Intel vs. AMD: An Epic Continues

Filed under
Hardware

For years, Intel Corp. and Advanced Micro Devices Inc. have battled each other in the x86-based microprocessor business.

But in 2005, Intel verses AMD reached epic proportions: Call it a new and memorable chapter in the ongoing battle between the semiconductor industry’s version of David and Goliath.

In 2005, AMD smacked mighty Intel with a stone from its proverbial slingshot, sending the microprocessor giant back on its heels - at least temporarily. Microprocessor supplier AMD scored a minor victory in its long uphill fight to wrestle the processor market from Intel, as the company overtook its archrival in the U.S. retail PC sector in October, according to market research firm Current Analysis.

Intel took AMD’s best shots in 2005, including a lawsuit, a slew of antitrust complaints and the ongoing introductions of arguably a better microprocessor design for servers. Yet Intel regained its balance and is still standing, vowing to fire back with a vengeance with products at the 65-nm node in 2006.

Needless to say, it was a memorable year for the two companies.
