I wouldn't mind being an early adopter for an AMD CPU... AMD isn't a fruity logo-manufacturer with a "don't buy revision A hardware" motto.


AMD lost me as a customer with the TLB bug that required turning off the L3 cache (see http://forums.amd.com/forum/messageview.cfm?catid=12&threadid=90116 ). They mishandled the situation, by getting benchmarks in a configuration that would ultimately not be deployed, and were so keen to downplay the bug they didn't publicize when it was fixed. So here we are, years later, and I'm not sure which chips from them I can trust, and ended up going back to Intel. A bit sad, really. Previously I was an extremely happy AMD user.
