"It used to be that there was only one possible choice for a CPU in the world and that, of course, was Intel. Having no successful competitors until recent years, why would anyone make a decision to go with another company when they could just as easily buy from the people who started the entire speed revolution? There was Cyrix, who catered to the budget consumer that didn't care about performance, or if the machine could play Quake or not. Even IBM passed through the market at this level before moving on to the higher end business with its super-computing chips.
