Hardware, Embedded Systems "After leading the design of Apple's mobile processors, which have powered the iPhone and iPad over the last few years, chip architect Jim Keller is returning to AMD to head up its microprocessor core design team, the chipmaker announced today. Keller is an industry veteran who brought plenty of experience to Apple's mobile processors. He was previously vice president at P.A. Semiconductor, which Apple acquired in 2008 for $278 million, and he went on to serve as a director of Apple's platform architecture group."

No Intel for me

Fortunately I can vote with my wallet. I've never bought an Intel CPU after buying up my first AMD K7 and I will keep doing that as long as I can. It's not that I have anything against Intel *now*, but better be safe than sorry. Also, AMD is still very competitive if you compare the price/power ratio. Normally people don't need the best of the best (and paying 1K for a CPU) and AMD is a very smart choice. Don't forget to add the motherboard cost to the CPU cost.
