Intel pwns AMD

Jennifer LeClaire of writes, "Move over AMD. Sony and Toshiba have bumped you off the top-10 list -- and Intel remains king of the chipmakers.

Intel's chip revenue is expected to rise 7.7 percent in 2007 to reach $33.97 billion, up from $31.5 billion in 2006."

"Intel exceeded the overall semiconductor industry growth rate of 4.1 percent in 2007 and massively outperformed its PC microprocessor rival AMD, whose sales are expected to decline by 22.7 percent for the year."

Unfortunate for AMD, considering they just merged with ATI to try and form some huge semiconductor conglomerate.

Too bad it's failing pretty badly in comparison with Intel.

I wonder if one day, to squish out AMD / ATI, Intel possibly might buy nVidia?

I think that would be the dagger to the heart of AMD /ATI.

According to the rumors and hints it looks like Intel might try to buy NVIDIA next year some people even speculate a forced takeover if NVIDIA wont accept >.>
