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.

What you are saying is just wrong. AMD has *led* Intel several times "in recent years". When did intel integrate a memory controller??? Oh was it last month? I believe AMD had this and many other innovations years ago. AMD follows on process and it isn't for lack of vision, it is for lack of money. For IDMs moving forward to new processes is insanely expensive and only a few companies can stay at the cutting edge, Intel being of of them. Another one is TSMC who only stays there by dealing in huge volumes. AMD just doesn't have the market share to produce the money to produce the new fabs.
