    Intel to delay launch of three 45nm quad-core CPUs on poor AMD performance

    Perhaps a better explanation might be that they need to improve yields or stability on the new parts to make decent money selling them instead of taking a cut for competitive reasons. That would actually be reasonable. The increase in activity of the long term Fudster population here suggested that there has been some problem.

    • This is why you continue to pump AMD and lose money. If you understood this business you'd understand why Intel would not be coming out with lower end quads. With no competition from AMD there is absolutely no reason for Intel to essential compete with itself by cannibalizing its higher margin skus. That's a brain-dead strategy that only you and Hector would endorse.

        I don't pump AMD and I don't lose money. I have no interest in Intel nor AMD stock.

        Fudsters have always claimed that the 45nm parts were cheaper to make as well as faster, etc. Evidently not. That's what you are saying. Marketing people could easily solve any problem such as you mention and make more money than otherwise if they were cheaper, etc. What do you think - Q2, Q3?
