As for straight cpus, AMD cpus easily (FX 6xxx and 8xxx, specifically) keep up with with i3's and i5's--no problem, and often out-perform them, while costing about the same, if not less. So, is it your contention that Intel sells no i3's and i5's and that there is no market there? (I doubt you've even thought about the subject that deeply.)

I don't know about that, most of the benches I've looked at show the FX series behind the i3 and i5s at their respective price points, not to mention consuming more power. The FPS deltas seem to show up even in lower end framerate range too. There might be an argument to be made about good enough if AMD were significantly cheaper but they often aren't. I love their APU stuff though.
