Actually what I said still applies. Yes the ratio of die size to prices was roughly equivalent, but what if they had split the difference and pocketed another $75/chip? Once you get people expecting to pay much less for your products, hard to go back to higher prices.

Or are you saying AMD didn't need the money?
