AMD "Advanced Micro Devices has hired JPMorgan Chase & Co to explore options, which could include a potential sale, as the chipmaker struggles to find a role in an industry increasingly focused on mobile and away from traditional PCs, according to three sources familiar with the situation." Woah. Bad news for competition in the x86 space.

Yes, people do not realize this. I can easily collect a PC (especially now, considering black Friday is near) using AMD components for less than $200 (including case, PSU, motherboard, CPU, RAM, GPU, excluding HDD and monitor). But the cheapest Intel option would be almost twice that.

If you want the absolute top performance, Core i7 has no competition, but if you want to most bang for your buck AMD is the best choice.
