Well, it looks like there was no real AMD vs. Intel debate, cause nobody had any pro-Intel chatter. If anyone wants to start, and forecast an Intel future, feel free.

random_troll -
Athlon64 will be the "mainstream" line, and the AthlonXP is going to be bumped down to the "value" segment, and die awhile afterwards.

Game makers will most likely be providing "enhanced" features for the 64-bit processors. It's all about performance.

Should you upgrade? Hell, not right now. Thats like saying you should buy a XP2200+ cause its newest. But, in the future, you will probably want to get 64-bit, because it will fall into the "bang for the buck" sector of the market.

@zickfun

The Athlon64 and Opteron are going to both be Socket 940 at release. The Opteron and Athlon64 chips will be interchangable in any given motherboard.

And rumours have it that the debut A64 will just be a rebranded Opteron 1xx series.

Opteron motherboard with 8x AGP - http://www.amdboard.com/opteron_board_arima_hdamb.html

Eventually, the Athlon64 will get a new motherboard socket (939, then 754) to distance it from the Opteron.

No, they make CPUs. Other companies make the motherboards and systems using the CPUs.

I think Intel's gonna stay like it is to be honest... Their name is well known among the general public and AMD isn't. Plus, people can't understand that they could have the same MHz and the AMD runs better.
It's thinking...
