The reason Intel has that huge revenue stream is because of their "jingle" and "Intel Inside" marketing. They don't care if an OCN member buys their product or AMD's.
Surely you realize that there are 100's even thousands like him that will be going Intel instead, and are tired of waiting for BD.
I've been waiting 6 months to build my 2nd rig, 'cuz I wanted to see what BD is bringing to the table. But if BD is truly delayed, I'm building it with a 2600K instead.
While BD is delayed, I'm sure Intel is making deals left and right with OEM's to use Sandy Bridge.
Heck, iMac's, Mac Pro's are using SB, Dell's thinnest laptop is using SB, HP, Alienware and all other major brands are already using SB.
Is it any coincidence that Intel has 80% market share? While ALL we hear from AMD are delays, and lack of information about BD.
Look at Intel, they had a recall, and they bounced back within weeks. That would've been a perfect time for BD to launch. What did AMD do?
We have the Phenom II, Ready, Willing and Stable.
They even went as far and made fun of Intel when they had the recall.Edited by 2010rig - 5/25/11 at 2:54pm
