There is no wonder where the money is coming from with intel posting record profits last quater. If the investment was made in 2007 though, doesn't that pre-date the economic crisis?
AMD are gonna find it harder and harder to compete in the future.
how can those intel workers eat their Pho with their full suit on?
Sucks to be AMD right now...
AMD will have to pull a rabbit out of the Hat or they will be done...its a bill gates microsoft all over again with intel...they will be the only supplier of decent CPUs shortly.
And the consumer, if Intel is in a one horse race, they can do whatever they want with the prices
In otherwords SCREW US OUT OF OUR MONIES
Let's be brutally honest here, they've had no competition for quite a few years now. So why haven't they started over charging already?
hehe yeah really
too bad they couldn't build the plants here.. oh yeah I forgot
imo, they have been for a while...
Â£75 for the i3 - 540, Â£135 for i5 - 760 and Â£215 for i7 - 950.
The equivilant AMD is similarly priced but in direct comparison under performing. I take it you want your CPU's for free?
People, we're missing the real question here...
Why are they testing these things on the Vietnamese?!
They're the only ones born with the right socket to test em on...
Despite the humorous intent, it's a good question.
So far China has been the high-tech center and Vietnam and Malaysia have been the cheap places to manufacture, but were not thought of as being capable of this quality of work. Intel's trying to see if they can develop the technical capability so that in the future they can move more of their production to Vietnam to take advantage of the cheaper labor costs.
