    I bet those stats are deliberately inflated by them.

    They aren't, hence as ive said the figures are inflated for "good report".

    In actuality, at least 50% of those profits goes out as bribes (IF not more lol!).

    Monopoly is bad, ok?

    In the short term? Yes.

    On the long run? Who knows?

    Personally I will avoid buying Intel unless they have the best price/performance at my budget level, witch I doubt.

    Intel's glorious years have passed, future lies with AMD / Nvidia / ARM.

    Intel should be forced to give an year ´s profit to AMD to even out things...

    It´s ridiculous the amount of money some companies make every year...

    They've been doing it for 20 years, through multiple lawsuits - I think it's pretty good in the long run too.

    Interesting, AMD and Intel both doing well. Something tells me both can't do well for to long, one will have to loose market share and profits that go with it.

    Why would they bribe anyone if there is no competition anyway?
    Also, lying on official earning calls is a felony.

    They make the majority of their money from professional sales, ie. datacenter and the like, where there hasn't been any competition for years and years. If that changes in the future we'll see, but earnings are for the past, not the future. :p

    That's not how it works and I hope you're not serious.

    Ya, why Intel would pay to MS and Nvidia for work better with their cpu (if detect intel cpu it runs optimized code, if not then run completly unoptimized - in os, directx api, drivers, games (because of ms visual c++ etc)...) or pay to distributors to sell only their products... It make no sense, what would they gain?... except profit...

    btw https://youtu.be/osSMJRyxG0k

    PS. AMD should start support alternative systems (like ReactOS) because MS only rub Intel back.. Why ReactOS? Because it is natively most compatible os with windows and it can be alternative os for pc game industry in future, and it can be well optimized for amd if they want.

    Clearly you aren't familiar with what Intel has been doing for past 40 years.

    The amount of bribes they make yearly just to sit on top as monopolist. The amount of cases that are open against Intel's anti consumer, anti technology, anti free market practices is staggering. 1.4 Billion EU commission lawsuit alone is a nice example. :infinity:

    Start your research with this great video - https://youtu.be/osSMJRyxG0k as an example.


    P.S.
    haha reps to chronek, posted exactly the same video. :)

    I was under the impression that Intel only did this in the Athlon era because the Athlon destroyed Pentium back in the day and later they´re found out and stopped it. Correct me if i´m wrong, please.
    Because like nevcairiel said there´s no point in bribing people when there´s no competition...

    People have been saying this for years, but it hasn't happened.

    Now I will say ARM is starting to come up in the commercial space, you see tablets made with credit card machines and drawer systems that run on ARM. That makes sense.

    Office machines, Intel has these on lock down. Makes sense too, they've been in office machines for years. Newer machines have iGPUs, the big companies that provide IT solutions through Dell, HP....Uhhh I think those are the only 2 left in the office space actually...Even then Dell is bigger than HP in that aspect and their machines mostly comprise of Intel machines.

    Watch the video I linked above, and you will see why.

    Intel bribes them.

    Also ( website is down, cached version works ) - This article demonstrates why Intel will die out soon, Unless they change their approach overall.

    This we know sadly...Intel has been doing this for years.

    But even still, AMD has nothing to offer at a price point that Intel doesn't already. The big thing that people like about Intel in the commercial scene is you have your CPU, and an igpu that can do multiple monitors. If it's too old to do so, then it's cheap enough to add a card that will do this. If AMD were to shake this up, they would have to offer something drematically different from what Intel is offering.
