Did Intel shoot itself in the foot?

Posted on Monday, March 13 2006 @ 10:16:22 CET by

The Inq reports that by showing off and benchmarking the impressive upcoming Conroe processor, Intel may have shot itself in the foot.
In the old days, AMD would introduce chips at Computex to tickle the fancy of hacks and to test the resolve of its major competitor. This year looks like it will be a re-run of the old days and the world+dog will never forget that August is the busiest month of the year for PC manufacturers and the channel - so June and July are prime presentation and selling seasons.

Which is why it all gets curiouser and curiouser. The curious thing being that by pre-announcing benchmarks and plans for Conroe, Merom and Woodcrest at a March IDF, Intel now has to persuade the world+dog to buy the chips it already has available. Would a corporation, knowing now what it knows, plump to buy gazillions of desktops and notebooks when there is so much more coming later?
