If AMD had something comparable and they offered unlocked and intel did not, I could see intel thinking they better offer unlocked. As there was no parity in performance, intel had no reason other than trying to tweak the market they already owned.

AMD just hasn't been a force of comeptition since Core2 launched. Competition can keep prices down and drive innovation, but not if it's weaksauce competition.

I think buying ATi crippled AMD to an extent they just could not recover.
