But this is all speculation. Perhaps AMD or Intel for that matter could have an unforeseen revolutionary breakthrough.
which is why i said "seems to be"
I don't pretend to know everything about the future of the CPU industry, but we can only make comments based on what we know and think we know. What we know at the present time points towards AMD falling behind technologically. That's all that I am saying.
While it is true that there could be some revolutionary breakthrough ahead - you cannot introduce this as a possibility if there is to be any discussion at all about the future of the industry. What I am doing is making predictions based on what I know and what I believe that I know. Once you say, well - there could be something that we don't know about so you can't say anything about anything, it becomes impossible to continue the discussion
of course there could be something lurking in the shadows - who saw conroe coming? as a matter of discussion, however, we have to work based off of what we know
