We have just published our article titled AMD vs Intel: $50 Dual Core War. As you can guess, it pits one CPU from each manufacturer that retails for $50 at most online shops. In this case, it’s the AMD Ahtlon 64 X2 4200+ (2.2 GHz) taking on the Intel Celeron Dual Core E1200 (1.6 GHz)
Of course, simply comparing them would be boring, and pretty much useless for our readers. After all, who in their right mind would run a $50 CPU at stock speed? Nobody, that’s who! That’s why we overclocked each processor as far as it would go, and compared them at those speeds.
The result of the overclocking brings each CPU well past 3 GHz (with the Celeron running at more than double its rated clock speed), so the battle becomes much more intriguing.
