Analysts: Athlon bests Pentium 4, Intel beats Transmeta

Author: JT Smith

From a PC World story about chip tests: "The Athlon's victory is just one of several that seems to indicate the analysts' preference
for chips with tried and true technologies over sweeping new designs. In addition to
choosing the Athlon instead of the P4, analysts picked Intel's Mobile Pentium III with
SpeedStep over Transmeta's much hyped but poorly reviewed Crusoe CPU, and Sun's
UltraSPARC III over Intel's highly anticipated new Itanium."
