quote: I personally am a fanboy of whatever gives me the best price/performance ratio
quote: Unless you want your C2D chip to cost 3x what it does now.
quote: Quote of the century... You call a bunch of guys in blue body paint jumping around on your TV screen "fantastic"? I see you are easily amused. Marketing played a role but it was maily brand loyalty. I can tell you of hundreds of computers I know were sold over a better performing AMD solely because they said "Intel Inside" on the front. People were going "Who's this AMD company" or "Aren't they the ones who had thos knockoff 486 chips?"
quote: The implied criminals at AMD who "steal" market share from Intel would be back in the game.
quote: If AMD wants to sell chips for a loss, more power to them
quote: AMD is bordering on "dumping" at the price some of their processors sell for and Intel might be able to sue them for it. (I would laugh long and hard if they did) Right now AMD is likely (or damn close to it) selling some processors at a loss, while Intel is still making a decent margin on each processor sold (45nm will increase that for Intel).
quote: AMD while not competition on the high end is a threat to Intel in the budget market right now.
quote: I don't see how lackluster performance at the launch of a completely new architecture really helps AMD very much.
quote: lack any real knowledge of how big businesses work
quote: start wondering what INTEL was doing to even let AMD get ahead before Core 2 DUO.
quote: I hope AMD dies because the are stupid and lazy.
