatible with the Itanium's 64-bit architecture, limiting it to a few high-powered and UBER expensive servers. AMD's 64-bit chip uses x86, which makes it backwards-compatible, though you still need to get 64-bit designed software to take full advantage of it. The fact that Intel is going backwards in their desisions (they had said their Itaniums would be the future) means they are kinda conceding a defeat to AMD, although you wouldn't know it the way their marketing system is working.
