I just hope the "extreme" is actually extreme this time around. Not to mention at a decent price.

"Intel's microprocessors are used in more than 80% of personal computers, but the company has been losing market share to AMD and has seen shrinking profitability for several quarters in a row."

i think the new proccesors will put amd out of business

^^ Yep, that Extreme Edition insignia looks teh pwnz0r.

As for AMD, meh, who knows. They're kept up for a long time and this is the only time in recent history that Intel has taken a major performance lead over AMD. I doubt AMD will go out of business, too big. And then there's K8L in one and a half years, so AMD isn't exactly sticking with their current A64s forever.
