*In a fight typically you will want to hit somebody where you will inflict the most damage. Why would AMD focus so much time and money to take a couple bucks from intel in the high end market when they can probably inflict more damage in the larger more profitable low-mid range market?
If i were the CEO of AMD i would focus more on APU technology. As of now AMD/Intel are selling more chips for laptops then Desktops and Servers. Follow the money.
My example isnt stupid. If all i do i browse the web listen to some music and maybe work on a spread sheet or two i don't need quad-Sli Nvidia GTX 580's...
Maybe i should elaborate since you are so literal. I dont have a need to go over 65mph. My time isn't that valuable. Going fast only wears the tires quicker, Uses more gas, Destroys the engine quicker, Increases the chances of a fatal accident, And makes the ride uncomfortable. So i will buy what conforms to my needs.
You just proved my point many times, If AMD had the Money and Know-how they would make the best chip possible, in fact they do make the best chip they can. Which dosent even come close to Intels top chips.
Same as hyundai they would make a faster better car if they could but they can't, they don't have the money or knowledge(LOL comparing Hyundai to AMD) But its a stupid comparison because bugatti dident make that car to make money but too make the fastest car possible, and im pretty sure they lose money on them from what I have read.(Intel dont lose money on there chips) So I hope you can understand that AMD can't make a better chip then Intel, you explained it yourself.
I think Intel makes more money on the 980X and 970 then you think, there are alot of people with them out there, many buying more then one.
Thanks, Sir Overkill.
