3 Big data security analytics techniques

Intel will have to act fast to regain the initiative in the price battle it has waged with AMD during 1999. According to Bill Henning at CPU Review, the latest set of figures he has collated on Athlon vs Pentium III prices show that AMD is winning the battle hands down. Henning states that AMD K7 Athlons are now cheaper than Pentium IIIs at all clock speeds, with a 700MHz Athlon coming nearly $140 cheaper than a Pentium III 700MHz chip. He also gives the cost difference for the whole set of clock speeds so far available, which demonstrates that the percentage difference amounts to around 10 per cent, with the Athlon 550MHz being 19 per cent cheaper than the equivalent Pentium III part. We don't think Chipzilla is going to lie down and let Chimpzilla stomp all over its customer base, however. When Coppermine production ramps up a tad, expect nature red in tooth and claw but blue in logo to fight back very aggressively on the price front. ® See also AMD, likely to beat Intel, Alpha for 1GHz crown AMD wins major price battle in Intel war
