Intel will probably always dominate the processor market, but the fact remains that the CPU is just another part in a computer. Someday,
some other big companies like Digital will move to the processor market as other PC/PC part profit margins shrink. And unlike other companies like AMD and Cyrix who try to keep just one step behind or even in step with Intel, it is possible that they could be one step ahead of Intel, yet still have good prices. This will definitely hurt Intel's market.

Also, since software is not advancing half as fast as CPUs, chip sales will continue to slow their gain. My Pentium imitation 166Mhz cyrix MMX processor never has any lack of speed. I would have bought an AMD, but the place I buy from was all out. As much as I like Intel and their products, the competition offers better value in the low and medium end of the market and may soon be better values in the upper end.

After the competition started I sold Intel at $98, at least I would have except I couldn't because of problems due to relatives (don't ask).
