This is was my theory about AMD's growth in effect, they built up a reputation for being the gamers processor, and Intel hasnt killed that reputation; at least yet. In any case gamers who dont know alot or about the Core 2 will still go with AMD because of that reputation.

At some point its going to become a GFX card bottleneck, so you might not see much difference. Processing power would see leaps and bounds in gains. A true "gamer" or pc "enthusiast" would do a little research on whats the best out there before throwing his/her money at any one company, IMHO.

I wonder why... The turion was never any good compared to the intel mobiles and everyone knows it.

Correction: every enthusiast knows it. The mainstream consumer doesn't even know the difference between processors - a dell and an hp with identical hardware are about as different as two computers can be in most consumers' eyes. The things that go on on these forums are completely removed from sales and earnings - we aren't even in the same market as the mainstream - which is what matters. C2D will have an impact on the market - in a year or so

</div>Simple. Price/Cost. <br />
<br />
They for sure are not as good but HP, Dell, Gateway are to get the lowest priced CPU to make the quickest buck, just like Intel used to do back in the days.......except now with the demand, it's the cost that it's most important to such companies. Sales are up, cost is down! <br />
<br />
But we all know that if anyone here were to buy a Turion or a Core CPU based laptop, we'll get the Core in a heart-beat.

</div>Look at me theory, i think that pretty accurately explains it. Of course it may not pertain to all situations, some alot of the people I know that are "kinda" computer saavy all think AMD is still better for gaming. Of course I correct them, the point is if I didnt they would still be thinking that and buy an AMD platform.
