AMD entered 2003 with more to lose than ever before. The company commands a healthy share of the desktop and notebook chip market, with just under 20 percent -- the best figure it has enjoyed in the last few years. Now, AMD plans a slew of new product releases that could sway its fortunes for good or ill. On tap: a suite of mobile chips; a 64-bit desktop processor; and a 64-bit server chip. Will AMD rise above the challenges that face it to emerge stronger than ever, or will it stumble and fall behind?
What this article fails to mention is that an Athlon CPU at 2.2 gigahertz preforms comparably to a Pentium 4 running at 3.06 gigahertz. Not mentioning this makes AMD appear far behind in the performance race, which is simply not the case. They have always been a serious contender to Intel, releasing products that could be considered very competitive.
