I've often heard this but am not sure how true it is.
For example- Intel's netburst architecture vs AMD's K8... if the netburst was 5 years old upon release, and the K8 was 5 years old upon release... why did it take Intel so long to release a competitive product? And why is it taking AMD so long to play catch up?
I think 5 years is a stretch, imo.
