[QUOTE=getit29;2575266]I don’t expect $1 billion in costs will bankrupt or cause Intel to go into the red
as I would imagine they have pretty deep pockets to start with.
Now if it were AMD then I might be worried as $1 billion in losses due to a recall
for them would be a big hit to their pockets.
With all the money Intel has a price tag of $1 billion for the recall is more than
likely just a drop in the bucket.
I’m not a big fan of anything Intel but they have earned my respect for stepping
up and accepting responsibility for their screw up and not trying to cover it up or
acting like it is someone else’s fault. [/QUOTE]
What other choice would they have? It’s not like nobody would notice they’re producing crap. I stopped buying Intel a long time ago. I have built computers for friends who wanted Intel based systems. The people with the AMD systems just seem to get more bang for the buck, and they seem to last longer. Just a personal observation only backed by personal experience.
