QFT!

That's what's going to happen, Barcelona will be very expensive, after all, AMD will want their money back and I doubt they'll be willing to lose money just to keep their cheer leading squad of fanboys happy.

Intel just cares about themselves, that's why they're cutting the prices so ridiculously low, they want AMD to go near bankrupt and so do I, except I want AMD to disappear from the face of the earth and take every AMD fanboy with them.

It's unfortunate that this is happening in terms of competition but frankly, as HornyGoat said, AMD brought it onto themselves by aiming low and sue Intel becasuse of monopoly when "in fact" AMD just can't, again, can't compete in terms of volume and price competition, here, I luv this article: Intel Comes Out Swinging in Response to AMD
Let me quote a few paragraphs:

Quote:
Intel said AMD has a reputation for being an unreliable supplier.
Under the cover of competition law, AMD seeks to shield itself from competition. AMD seeks to impede Intel's ability to lower prices and thereby to allow AMD to charge higher prices. AMD's colorful language and fanciful claims cannot obscure AMD's goal of shielding AMD from price competition."
Intel said AMD has "a history (of) manufacturing snafus that led it to cut off microprocessor supplies to many customers, making it difficult to regain share and crippling earnings."
Remember how overprices those X2 were? So, Barcelona will be way overpriced compared to Q6xx's, so blame it on Intel for AMD's inability to compete, since that they were the ones suing Intel........they got what they deserved.

The problem is here, why Intel would want AMD to die so bad?
Maybe because they hit the wall with their technology and they don't have the next step and AMD does?
Nanometers shouldn't matter in this case...
I'll keep buying ONLY Intel, as I've been doing it, I'm extremely proud to say that I have not and will not ever buy AMD. So, Intel does have a new tech for the 32nm, just in case you didn't know. And nm does matter, because it yields better power consumption and in the case of 32nm, it will bring new tech to Intel.

What? you think AMD didn't team up with IBM and several other companies to come up with better tech than Intel? Ain't nobody stopping AMD from fighting, but themselves and clearly, they can't.

Intel chipsets are the best on the market FYI. Just because you can't slap two (useless anyway) nVidia cards together doesn't meant they are not the best, nForce 4 and 5 were crap, 6 is decent, nonetheless they're still crap and VIA and SiS just didn't compare to Intel's. BTW, it's nVidia's fault that Intel chipsets don't have SLI support, because they can do SLI easy, as they can do CrossFire, except ATI's dual video card is crap compared to SLI.

QFT!, Except AMD it's one of those companies that like to keep they fanboy base happy, except now they can't. They lowered the prices on the overpriced X2s but that didn't stop some non-hard core amd fanboys from getting C2Ds.

Is that a trick question?
C2Ds are by far better overall, even the E4300.


I'm getting me a Q6600!
