Some might be shocked to see markups as high as 2000% and higher. I don't think this is unfair, though. The R&D for CPUs from any developer is going to be in the billions of dollars, the fastest processors always have low yield rates, and technology is only becoming more affordable for the single user. It is interesting to see the figures behind the companies, though. There aren't numbers for AMD, VIA, IBM or others, but I can imagine the difference would not be much.
