Intel is so far ahead of the competition it's not funny. From a business point of view it makes perfect sense to clear as much current stock as possible.

I don't know... I will grant you the bulldozer series from AMD was a complete flop though. What good is 8 cores when they can't out benchmark a good dual core from intel.

I wonder what the WEI graphics score will be with finalized drivers. I know WEI is somewhat arbritary, but I'd love a base score above 7
