While I would agree that they seem to be making leaps and bounds graphically and challenging Nvidia for the first time since the 8800 series was released, there's still no indication that AMD can seriously compete with Intel in the desktop and notebook CPU or chipset markets. Intel has simply been too far ahead of them in R&D since they implemented their "tick-tock" roadmap.
i agree, kinda.....
to the normal joe smoe buying a pc, or laptop, price is the key factor, not can this run crysis at so and so fps, so the AMD being cheaper, id say the norm is more likely to go with the amd system
and they have quarterly losses, what company doesnt?
to me, its all spin to help eaither other out, intel and amd know they are the only 2 desktop/laptop proc maker
so they spin each other around to get more hype, and more buys
someday this year we will see where amd takes over and its z0mgwtfbbq amd is soooo hawt
then a few years, intel......
