Intel will be around for a long, long time but they continue to loose market share to all of their competitors. In addition the billions in financial incentives along with their 600 Million IRS bill x 2, lower ASPs, obsolete product, rush to market EE, year delayed Prescott, etc. take their toll on the bottom line and industry image. AMD has signed on a lot of key PC industry players with the Opteron/A64 launch. The next two years should make those once deep pockets at Intel a whole lot lighter... but hey, that will lower Intel's tax bill.
