Weaving Wonderful Worlds

Processor Battle Heats Up

AMD is getting serious about losing the performance crown to Intel’s Core processor. They are making sweeping cuts to streamline their channels but are apparently not in the best of strategic positions to do so at the moment. The move by Intel appears to have caught AMD off gaurd, a tactic AMD initially used in tandem with an aggressive pricing strategy to garner its market share with their first socket-based Athlon line. This round of the fight is the first in which Intel has brought a true competitor since AMD’s rise from the ashes…. are both companies agile enough to survive a few more punches?

AMD will be able to buy some time for their newer AM2 configs if they hurry their quad-core to market. If you can’t beat them with one core… why not add a few more?! Well, power consumption might play a tiny role ;).
