1: a company which states it has a good multi-tasking processor, but utterly failed upon the release of dual core processors.

2:a company which sells computer related articles for about 2-3 times as much as they are worth.
guy1:Shit dude, I got an intel P-XE for 1600$
Guy2:too bad my economy x2 3800+ outperforms it in a lot of things and costs 1/4 as much.
Guy3:screw both of you, i got a x2 4800+ for 1k and it's ranked as the best thing on the market
guy1:I wish I didn't listen to the tech guy at best buy, i think he was a highschool drop out.

2:dude, your overclocked pentium4 is reaching 70degrees C, maybe you could backwards engineer it and sell it world wide as an overpriced heater...

1. A large company in-line with microsoft for world domination and used to produce massively over priced computer chips until AMD came along and helped break their monopoly.

2. Slang for intelligence
Why buy an Intel based computer when I can buy an AMD at half the price.

The CIA thought they had good intel on the "terrorists" until they realized they were spying on other members of the CIA in disguise. After realizing this, they blew up a Mosque, arrested a few Iraqi bystanders, called them terrorists, and demanded more funding from the US budget.

Computer hardware company who are constantly advertising whatever expensive, overstated pentium crap they're pushing at that time. Strangely, my old intel pc never crashed until after I'd had it for three years.
French ICBM heading to springfield- intel inside.

A micro-processor (and other hardware components) manufacturer that needs to taught the meaning of the word innovation. In this respect, rival AMD is no better, having produced absolutely nothing original since its creation. Competition is currently so cut-throat that both companies are shit-scared of each other, trying to cover their asses from the next big dud (HyperThreading anyone?).
Now that clock-speed mania has finally subsided, both companies are rushing to finalise production of affordable 1st-generation dual-core PCs. A sensible prediction would be that the Intel Smithfield core will be obscenely expensive but will most definitely outperform AMD's dual-core answer (and yes, I do realise that current stats show otherwise). To top off with the proverbial icing on the cake, both companies capitalise on enthusiast hype to market their bloody awful technology which has been sucking shit through a straw for the past 10 years (much longer for Intel). Neither of these two giants have the foresight to invest in something more feasible for the 21st century; more specifically, quantum processing.
The companies have tremendous fan-following (most of the fans being utterly fucked in the head) despite their childish one-upmanship which has been going on for seemingly an eternity.
Intel released the world's first 64-bit commercial micro-processor, naming it the Itanium. Guess what? It was the biggest piece of steaming crap since Apple's Macintosh OS.

AMD has rummaged through Intel's trashbin since the dawn of the company, and has proven to be exceedingly good at sorting through filth, copying everything Intel has created to date.

Both idiot-companies are still pushing the 25 year old binary processor architecture, by waging an electron-pushing war.
