  Intel has much deeper pockets than AMD

As the more established company, Intel has much deeper pockets than AMD and can afford to spend significantly greater amounts on both research and development and marketing. It is not clear that AMD will be able to keep pace in either area, leaving it a disadvantage.

Price wars with Intel will be more detrimental to AMD than to Intel, due to AMD's smaller scale. Intel can afford to cut costs more steeply while still maintaining a profit.
