The latest reports from system builders putting together the first Pentium 4 systems look very encouraging - for AMD.

A leading European PC maker confided to The Reg yesterday:

"If they think this compares to Athlon they are joking. At 1.5GHz the P4 is outperformed by a PIII 933, never mind an Athlon 1GHz which urinates in rather copious quantities over the oversized, overcomplicated piece of silicon."

Asked if this would affect the company's plans to build P4 systems, your man replied:

"We will sell them, because the Intel marketing machine will generate demand."

So come on, Chipzilla, start ramping up that marketing department. You might want to start by axing those ludicrous Blue Man TV ads and spending the cash on promoting P4 instead - looks like it's going to need some help... ®
