Roland Waddilove certainly seems unaware of the latest generation of AMD FX processors. The FX-4300 which he implies is top of the range is a quad-core and AMD now have six core processors (comparable to a high-end core i5) and eight-core processors (comparable to a mid-range core i7).
I've answered this is in another thread, but basically I pointed out that the article was a brief overview of processor choices and lack of space meant I couldn't go into detail about specific CPUs. Intel dominates the market and some companies, such as Dell and Apple, don't even offer AMD as an option. The bias towards Intel in the article reflects the market and if I'd had 3000 words I could have explored the subject, both Intel and AMD, in more detail.
PS. I don't sell advertising. I buy, use and write about technology.
Well, at least you've stuck your head above the parapet.
If, as you say, you were short of space, then I would suggest that your choice of Headline/Title was misleading in the extreme "AMD or Intel: which processor is best?"
Now it maybe that Intel has cornered the market but that does not mean that all it's processors are "Best". It just means that its Sales Force are better prepared.
Even with 1000 words at your beck and call, it really should be possible to offer some sort comparison and your excuse does not really hold water as, although my Journalistic experience is limited to Music & Restaurant Crits in Time Out, even I can recognise padding when I see it.
