Analyzing AMDs "Scorched Earth" Strategy
“A cornered fox is more dangerous than a jackal!”
That legendary quote has never been more true in the case of the ongoing AMD vs Intel battle. I feel that AMD is using a "Scorched Earth" type of strategy during their battle with Intel at the moment. Throughout history AMD has had their ups and downs against Intel. Many years ago AMDs Athlons with much lower clocks were matching or outdoing highly clocked Pentiums. AMD Opteron was doing pretty well during those times as well. Long story short AMD was rising and Intel had to do something about that. Unfortunately, one path that Intel took consisted of “bribing” companies into not shipping units that contained AMD processors. Intel only wanted “Intel inside” literally because Intel figured that AMD can’t make money if there aren’t any AMD products on the shelves right?
