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?

I agree....

Afterall, laptops will soon outsell desktops (if they aren't already) and mobility, power consumption and heat are key here, not the number of gigaflops.

They key word here is 'cool'. I have an old Acer with a Turion 64 MK-38 and the amount and heat and fan noise is unbelievably irritating, and the battery life sucks as well.

It would also help if AMD were more Open Source friendly.
