    i think wat ur friend was reffering to the older version
    Athlon XP
    known for their overheating issues and all
    but the current crop
    Athlon64's run cooler than their intel counterparts
    and are the best in the market

    True .. AMD's athlon 64 series processors which runs on Venice Core are cooler than intel's p4s

    Hey athlon XP processors are also cooler man.

    That guy might be referring to the old AMD K6 processors.They were hotter due to poor CPU fan provided by AMD.

    where as at that time Intel CPU fan was much more compact in design and could cool the processor better.Thats why in the olden days people dint prefer AMD.


    But now actually AMD CPUs are much cooler to Intel CPUs.

    maybe he was trying to tell u that apps will have a compatibility issue with Windows XP X64 version. maybe he thought amd 64 means windows 64 too. tell him u can run amd on windows X32 too.
