What CPU is on the market that's 8 cores and under $300? AMD has that, would Intel be inferior there? Really it depends on the individual. They cost anywhere from 20-40% less than the competition for 10-20% less performance. I call that a winner, like ATI's GPU's.

I grabbed 2x 4870's for the cost of 1 GTX 285. Who is inferior? You can setup a decent server system with AMD CPU's that will perform better than intel dollar to dollar.

It's how the market is working. If you want a cheaper laptop for college. AMD wins -- If you need an intro gaming machine, AMD wins.

If you want utter performance, Intel wins. I merely corrected your argument about AMD screwing up... They have never screwed up, they just are not competing where people WANT them to compete at.... which is the performance segment.

People are only let down because they want more competition where AMD says they have no interest to compete. It'd cost them more money trying to compete with Intel then it would be to keep doing what they are doing.
Come on man. This is overclock.net. I was responding to a performance PC enthusiast claiming it was his fault for not sticking with AMD when AMD gave him no reason to stick with them. If what you're saying is true, then it is clearly AMD's fault for lack of competition to Intel in this market because they don't even want to compete, so how is it the guy who's up there blaming himself's fault? That was my argument the entire time.

I do not care about any other market. If I did, I would go to serverclock.net, or startingcollegeclock.net, or something like that.
