The CPU market is evolving more than ever. The days when desktop processors and Intel ruled the world are slowly taking a different course. To begin with, we are now seeing a much greater volume in mobile requirements and orders than ever before. Even though there are fewer notebook manufacturers than desktop the demand is to the point that AMD has invaded the space Intel once solely owned. AMD mobile requirements and orders have been showering in from both production builds and the service/repair end. That being said, Intel is feeling AMD’s market presence and they too are no longer holding true to their published direct price drops. This is a play right out of AMD’s playbook. More now than ever we are seeing Intel offering new pricing weeks before the official Intel price drop. Many now are getting the June 22nd prices this week, giving Intel an edge over AMD and their customers the best deal for their dollar.
