as someone mentioned earlier, intel cheats! thats when amd sued them. intel would threaten dell and other companies that if they start carrying AMD chips, then they'll jack up their prices. i never knew what happened with that law suit, but someone said amd won
as for advertising..
amd spent $816 million (or w/e the number was.. i'm quoting from memory what someone said earlier) on research and development.. can't they take like $2 million of that and put it towards a good super bowl commercial?! $2million will buy you a 30 second commercial in the super bowl. they'll have a huge audeince, and i'm sure in those 30 seconds, they could educate the ppl that clock speed is not the most important.. and they could give and example like 1.8ghz = 3.0ghz or something like that. and say amd is great for gaming! (lotta males watching.. gotta hit that cord)
on a side-note.. one of my favourite superbowl commericals was the e-trade one.
they had this monkey dancing around wearing an e-trade t-shirt. for the whole commerical this monkey did nothing but jump up and down. that was the whole commercial. and at the very end, they had a screen that said "we just wasted $2 million dollars. what are you doing with your money?" lol.. amd needs to come up with something clever!!!
