End to an End
The thing investors don't see is that AMD, in one swoop, has created a system across the board that is more about systems then the underlying technology. As they tighten up BIOS and drivers, they are making end-to-end processing as complete and optimized as possible. A rising tide lifts all boats? More like making a new ocean.
If investors leave in their money, the shear breadth of the ecosystem could overcome any early announcements Intel might imply is "coming soon". Intel is already tripping over itself. If AMD has the cash, they will keep focus and widen the edge to chasm.
