    Re: Good point made by the Inquirer...

    Personally, I think the 'of necessity' BTX form factor is maybe the single best thing Intel's ever done for AMD. Never hear anyone begging for the pins to be on the mobo instead of the cpu, do we?

    The whole BTX thing sounds like a bad idea as far as Intel is concerned

    Heh... had practically forgotten about BTX... it just dissapeared like a fart in the wind

    I think Intel may be hoping that everyone will forget their worthless new form factor too.

    Is BTX going to become big or does no one care?

    Hey there,

    I think AMD going head to head with INTEL is a very UNWISE decision. Granted by the nature
    of making a CPU you kinda are in a head to head battle anyway. You have to be strategic
    in your battles. Let's look at the US military, do they have the most people? No, they have
    to pick where and when they want to hit and make it count. Can anyone tell me how
    much market share AMD has?
    In the 2nd Qtr of 2004 Intel 82.7% leaving AMD with just about the rest.
    Anybody play RISK? I know when my buddy had a mjority of the board
    (which was rare with me ) I had to be careful. Besides I am perfectly happy with what AMD
    is producing thus far. I agree that AMD is getting too much away from the BANG FOR BUCK
    advantage. My $0.02.

    Take time to do the important things
    today since you may not get a
    tomorrow.

    Anytime you give your $0.02 you better have a qtr
    to back it up.
