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?

Oddly enough, I cut out a bit about the Nissan GT-R being great for the sale of Sentras. ;)

Yeah, AMD really showed they were bush leaguers used to coming second. They found out it's easy to get the lead, but it's much harder to keep it.

I honestly don't know what the cost difference between designing a power miser and a performance beast would be. If they're just tweaking an old core for process shrinks, probably not that much, but if they're trying to increase the performance while being low power, I'd guess about the same. The only thing that would change would be the power budget in the latter process.

You have to wonder how much technology from those Isle of Mann TT victories filtered back to the Cub.
