And that's a good thing!

I wonder how much of it is in fact due to the latest offerings for desktop chips from Intel and AMD vs. laptop and netbook sales.

It's too bad alot of those reports are misleading on purpose. Sure, they both had a great year, what's not in there is that most of that large boom was spurred on by the large amount of GPU sales from AMD/nVidia and after that picked up the amount of netbook/notebook sales that lead to those CPU sales. What I would really like to see from Intel is a breakdown of the numbers, like how many 1366 or 1156 processors were sold vs the older 775's.

If the new socket processor sales in quantites were compared to overall totaly of lga 775 processors lga 775 would win.

But if it was all compared in 2009 all together the new sockets might still loose that your to lga 775 but you never know. I know LGA 775 quads and duals were strong for q1-q2 probably, but def lost track q3- and q4 2009 so you never know :)


Lol look at my post I GOT 666 POST ZOMG IM COOL!
