AMD AMD recently said that they'd be starting onto the 32nm track, beginning production around the fourth quarter of 2010. Intel, on the other hand, has already demonstrated some of its prototypes and will be rolling these babies out to the public come the fourth quarter of-- ah-- this year. AMD isn't manufacturing these chips, however, and is instead laying the load on the newborn Foundry Company, which was created with the help of AMD out of ATI.

"Perhaps one day AMD will be able to come up with something new for a change?"

Intel just happens to have a lot more money ,manpower & marketshare .

Has Intel come up with any new great ideas ?

They seem to be following in a big part AMD's design lead & using their far greater rescources ,to be able to move to smaller manufacturing sizes and technologies earlier .

I don't know how old the idea of CPU-Graphics merging is ,but I heard it first from AMD ,although could be that Intel has the power to bring it to market first .

Comparing the PC space with embedded ,one could think that embedded are generally ahead ,in comparision to either of the two .
