WIll there be any AMD CPUs in the future? I find they offer the best performance/price ratio.

but they are behind in terms of top performance(although they still win in terms of bus speed intrestingly). AMD isn't going bust yet, but who knows what the future will hold.

Possibly.

We've sold them before, but I'm not aware of any that will be available in the short-term.

Here is an ongoing conversation you may wish to join.

wasnt AMD behind Intel when pentium 4 came out and then claimed the lead before core 2 came out?

Yeah.
It was the 'Athlon 64' series that came out and stomped the P4 CPU, both in price, performance, and cooling.

Now the Core 2 Duos are currently better in price/performance than the current AMD X2 cpus...
