    Intel and Intel (I seem to update yearly, not on purpose though). AMD have been making crap for the last year or two, they are miles behind in processors, and still a little behind in GPUs. If only the days of the Athlon XP vs. P4 were still relevant, so much simpler.

    Intel, for intel rules. But I thought the Notebook nahelm will be called Capella. Not Auburndale?

    Auburndale is a 45nm laptop processor and Calpella is the platform. Westmere is 32nm and also fits in there somewhere. I am confused again! :confused:

    Like everyone else, the answer is Intel. No doubt about that

    No, no, and no.

    Capella is the sixth generation platform of Centrino.

    Auburndale is the laptop verison of the CPGPU chip. It will most likely run on the Capella platform.

    There is also Gilo, which is the dual and quad core mobile Nehalem chip, that does not feature an on-die GPU.

    Westmire (formerly Nehalem-C) is to Nehalem as Penryn is to Core 2, or simply, Westmire is the 32nm family of the Nehalem design. A shrink, not a different design or chip.

    Intel and Intel (duh....)

    However, I think the mobile version of Nehalem is going to be the Gilo processor and the Capella platform. Auburndale is the version of Nehalem with the CPGPU for notebooks....
