"It used to be that there was only one possible choice for a CPU in the world and that, of course, was Intel. Having no successful competitors until recent years, why would anyone make a decision to go with another company when they could just as easily buy from the people who started the entire speed revolution? There was Cyrix, who catered to the budget consumer that didn't care about performance, or if the machine could play Quake or not. Even IBM passed through the market at this level before moving on to the higher end business with its super-computing chips. Bringing up the rear was AMD, the small company who had chips comparable to Intel, but always seemed to push them somewhat slower to market. AMD was also known to have very limited supplies of its products and remained isolated to the OEM scene. Today's market is centered on these two high stakes competitors; Cyrix is still here, somewhere beneath the clock speed and price-cut driven CPU wars, keeping silent and out of the race. That leaves us with only two competitors in the struggle for the top: AMD's Athlon line, starting with the K7 core and moving up to the Thunderbird and the Duron; and Intel and its PIII line, from the Pentium III to the Coppermine.
