If this is true, it would really suck, as I have always spec'd out and built my own PCs from the ground up.
If it does happen, and people decide they'll just buy AMD CPUs from that point forward, then how much market share would Intel lose? On another note - without researching it - wasn't there a blurb here about AMD potentially being up for sale? If Intel was to purchase AMD, then PC enthusiasts would be screwed for sure!
Hopefully Intel doesn’t make such a bonehead move!
