CONTRIBUTION: Overview of the CPU market with its main competitors of Intel and AMD. Research on outlook, product pipelines of both companies and as well as sustainability of market conditions.

OF INTEREST: For the first time in ages, Intel had a competitor. Unfortunately, after gaining a considerable share of the market, AMD suddenly couldn't hold on any longer. Two years after, AMD has its Opteron out to re-challenge the big daddy. Can they yield their powers successfully?
