AMD a mainstream processor firm, for the time being

FUD Zilla claims AMD has altered its business model and is trying to send out a message that it is now a mainstream processor maker, at least for the time being. New high-end parts may follow by the end of this year or in 2009 but currently the firm is in no shape to compete against Intel's top-of-the-line processors.
Everyone knows that both Intel and AMD are selling majority of its CPUs in sub $ / €250 market and this is actually the sweet spot for these companies. There is no doubt that both Intel and AMD like to sell $1000 CPUs, but currently AMD doesn’t have anything for that market and it simply ducks its head down until it fixes its position.
