Sweey, do you reckon their lack of money being the main reason Intel surpassed them? O_o
Not at all.

When AMD had the lead with their Athlon series, it was clearly noted by all that Intel had two R&D teams and AMD only one. While one Intel R&D team looked into an Athlon competitor, the other one skipped ahead two steps and went for something way into the future. That's where they surpassed AMD whose one R&D team were stuck on Athlon and its immediate successor. AMD have never fully recovered from that which has led to their current position.

My current system is my first Intel one ever. There isn't much difference between stock systems but Intel's CPUs overclock far better than the AMD CPUs.
