I hope this isn't a repost. It's very concerning and thought provoking:

How AMD's Failures Are Triggering An Intel Monopoly



Many of us that are being labeled as "Intel Fanboys" and "AMD Bashers" actually don't give a care what company has the better products. We flock to whatever makes sense. But unfortunately AMD was in a hole after Core 2 came out and has only made it deeper since then. Bankruptcy looks like a real possibility if Barcelona flops.

Do you think that if Intel monopolizes the market they will have to be split up like AT&T once was?

After seeing this 80 core project and Intel rubbing out AMD not to mention ATI suffering as well I begin to wonder if AMD will have a future.

80 cores will be nothing but for specialized applications and not for consumer or even pro-sumer desktops. At least in the near to medium range future.
