right now its Intel  specially the HT ones

Well the HT is only program specific, just like AMD's 64 bit. Do you have any programs that use HT? I didn't know of any that have come out except for like Photoshop.

But AMD's HT (Hyper Transport) owns all. It will make new I/O devices communicate at around 13 Gb/s!

AMD 64's definately.

The Intel Prescotts as of right now suck, but they might be better later. The Pentium4's initial release sucked too, then we got the 478 core and they got way better.

AMD of course, in reality, if you will make it comparison, speed "per" Mhz (Err. bang per mhz... XD), then AMD's is definitely faster........ Because in reality AMD's processor's are a whole lot slower Mhz wise, but is still very competitive to Intel Processors.

As for Cyrix.... After trying out the M3, bleh, a perfectly configured K6-3 processor is faster of exact clock speeds, believe it or not....... :D

Anyway, whats the news on the current, fastest, latest processors?

Well MHZ-wise. The AMD Athlon FX-51 performs better though, atleast in games (where it counts :D)

Pentiums are always clocked higher and people are like "OH MY GOD! IT's 3.4GHZ! IT MUST BE FASTER!" Which is untrue. AMD's are not clocked as high at Pentiums, but preform faster.

The whole clockspeed is very misleading.

And why you picked Cyrix? I dunno, that thing sucks. I'd put it on a sucky level with the Celeron core.
