AMD Revenue Is Increasing But Still 22 Percent Less Than Last Ye

reign once again? they never "reigned" in the first place, they made 1 series of cpus (athlon) that had a chance to c0mpete against intel and tried to push it as far as possible, while this was happening intel were making a c0mpletely new chip (core 2) that would destroy their own P4 and amds athlon, and look where we are now, amd hasnt made a decent cpu for years, no wonder they're 22% down.I mean AMD and P4 were pretty much equal performance wise, both had there ups and downs but c0mpare that to the difference between i7 and phenom (and probably athlon II).until amd make a chip thats better than the i7 as much as the i7 is better than the phenom, intel will always be ahead

But Nowhere Man, have you forgotten? an Athlon running at 2.6ghz would be more powerful then a P4 running at 3.2ghz. People would overclock the Athlons and get 200mhz more outta them thus getting a lot more bang for their buck. They were not equal, Amd was slightly faster, but yeah i agree, wtf was Amd doing all this time, they should've been working on a much more powerful processor. The gap in performance we see with I7 vs Phenom 2 is alot bigger then what we saw with Athlon vs Pentium but Amd is a generation behind.
