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.

INTEL IS BETTER & CHEAPER!!!

AMD takes basic INTEL design & strips its guts out, so it will run "faster". Well, you pay (& believe you posses) for "speed" thats not there & worse, processor thats missing much of its' finery is not as stable.Amd states Processors work as if xxxx+ mhz, well it dosn't run that fast nor work that well at all. Less external input makes it ok in server market, where "blaze" is simply repetitive tasking 24/7, not as well on desktop/workstation with impossible tasking(s) of all sorts just coming up at any 'ole time.INTEL can really design circuits.Even if they are kind of crumily done at first.
Less heat Plus more transistors mean faster & better. In few more steps to 32 nm then 22 to 17 nm & developements should be quality of design issue, not just size. I await day poor desktop user dosn't have to spend years figuring all needed changes out & can just use computer, leaving better & faster to sever & workstation crowd.

That's nice Dr. Von Brashek...
But ya sound like a fanboy to me...
So Dr. Fanboy... Was it AMD or Intel who stepped forward to brought the world 64-bit computing? Was it AMD or Intel who brought us the integrated memory controller? The dual core CPU? My current CPU (a dated Athlon 64 3200+ William. core) has performed quite well for me, as did the CPU I had before this one (an Intel 2.4 Ghz 533MHZ FSB P4) Both of them have been great products, will neither of them "wishing I had gone for the other guy". I have gone back and forth between Intel and AMD CPUs... and have been happy either direction. Both companies offer dazzling products... both of which get the job done when it comes to my requirements. Sometimes Intel has the "best of the best"... sometimes, it’s AMD. The Pentium 2 led the pack for CPUs in its day, (though I never could afford one... HORRAY for over clocked Celerons! Good 'ol Slot loaded Celeron 300Mhz... what a great CPU) until dethroned by the original Athlon. The Athlon XP (IMHO) did not stand a chance against the second gen P4s... My Athlon 64 kicks most P4s rear ends... except for that P4 EE... Which now has been surpassed by the X2... And back and forth we go...
The point is, one guy will lead the race for a few moments... but then will be surpassed by the competition. This is what drive innovation and brings prices down. Competition... is it not the most marvelous thing on earth?

I think that line alone gives a clue that Herr Dr. really doesn't understand computers...

Yeah, where did that even come from! Ha
