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?

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


Even on the desktop I can see it playing more of role. My girlfriend is looking to get a new computer and her number one requirement is that it must be as silent as possible, while still powerful enough to run 3Dstudio and AutoCAD. Also as computers start to 'invade' other rooms of the house I can see there being more and more of a market for silent or near silent computers that still have enough power to do some reasonably heavy lifting like playing video at 1080p.
