AMD takes the money they would have spent on all that fancy advertising and passes it on to the consumer.
Oh yeah and you cant leave out IBM they have made some good, but non mainstream processors lately. They finally won over Apples affection.
Yeah - they're making the XBox Processors now!
Intel don't pay for Advertising anymore: they use their Bum, Dum dum dum dum, Bum logo thing when they are selling computers.
But Intel is more powerful still - especially with the Hyper-Threading and Huge Cache of the Extreme Edition. Its just in Games which Intel is equalled by AMD; and very rarely but sometimes beaten by AMD - and that seems to be a big market recently.
