Intel Core 2 Duo better than AMD price/performance wise

TG Daily writes the Intel Core 2 Duo is better than AMD's offerings:
processor prices, before and since Intel's announcement of Core 2 Duo and Core 2 Extreme processors. Just before the announcement, AMD officials promised they would reduce prices to meet or beat the price/performance curve set by Intel. Since that time - at least with regard to the Athlon 64 X2 series - AMD has succeeded, by TG Daily's calculation.

But lost amid that part of the analysis is the flip side of the data: If the shoe were to be placed on the other foot, as it were, Intel's Core 2 Duo and Core 2 Extreme desktop processor prices would fall well below the price performance curve set by AMD, according to today's data from PriceGrabber and Froogle.
