Yes interesting and nice to see some good words about AMD. I shouldn't be allowed to comment on AMD at all as I still hold my shares in that company, but one has to admit that it would be very bad for everyone to see them put out of the game. I see alot of hatred toward the Big Green these days- frustration arising from their desparate press blitzes and sketchy performance benchmarks, but the truth is that every company plays these games when they need to-- Companies that are ont top don't need to engage in these tactics and that's the only reason they don't.

Absolutely. Without Intel, the CPU market would be years behind, if not decades. Competition, brings out the best in many things, and that applies to video cards too!
