TG Daily talks about how AMD hopes to reclaim the CPU crown in 2007 with its quad-core processors by mid-2007, at least until Intel rolls out its 45nm processors:
A simplified look at the CPU industry over the past three, four years could suggest that the impact of competition wasn't taken as seriously as it should have been. AMD seemingly was able to surprise Intel and attack the blue team in various market segments ranging down from the server to the notebook. Intel, seemingly ignoring performance and power consumption trends was hit hard especially in the server segment and still struggles today in the 4P space. On the other hand, AMD at least publicly ignore the potential strength of the Core microarchitecture that basically wiped out AMD's technology lead in the desktop, workstation and volume server space..
