AMD AMD chief executive Hector Ruiz said Wednesday that Apple will eventually use its microprocessors alongside those from Intel. Ruiz made the comments during a dinner speech at the Commonwealth Club in San Francisco, according to Bloomberg. "Everybody wants choice," he said, adding that rival Intel's practices have stifled the PC industry's growth. "Knowing Apple, why would they want to be held hostage like everyone else has been?"

Because nothing AMD has can take on Core 2 architecture?

If AMD comes out with something better, might be a different story. At the same time, Intel is the only company who already has ability to do 45nm and 32nm to follow. Soo... AMD got their work cut out for them.

Yet.

When Opterons and Amd64 came out it was Intel who was in this situation. I don't think Amd is doing worse (hell, check architecture, consumption, thermals, performance charts) now than Intel was back then, given the situation.

Time will tell.
