    AMD and Intel Equivalents

    for a long time i've been wondering this.

    are these sort-of the equivalents of each company?

    amd sempron = intel celeron
    amd athlon xp = intel pentium 4
    amd athlon 64 = intel core duo
    amd athlon 64x2 = intel core 2 duo
    amd turion = intel centrino

    ??????????????

    Okay so here are the real equivalents after my knowledge was corrected:

    amd sempron = intel celeron
    amd athlon xp = intel pentium 4
    amd athlon 64 = intel pentium 4 (with 64-bit extensions)
    amd athlon 64x2 = intel core duo
    amd turion = intel pentium M or Core Solo

    intel core 2 duo = faster than any amd processor

    that looks pretty good but it's more confusing than that i think.

    the "newer" semprons are actually old athlon xp cores
    or some might even be athlon 64 cores with 64 bit disabled.

    I'm more familiar with amd than intel.

    Also,
    athlon 64 = pentium 4 with 64 bit extensions

    I wouldn't say that there are any AMD equivalents to Core Duo, given that it is outperforming their socks off!

    hence my words "sort-of-equivalents"

    Centrino is not a cpu it is a package of a chipset, cpu type and wireless.

    Would be turion = pentium M
    As long as pentium M cpus are created. It is core solo these days.
    Why can't technology be as simple as the box it comes in ?

    VAIO X505 800g pure Debian.

    Erm centrino is a brand, used for Intel notebooks it has 3 components the cpu the chipset and the wireless adapter.
    If you do not use any of the 3 components intel "recommends" you can't sell it as a centrino notebook.

    This is how intel enforeces to use it's wireless.

    ok, but is the wireless component wi-fi, or satellite, or bluetooth,or what?
