I don't understand the real diff in performance between AMD and Intel procs. I do know that the four core Intel i-5 CPU that replaced my two core AMD proc running at the same speed is much faster. Yet any encouragement from AMD for Intel to drop their prices is most welcome!

Makes me wonder what the potential prices of their next line of Opterons will be. Looking forward to their next lineup of them for socket AM3+.

Hope springs eternal! AMD has pulled hot irons from the fire in the past...

AMD's in a catch-22; they need to be more profitable so that they can develop more competitive chips, but they need more competitive chips so that they can be more profitable.

AMD's a bottom-dweller in the market; always has been. That's unfortunate, but it's also reality. And making profit as a bottom-feeder is extremely difficult.

I agree, but Like to remember that just one spark of true brilliance in one AMD researchers mind...can change the whole ball game...yes?
