Any idea how much the optimisation techniques for the latest AMD and Intel processors differ? I just want to know whether it''s worth starting with the Intel Optimisation book, if I''m only then going to have to learn AMD optimisation and then find that working with both is going to be a pain in the arse. Cheers.

I assume you mean Intel (P4) vs AMD (Athlon XP)?
Yes, they are different, however P4 optimization is also quite different from PIII/Celeron optimization. That said I would read up on either PIII or Athlon optimization and you''ll be pretty good for every chip on the market (including those no longer in production but still in use), except for the P4.
