Less competition = slower progress. Great.

Yet people are excited about the possibility of AMD going out of business. Most ignorant thing I have ever heard.

Excited? Where do you read this? We all want the competition as its healthier for us all in the long term. Its just AMD themselves can't compete with Intel's mainstream performance processors so they are their own worse enemies if they can't keep up.

You got this all wrong friend.
We are not excited at all for the lack of competition. But the issue here is that there is no point to support a company who is not willing to compete but instead it just wants to remain there. I personally don't want this kind of situation with AMD to keep going on. If they cant compete its better if they just vanish and let someone else to step up the game.

Tell me Avon. Who can step up to compete with a behemoth like Intel on a equal capitalisation basis? Maybe Samsung, but they'll never get an x86 license from Intel, of course. Intel has been dominate for so long and has been protected from competition by the FTC that no one can bring them down. AMD can only make competitive products that prick the beast but they will never be able to put an arrow through its heart. This is bad for consumers, Avon. Blame the government agencies for letting this terrible situation blossom.

PS: Avon, you have no friends here except you banned troll friend 1234.

The only real competition Intel has is from ARM. But unfortunately that gives me all the stuff I don't want. I hate integrated graphics and I certainly don't want integrated voltage modules and I want to be able to move my FSB higher to overclock.

AMD: you started with a cpu that had the same speed with lower clocks but you abandoned that and went for higher clocks anyway. Intel learned from you and now has a vastly better IPC and that is at least a big part of the reason they defeat you now. Go back to the old AMD way. Please I beg you.

Not quite. Less competition = focus on quality.

That is why I just bought an AMD Sleekbook over Intel Ultrabook, to support AMD to help bring down Intel the Goliath. Not just because it is supporting my old chum AMD, but because it is much better from a price performance aspect. I am still your fan AMD (despite buying Intel desktops for the past few times). I will never forget my first Athlon and what it did for Quake 2. Ahhh the good old days. GO AMD GO! Even when AMD was whooping Intel a decade or so ago, they were still considered small fry's. The FTC will block small companies and industries like IDT and PLX merger (PCI Express who compete with Intel), but they let Intel whoop the crap out of every other hardware company and swoop up and tie up any software company, AMD is just the tip of the iceberg.

Boy I hate Intel, so happy I went with my AMD Sleekbook now.

Oh and I forgot to mention, actions by Intel caused my last two hardware companies to go out of business. Greedy pigs.

5TB sounds sufficient for all of my data needs in the next decade. just hope it survive that long.
