Those prices, if they are truly the end-user prices, are no doubt full of win. Now it's all up to matching and beating SB's performance. Whether it wins or not, I'm happy, because Intel will most likely lower their prices and that will be the time I strike for a new build, going with whoever has the best performance for price.
It's win-win for fanboys of either side.
AMD is a success: AMD fanboys are happy, Intel lowers prices to compete, Intel fanboys are happy.
AMD is a failure: Intel doesn't drop prices, but Intel fanboys are happy that Intel is still on top, and AMD fanboys are happy with the lower prices.
I've never used the word fanboy so much. Fanboy.Edited by Stealth Pyros - 5/24/11 at 7:48am
