Also called the CPU, or Central Processing Unit, the Processor determines the speed of the computer
For many years, Intel was king. AMD was barely a competitor. AMD chips
were known for not being as fast or as good at certain things as Intel
|Moore's Law, named for Intel co-founder Gordon
Moore, states that the number of transistors on a chip will double
approximately every two years.
Beginning with its K-6 processor, AMD began producing processors that
were on a par with Intel processors. Now AMD produces processors
that some say are better than the best Intel processors, and at a cheaper
Processor speed is measured in Megahertz (MHz) and Gigahertz (GHz).
faster the speed in of the processor (i.e. 2.0GHz), the faster the
computer, although other factors are involved.
Intel has been making quality processors for a long time
Their processors are of a high quality, but can be expensive.
AMD doesn't have quite the track record that Intel has.
AMDs current crop of processors is highly rated, and can be
