I don't buy into the whole "If AMD goes, intel and NVIDIA will put the screws to us!" position.

intel and NVIDIA need us to keep buying their products on a regular basis to keep their doors open, so they can't just say "Haha, you are all screwed. Our new price points are $1000,$2000, and $3000, pay it or do without.".

The number of people who would pay that would be too small to cover their overhead. (especially in a world wide recession)
