AMD AMD says its badly needed quad-core desktop processors are on the way, and they'll arrive bearing a new name. Two quad-core chips will be available in the second half of the year, the Phenom FX and the Phenom X4, and a dual-core chip based on a similar design called the Phenom X2 will also appear by the end of the year.

I agree. I did not mean a follower in the technological sense but in the business sense. Intel can outspend them anytime.

I agree, Intel can outspend them anytime they want, but that is mostly because of thier huge size, and diversified product portfolio. AMD has taken steps to remedy that by buying ATI, which gives them roughly the same capabilities as Intel, so hopefully they can compete on more equal footing.
