Intel will take two years to catch up to AMD

AMD told South African hacks that it still has a lead over Intel of two years, writes Mark Davison. Henri Richard, AMD's chief sales and marketing officer, said: ""We can maintain our technology leadership until 2007/08. "It's difficult to predict what'll happen after that, but we'll work hard to keep our customer-centric leadership intact."

Richard admitted that AMD has a window of opportunity. But, he said: "Being realistic, there are going to be times when we're a little ahead and there are going to be times when we're a little behind but, technologically, we'll not rest on our laurels and allow them to catch up. I don't see us shrinking and, as anyone that was at IDF can testify, they [Intel] have nothing that can hurt us. "I don't want to sound cocky," he said. "We're very focused on staying close to reality, but it seems we do have a very good lead and we can maintain it."
