AMD If Grand Funk Railroad is on your shopping list, Advanced Micro Devices has the computer for you. The processor maker will unveil its 'Live' brand at the Consumer Electronics Show, which takes place this week in Las Vegas. The brand - whose logo will be printed on a sticker on the chassis of a desktop or notebook - will indicate that the computer in question is tuned for home entertainment. Live PCs will come with 7.1 surround sound capabilities, for instance, said Hal Speed, a marketing architect for AMD.

They approach seems to be quite a bit more industry friendly than Intel's. The big unknown but critical thing not mentioned in the article is DRM and all that "Protected Path" stuff.

Cool name but it sounds a lot like what they did with "XP"

AMD64 is cooler.
