LegitReviews says that AMD plans to increase their CPU output a lot:

Quote:
With the help from new Fab36, which is ready in December, and Chartered Semiconductor, AMD has raised its production estimation on desktop CPU to 45.83 million in 2006, reaching the highest point in the history of AMD. AMD is on average producing 9.76 million desktop CPUs in each of the first 2 quarters in 2006. As AMD announced before, Chartered Semiconductor will give hand to the manufacturing in Q3, raising the productivity to 11.82 million. Together with the open of Fab 36 in December, AMD would be producing 14.5 million CPUs in Q4, 34.9% higher than the first 2 quarters.

Quote:
AMD's 2006 projected desktop CPU shipments, to be realized with rising demand for AM2-socket CPUs and a production ramp from its Singapore-based contract chipmaker Chartered Semiconductor, will account for 32% of the global desktop PC market of 141 million units as projected by market research firms, said the sources.

...AMD earlier projected it would ship 12 million notebook CPUs in 2006, accounting for 15% of the world's notebook CPU market, according to the sources.

Did you notice that they use the words "global desktop PC market", and on the same page (under Related Stories) they have:

AMD aims to ship over million Socket 754 Sempron CPUs in emerging markets in 3Q (Aug 2)



If that's where they're dumping their old tech as they tabulate it as a sale, then they will probably be buried if Intel does this with its Netburst surplus.

That's just the state of things though. Intel is sitting on a huge surplus of Netburst cpus, and AMD is forced to play their game. I personally think the the market would be better off if C2D was priced higher. They could have sold C2D at slightly lower price than X2's and made a killing. Price competition is good by undercutting prices hurts in the longrun...

Certainly not enthusiasts like you, who make up less than 1% of the global market
