  • Top 10 Reasons
    Intel did not Participate in the Dual-Core Duel
    10. Tried to follow their own roadmap to get to the duel
    9. Decided to take the "front-side bus" to the duel; got stuck in a
    bottleneck
    8. The "Intel Inside" stickers they used to package the cores
    together keep melting
    7. Too busy rearranging the deck chairs on the Itanic
    6. "Hey, we don't expect anyone to actually buy these things!“
    5. Didn't want to compete when they realized that the duel would
    involve actual "rules" of fair competition
    4. They couldn't get a permit from the fire department to emit that
    much heat
    3. No systems available yet -- protective clothing used by
    manufacturers only safe for up to 149 watts
    2. Dell told them they weren't allowed to participate
    And the number one reason Intel didn’t accept the dual-core duel:
    1. Moore's Law has been replaced by "Paul's Paradox": the number
    of canceled products per year at Intel will double every year
    after the introduction of the AMD Opteron™ processor.
