VIA should emerge out of nowhere now biggrin.gif

But this is bad news for everybody.

Meh, I personally don't want this. Sure it might be the best move for the company, but as soon as it leaves that market it will also leave my interests.

What about Nvidias desktop processor? I'm interested in seeing that.
post #14 of 349
If this means AMD is going to get involved in ARM in some way, and with Windows 8 going ARM as well... this might actually be a good thing. I've been dying for the PC market to move on to an architecture that has lots of competition (and comparatively easy entry to the market) instead of just three companies, one of which is failing and the other nobody knows of.

Nah, Intel isn't stupid. Pricing them that high would a) hasten an anti-monopoly ruling against them by the Justice Department, and b) would cause them to lose business as 99% of consumers simply don't have the money to drop $3,000 on a computer. Even assuming that a DoJ ruling weren't an issue, people would just buy used systems from eBay and craigslist instead of buying new if prices were raised that high.

 

Monopolies sometimes lead to higher prices, but not always. The price of kerosene actually dropped something like 80% back when Standard Oil controlled the petroleum industry, and it was Standard's ability to price their product lower than the competitors that drove away the competition and put them out of business.

 

In the tech business, the main negative aspect of monopolies is stagnation and lack of innovation, since the absence of competition removes the impetus to develop a better product as quickly as possible. CPUs in an Intel monopoly would likely not be priced much higher than they are now (and they might even be cheaper) but they'd retain current performance levels for far, far longer. Think, 50% higher performance than Sandy Bridge-EP...in 5 years.

This is what happens with the business world. These tech companies are especially hard to keep going strong, not only do you have to excel at what you do....you had better make sure you can see 5 years into the future too.


It's unfortunate if this is true, the market will be dominated my Samsung, Nvidia, ARM. I'm sorry but unless AMD can pull something that punches their rivals quad core mobile solutions in the next few weeks...

Sigh, i totally knew this was coming, they said earlier last year they weren't going to be competitive in the CPU market, no source, probably wont take me word and flame me.
It is truly disappointing though, wow, i'm never buying an intel cpu, so bye bye computer for me ^^.

"AMD shifting competitive focus away from Intel in 2012"

I may not have bought this first line of Bulldozer processors... but for the first time in more than 6 years, I've decided to build an AMD system to help their cause (my last AMD computer was an Athlon XP 3200+). I also made sure to buy an AM3+ board, so that when the new architecture matures, I can upgrade.

This is a huge disappointment. I don't even want to imagine what kind of nonsensical pricing Intel is going to gouge us with in the years ahead.

Wow this is sad, but expected. They just cannot keep up with Intel unfortunately. I moved to Intel a few months back because of that. Well I hope they still carry on with their GPU market...
AMD, your CPU's may die, but I'll always have the memories. sad-smiley-002.gif
