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.

"Points"? Also, the comparison means absolutely nothing.

I doubt if AMD will unseat Intel anytime soon, but it's great to see they are long out of the times where their future was in doubt and subject to the whims of speculative investors. They look solid now and look to stay that way for awhile. Great news for all consumers.

With Intel getting on the ball with better design architectures, the next couple of years might really be something special. Go AMD! Go Intel!
