Intel Crushes AMD Groove
Always spunky AMD put a hurt on Intel with faster chips for game PCs, cheaper
prices, a killer 64-bit strategy and by leading the dual-/multi-core charge.
You had to know Intel wasn't going to take this guff forever, and you were
right. The chip giant took the gloves off and whacked AMD soundly with even
lower prices, an aggressive dual-core plan and by leveraging its many OEM relationships.
All that helped drive
AMD results down faster then a 2001 Enron share price, as AMD lost over
$600 million in its latest quarter.
Here's hoping the company gets back on its feet. Intel fights way harder when
it has a little competition.
