AMD... I'm even thinking about putting this in my new budget pc build for my sister, but the thing if you don't need extremely high overclocks than wouldn't going AMD serve you on so any levels. Their new 6 core is 300 something incredible. It makes me wonder how much profit from each chip intel is making.
I would think Intel's profit would be at least 700 dollars per chip, seeing as AMD can sell there chip for 300. It may be slightly less or more, but I can definitely say there at least pulling 500 dollars out of it, probably more.
To Bad...Now thanks to AMD customer appreciation!
I'll be switching to Intel and Nvidia :(
At least when I asked to get bent over, I will already expect it!
Offering forward compatibility with Bulldozer is a pretty big deal, honestly. Keep in mind that six-core chips are still available and will drop into existing server implementations.
MrBrownSound: Intel's gross profit margin last quarter was around 62% and that's on all of their products. Server margins are higher than desktop margins--it wouldn't be unreasonable to think Intel's profit margin there is in the 70-80% range.
AMD is not that good. Intel still kicks ass!
