Except that it is in the desktop and enterprise environment. See, the biggest piece of the pie isn't in ULV procs. It's still in mainline procs.

Take, for example, Ford. Is Ford going to be buying more Dell/HP/Lenovo systems and servers or more iPads during their next upgrade cycle? Chances are, Ford isn't going to be spending a couple tens of millions worldwide on iPads.

That's where the anti-trust/monopoly suits come from. Not "Well, we have ARM and Snapdragon processors in mobile phones and tablets so it's totally cool for you to be the only producer of desktop and server processors."

It is in Intel's best interest to keep a competitor alive in every market segment. It's also cheaper than a lawsuit, too.

I'd expect a "loan" from Intel via some cross-license deal to keep them afloat. It's cheaper to do that than fight yet another anti-trust suit simply because you're the only large player left on the field.

Not unless not only is AMD dying, but so is Qualcomm, NVidia, Texas Instruments, Samsung, CSR plc, ST-Ericsson, etc... (makers of ARM chips found in many newest devices) are all going out of business with them. x86 chips aren't the only chips on the market anymore. And Windows is designed to run on them now, as is Linux, OSX has been showing signs of this, Android, iOS, Blackberry. So its not the same playing field it was 10 years ago

They're in their downward spiral. They can not make competitive chips where it counts and they don't have a broad enough portfolio to have money coming in while they try and work on their core business.
