Remember when WCOM longs back in early 2000's were lamenting that the share price was very cheap? They were pumping the stock based on past performance and that WCOM was the undisputed leader of an industry that in reality was very competitive. They hid a lot stuff from investors to keep the stock inflated until they could get their house in order. Well, when investors found out about their accounting Scams, they bailed out in droves. WCOM stock went to $20 to $1 in a period of a few months. Of course, I am not saying that this may happen to Intel. However, in time of troubles, Intel may not be very transparent with investors because of the inventory buildup and loss of market share to rival AMD. They do not want to see their stock price go down hoping the problem can be fixed! This is serious stuff folks because their problems may be compounding by the days and they may end up Warning of a considerable earnings shortfall. So in my opinion and analysis, I think investing in Intel right now is very risky. Like I said in my previous post, I used to be an Intel investor, but I opted out a few months ago because I foresaw these problems. The choice now is yours! Sell, move on and never look back or suffer in pain and not sleep at night until you see your hard earned money and wealth wiped out!
Apple has thousands of engineers testing
products from IBM, Motorola, Intel and
What makes you think it's the marketing
that made them switch?
Look at Apple's website, Core Duo is 2X-3X
as fasr as a G5(desktop Cpu).
For sure Intel's marketing is better. But there is a problem with that if a company gets carried away by marketing:
The focus in doing good products is lost, to favor products that only look good. That happened to Intel when it lost the gigahertz race. It came out with the pentium4 which has stunk all the way from 2000 until today, and brought the company to this horrible crisis.
As an aside note, Itanium!! so much has been lost in this futility!
one company chose Intel, who still has 75% of the market, so what??
Does that mean that Corpse Duo is interesting?
Is it a 64 bit capable, or a siamese eunuch?
I bought a Turion64 recently. It's the best compy I have bought ever. And my next desktop only is awaiting some money gains from Dell puts to be ordered: http://www.sun.com/desktop/workstation/ultra20/index.jsp
That's the brute force approach.
Be worried: AMD has APM to do 65nm with very high yields, HT/DCA to do *today* single die quad cores, in 4 way systems... and now it has z-ram technology to do 1-transistor p bit caches thanks to a property of SOI... compared to the 6 transistors a flip-flop requires...
I say that the 65nm is mere marketing advantage:
You do realize amd's 90nm stomps a mudhole in intel's best 65nm....what will happen when amd brings its 65nm to market in a very short few months...
