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?

If they can make a cpu that runs cooler while performing higher than Intel, provide a cmopetitive GPU and continue to show support for cross platform drivers; I'll come back in a heartbeat.

It broke my heart to not buy AMD and ATI for my last upgrade. It was the first non-ATI gpu I've put in my machine but the real-use benchmarks favoured Intel at a cooler temperature, the 8800gpu (not much else to say there) and nVidia showed better cross platform support at the time.

Here's too hopeing..
