AMD AMD has seen a few serious setbacks lately, especially with their Barcelona server processor, but it seems as if the company is trying hard to get things back on track. The first step in solving an issue is acknowledging it exists in the first place, and AMD CEO Hector Ruiz did just that last December. "We blew it and we're very humbled by it and we learned from it and we're not going to do it again." Reseller Advocate Magazine asks, are you ready to believe him?

AMD promess one CPU in 2007 and release it in dec 2007, the "phenomenal" CPU. Intel in response have the Peryn and yet the Core2 series. Most persons that have "fake" quad core did not mind if in benchmarks they perform better. A Phenom is nice on paper but with low frequencies, with cache bug, with incompatible mainboards (which mostly work after a bios update), makes them not so attractive.

The integrated memory contoller is a part of the next CPU of Intel, named Nehalem:

If AMD will not offer for real a CPU that compete, and of course a video card that compete, they will became the future Cyrix, runs well for today apps, run bad for tomorow ones, and at the end may be bought by nVidia or IBM.

I wanted to buy a Quad core from AMD, I've bought one but I was dissapointed, and I've sell the AMD box and I bought an Intel one, no comment for more.
