Do you realize that's about the only time AMD was more expensive than Intel?
And you do realize that you work for Intel, right?
I do? Whoa, cool!
(Btw, what's your point?)
My point about the $1300 price tag is that the prices of the cpu's are more dependant on the market than competition. Don't misinterpret what I am saying... Competition is certainly a factor. However, competition was never more stiff than during the race to 1ghz, and prices were still over $1000. The reason that you can buy a 2.53ghz P4 for $230 is more because of the crappy market, than AMD.

Because the market sucks and not enough people are buying new PC's. The stock price (on both sides) has practically nothing to do with AMD vs Intel.
