    You mean that 1.5 billion dollars make them regret that they kept making many billions of dollars while they where selling Crapium 4? They regretted it so much, that they where paying everyone + the dog a few years latter when they where trying to push in the smartphone/tablet market with that contra revenue program. They found more "legal" ways to bride, they didn't change attitude.

    OEMs don't expect a product to save them, so their priorities are to keep good business connections with the biggest companies, in this case Intel and Nvidia, mostly intel, because no one likes doing business with Nvidia anyway. Even if AMD creates the perfect CPU, OEMs will keep selling more Intel systems for a while at least. If AMD can convince them that they can keep making better processors and TSMC can start making enough CPUs to cover the global demand, then things can start changing. Until then, it is an uphill battle for AMD.

    For now AMD needs to offer two things with Zen 2. Better IPC, to convince gamers to change side, and much much better efficiency in laptops, to push OEMs to create more AMD based models.

    P.S. In case people think that I am an Intel fan, my last Intel processor was a Celeron 333A. After that everything was AMD. I do have a couple of Intel systems, but I payed nothing for those. They where gifts.
