Well, hopefully they will recover from that. They've been beaten pretty hard before and still pulled through. Here's hoping that they will manage to pull through yet again.

That's what intel did before they released the Core 2's to the market. Perhaps this is a sign of things to come from AMD.

IMO, I think there holding off the GPU & CPU till the 2nd quarter, so they can come on strong and make up for the 1st quarter losses. the big bang effect, just a thought.

That's why I want to at least get a decent Core 2 Duo before Intel hype up their prices to an unaffordable level.

I do not understand where this idea has come from. Can you please elaborate?

Prices on CPU's come down...not go up?

I've never seen 1000 lot prices increase after initial inception of a product, especially not 6-months to a year later.

Whats odd is I believe CPU's are not AMD's main market. They do alot of microcontrollers and other IC applications for industrial machines. At least I see the AMD logo on a ton of microcontollers when I am working on some things at work I hope AMD comes through with a knock out on Intel. Not that I want to switch motherboards and CPU's again (which I will do for whoever is king)... but because I want AMD to keep Intel on thier toes and keep the prices low and hopefully keep nVida from raping us on prices.
