but that won't last through 2008 as Intel moves to a serialized bus architecture and an on-die memory controller.

AMD already has on-die memory controller(s) now (2007) -one for each core - and it will be included also on quad core AMD processors.

They also already have the serialized bus architecture - that was his point, that Intel is removing the advantages in technology that AMD currently has over them.

You are right. I had understood the other way. Thanks.
