Dear CPU Scorekeeper

Why don't you like the Intel processors??

Or is just that you think they are overpriced for what they deliver???

We at The CPU Scorecard do not, as a rule, dislike Intel processors. On the contrary, it is our opinion that Intel has deservedly won its top spot in the CPU market because, until recently, it has always powered the fastest PCs. Our CPU Scorecard benchmarks are based on the most objective and accurate numbers we can compile. The ranking of Intel's processors within our lists will always reflect these cold, hard measurements.

What may be reflected in some of our editorial tone is a preference for a healthy, competitive marketplace where alternative technologies can compete fairly without undo interference from the market leaders.

Intel has held this leadership role because it has arguably had the best technology and foresight in the industry. It is our view that, because of its position, the corporate Intel (as well as AMD, VIA, and the rest) thus has an increased responsibility to not only encourage a vibrant and diverse array of ideas for the benefit of its customers, but be seen to encourage it.

Under the closer scrutiny Intel's prominence attracts, it remains an open question whether they have always maintained this responsibility. We, as consumers, are the ultimate judge in this respect.
