movement in the overclocking world - FrostyTech.com movement in the overclocking world

AMD have always been close to Intel in the low-end CPU group. Their K6-2 & 3 has usually been just below the Intel Celeron. Now they are also a player in the current high-end CPU market, where the two giants fight it out with their flagship processors, namely the AMD Athlon Thunderbird and Intel Pentium IV. Gone are the days of Intel ruling the performance market, now AMD are the daddies, as is shown by the various shootouts conducted on the net, where AXIA 1ghz Thunderbirds overclocked to 1.3 and above have beaten the P4 clocked at 1.7ghz! My prediction is that this situation may change however, when more and more programs are programmed with SSE2 instructions in mind, and if Intel lower the prices, P4 will become a viable option. But at the current state of play, you cant get better than an overclocked thunderbird. This is astounding considering the price of a TBird 1ghz (~£150) to that of a P4 (~£350).
