I think you probably mean D1X...
I've never studied economics. From what I understand games company's are able to their console at a loss since they will get the money back from game sales.
Since Intel do not sell accessories for their products and do not get a cut from games sold it would seem the long term investment of running at a loss would be no money.
I don't think Intel is going after AMD's market share with this one. It makes much more sense for them to keep prices as they are and reduce overheads to increase profit.
Also, I thought AMD was making a profit on each CPU they sell now? I was under the impression they've only been operating at a loss recently because they've dumped a load of cash into R&D.
I doubt we will see prices drop on a consumer side remember they care about their wallets and bonuses more then they care about how much we want to save.
Not likely, as there's no volume production of 450mm wafers yet, nor are there production machines for the entire process.
It is good news though, because when Intel leaps the gate, the other manufacturers will follow, and 450mm technology becomes established.
Separate names with a comma.
