Analysts and investors begin favoring AMD over Intel thanks to excellent growth and products
Forbes is reporting
that according to both technology advances and market share gains, AMD is expected to shoot past Intel in company performance and growth from now into 2007. AMD over the last couple of quarters has performed superbly, with good pricing and even better product offerings. Market share has risen significantly and even AMD's stock has jumped from about 36 points to 41 points within a week. Intel's price per share remains around 21 points.
Analysts are also predicting that Intel will not have the ability to catch up to AMD until Intel releases products on new 45nm fabrication processes, which isn't expected until 2008 claims Forbes. We reported earlier that
AMD is transitioning its Fab 36
in Dresden to mass produce its next generation processors (both dual-core and quad-core) on a 65nm process. Intel on the other hand, has demonstrated that it has successfully started
working on 45nm technology
but its main production will be 65nm through to 2008.

for the last 5 years. I doubt AMD has the $$$$ to challenge Intel. All Intel has to do to make thier performance per watt is go mobile chips for everything (its working for apple). Ya I know lower power transitors would cost Intel more but they got enought money to feed the world for a few years, so they could pull it off. Personally I feel AMD's only hope is to win their lawsuit agianst Intel, if they dont its a sad day for us all.
Sorry and /end rant.

Intel's chance to smoothly switch to using mobile processors came and went with the Pentium M
These new Core Duo's are good, but they just dont do the same task that Pentium 4's are doing now. The only advantage the P4 chips have had is their advantage in ghz. Switching to core Duo basically strips Intel of this and invalidates 4 years of marketing.
Also whle the Core Duo is a good processor, it's aim was always on power saving then performance. The chip would simply be a step backwards as far as consumers and the intdustry would be concerned. Maybe with the sucessor to Merom we will see something that can be widely rolled out desktops.
Apple have a real advantage because they already use essentually laptop components in their desktops. Bar the G5 cube all the Apple computers are small form factor. They get a exactly what they want in the new Core Duo, an increase in performance and a reduction in power usage. Intel dont really need the reduction in power usage as much as they need to catch AMD in performance.

I understand your Points but you cant say that Intel doesnt have the money to go mobile for all its chips and make AMD look like schmucks.
