Multi-core chip rivals AMD and Intel have been beating their chests as of late , but to what end, I wonder, as developers labor to keep up.
AMD, for one, has fixed the embarrassing flaw that delayed the quad-core Barcelona chip. As Terry Malloy put it in On the Waterfront, so what?
Meanwhile, Intel and Microsoft pat themselves on the back because they've donated US$20 million to UC Berkley and the University of Illinois to found the Universal Parallel Computing Research Centers. Well, it's about time.

直接翻译成"拍胸脯"比较好.  

btw, this is not 不甘示弱.

The meaning here is different.
