There is no magic. Intel has some of the best (if not the best) CPU designers in the world, and the best Fabs in the world. There are also some problems that can't be solved no matter how much money you throw at them.

Also, always keep in mind: Current Market Valuation =! Money at hand.

Not that NVIDIA has any problem with any of that.
