AMD AMD had a bit of a setback with their Barcelona server processor, the company seems to have moved on. During a conference call today, the company laid out its plans for the server space for the coming years, putting 6 and 12 core processors on the horizon.

AMD Roadmap

Nothing big & exciting - but considering they are trying to survive (also mentioned in the AMD v Intel court cases on ars technica) it will hopefully be enough to gather strength i.e. money again .

I must say I haven't read of any really new things technologically from Intel or AMD .

AMD's Fusion should be cool ,but now quite a few years still away it seems .

Intel with all the money isn't bringing out anything drastically new in the next years either .

All really exciting things from either two are still a few years away .

How come everybody else in the chip industry is bringing out cool new things ,but AMD & Intel aren't ?

Is there no incentive to do new things for Intel in normal x86 computing ?

Also ,what about the chip partnerchip between AMD & IBM (? & Toshiba) - I expected more to come from that .
