It's an interesting theory, but just because Intel is off-schedule.. why
would you think AMD is positioned to capitalize?
1) Do they have the mindshare?
2) Do they have the software to back up nice hardware?
3) Big machines are contractually locked down years in advance
That leaves small and mid market opportunities... Where can they make a
move in time and how? (Don't get me wrong.. I'm a big fan of AMD and wish
them all the best luck)
