As far as 6 years, not so. It wasn't until the Core Duo that Intel was still licking their wound in the desktop market.

AMD's advancement into the true 32/64 bit CPU put Intel in it's place for about 2 years. Not to bad for the little guy underdog. Amazing what upping the Ops cycle by 50% did... among advancements like the OB MEM controler.
Then AMD was foolish enough to trade with Intel so that Intel could get off their lame butt having not a TRUE 32/64 bit CPU and attained the tech from AMD so to be able to also produce said 32/64 bit products. With that Intel figured out how to up the OPS cycle and AMD was back to second place.
So, the reality of Intel is 'There's AMD Inside'

The Dozer is alleged to shine in that same way, we'll see and time will tell.

intel - copycat company

1. multicore (intel told back then-nobody needs this)
2. HyperTransport , goodbye FSB (same here) QPI
3. integ.mem. controller (nice example)
3. AMD64 - this is the fun part, first it was given "sneaky" EM64T name, now "intel64"
..

Intel came up with x86 in the first place, I think a little respect is owed to that fact. Despite your blatant hate for the company that created the very thing you seem to like.


AMD has innovated in several areas well, Intel has pushed the envelope of what those innovations could do.

Both companies are pretty awesome, imo.

Why such anger about this?

The market is big enough for 2 companies. If you are an intel fan you should want AMD to succeed. The products that you have today are around because AMD is applying pressure. Don't believe it? Think about what you used to pay and how little you got in the past when AMD was not competitive.

Competition is good, that is how customers get the best stuff.
