Monopoly issues aside, Intel must still be making a profit despite "throwing money away" for these bribes or price dumps or whatever they're accused of - otherwise they wouldn't be doing it. That means the are indeed able to compete on price, which suggests their products aren't so out-of-whack with the market as you seem to imply.

You seem to be contradicting yourself with this paragraph. The whole point is that they're not competing on price. It's not hard to outsell your competition if you pay off the market so they don't use your competitor's parts, or delay them so that they miss the early (and highly profitable) part of the market window.
