Right but that doesn’t mean this wont change within a few years or however long it might “theoretically” take for a competitor to match or overtake them in this segment of the market. Keep in mind while AMD seems no longer willing to compete with Intel in the performance desktop arena, Intel has made no such concessions on the APU platform (as far as I know but I guess I could be wrong there). AMD may need every bit of their current lead in this respect. Honestly, its not as if AMD never had a performance lead over Intel before,….and lost it. Also as I was trying to suggest before, ARM may overtake x86 in the mobile market significantly in the future (phones, tablets and yes laptops or even in some cases servers). If that happens, what good is AMD’s APU lead assuming that lead isn’t wrestled away from them by a competitor like Intel that has considerably superior financial recourses. Its been rumored that Apple will move OS X to ARM architecture and we already know Microsoft is hard at work on Windows 8 on ARM. Who knows which way the wind will blow,….?
