"they're trying to stay at a price point to not compete with themselves" ... I see what you're saying, I guess my confusion stems from the fact that people who've decided to spend that much are still going to buy Intel, regardless of the specific chip/model. And enough people will buy Intel's more expensive offerings that I'm still not sure I see what the negative impact on Intel could be, as they'll be moving about as much stock at each price point (right?). Is the market really that cut-throat that Intel would feel a squeeze from this move?

Not meaning to be ignorant here, but what performance price-point do they occupy? It's my understanding that AMD offers better bang-for-buck at the budget end of the scale, and Intel trumps their mid-to-high range offerings. So how would this affect customers who've chosen to buy Intel, since they're already committing themselves to the mid-range or higher?

Can I have my millions now for "the expensive software needed to handle classified and declassified data simultaneously"?

It's hard to think of you as the end result of millions of years of evolution.
