Intel missed its own guidiance
The rule has changed. AMD is taking market share across the board. Those $99 2.6GHZ AMD64 X2 CPUs are impossible to resist. Why getting a copycat Core 2 Duo when you can buy the real thing? If you examine the market share of AMD in developed countries such as U.S., you see it takes about 50% of the pie. The inescapable conclusion is that Intel only dominates in 3rd world where bribery and kick-backs work.
