Intel buy AMD... thats crazy talk !!
It'd more likely be a mega-conglomerate interested in entering the CPU market, like sony for example. Theyve always said theyre going to do it, Im not sure what they are currently up to....
I cant see it happening anytime soon though. Even if phenom doesnt take off for the desktop/gaming crowd, the server market, ATI products and project fusion will keep them around for a whiles yet.... For the same reasons as negsun, I'd never purchase an intel product again..... pull them out of pcs in the dumpster, yes
(like the dual core pentium d powering my media center pc)
