    may be they will share their income with AMD since Intel is doing so well
    or anti-trust lawsuit will result in that :laugh:

    This is good news as a sizable chuck of the tech portion of my mutual funds are invested in Intel.

    As far as AMD goes, they need to lock the doors, turn off the lights, take the phones off the hook so they are not interrupted and come up with something so innovative that it will shake the foundation of CPUs as we know them. They should sell ATI outright so both companies can take seperate paths uninhibited by the other.

    Then once they on the throne again, they should stop with the "permutation" attitude of just trying to pump up the line a little, and make each new processor a truely "next generation" leap.

    Okay, so maybe I am a bit idealistic :D

    i still think ATI purchase has its benefits, I'm not saying it was worth buying, but it has its benefits that AMD might exploit

    oh kno he didnt? oh yes he did. call the bluff.

    and you know what is the worst thing about the amd supporters ... they are making it seem as if AMD wants to sell these things for cheap ... if the C2D never drop you'd all still be paying 269 dollars for a 5200 X2

    Vice versa on the prices, homie. Recall the days before Athlon 64?

    And no one was talking about O/Cing for a grandpa (not that it's hard, all too easy these days for moderate O/C).

    Too hard... as in to match the above mensioned processor?? I think it would take a pretty expensive AMD cpu and one hell of an overclock to beat a 3.2ghz C2D. Definatly not in the <£50 range.

    AMD are getting :nutkick: in both high-end and budget market segments performance wise.

    and you were crying yourself to sleep the whole time pentium 4 was out.

    It's funny to see who's the bandwagon hopper as time goes by.
    Either you claimed not to care back then when intel got the shit stomped out of them or you're a trendy bitch. It's one or the other.

    Who says everyone needs 3.2GHz of C2D power? Hell I never used everything my 5200+ had to offer yet except when I was folding.

    And yes, if Intel wasn't beating the shit out of AMD right now I bet AMD would be pricing thier processors just as Intel are pricing thiers. Do I think the Q6600 is worth almost $250 retail today? Hell no. Do I think the 5200+ is worth $269 as IRA FBI said? No wai.
