ntel sits around and does nothing for the next year, year and a half

I figure, except for speed bumps, they will, just like they did with the P4 platform in general.

I think the bottom line guys like Targon would want to get across is at least that Intel doesn't have the absolute advantage. Intel fans are currently 'right', just like a broken clock is right twice a day, and are doing everything they can to relish it, but if K8L and 65nm speed-boosts really really come to bear some sweet fruit AMD will be right back in the game and, as almost always, with a lower overall platform cost or price/performance ratio.

And besides, elegance counts for something. If you dropped a V12 in a crapy early-90s Civic and it could do jaw-dropping quarter miles, I'd still take a sleek, elegant but slower competitor. :)

I wonder if you'd be saying the same about "elegance" if/when AMD released a two-cores-on-one CPU.
