    based on very old.

    I am trying to form a sentence. Would you help me form it? Is it correct and natural?

    "The competition between Intel and AMD is based on very early."

    Thank you.

    There is a competition between Intel and Amd. This competition starts in an early time. - A very old competition. Is it O.K now? If you get the idea, can you form that sentence now?

    Thank you.

    I think it is grammatical to say 'The competition between Intel and AMD started long ago'.
