      Which in turn was a technical decision.

      Anyway, I was thinking of going with AMD's Bulldozer next time I ugrade but given what I've seen sofar it's been quite underwhelming. Still, I reckon I have atleast 1-2 years before I feel I've outgrown my core i7 and i5 and it will be interesting to see what the Bulldozer architecture offers at that time compared to Intel.

        Let's hope AMD is still around by then, they bet pretty heavy on BD and with their recent stock slide I can't see the release of BD doing much for their next few quarterly reports.

              No I am not dreaming Kano. XBoX 1 was originally supposed to have an AMD cpu (and early prototypes did) and what later became the nForce chipset. However intel came along and did their classic FUD campain at the time and convinced MS that the AMD cpu wouldn't be up to the task (thermal wise).

                  It was in a book that I read quite a few years ago that documented the development and marketing of the original XBoX.
