Oh of course they could have,they could have released a full broadwell lineup with 6 cores while AMD was stuck on faildozer and not doing anything and a refresh with 6c/12t while AMD was stuck on faildozer and not doing anything,and then a skylake with 8 and it's refresh with 8c/16t while AMD was stuck on faildozer and not doing anythingThe real problem, though, is the consumer has his/her own memory and for the most part isn't stupid. They know Intel could have offered something like that for the prior 10 years of dominance. They also know the only reason "Intel gave a decent answer" is because they were forced to.
and AMD would have packed their bags and left the business before even the broadwell refresh.
/sWhen, or if, AMD starts trying to gouge the consumer - which is typically inevitable because of the bean counters and shareholders - then consumers here will be a little more even handed with Intel.
oh oh oh let me let me,AMD dropping their price of the 3900x to 410 shows that they could have offered that chip at that price from the beginning...Devils!!666!Burn them.
