AMD "The thing I find most interesting in [the] battle of silicon supremacy is just how unbelievably thick (or perhaps slow) AMD has been lately. For the entire life cycle of the Pentium 4 family, AMD was far ahead. The company made the best processors in terms of performance with cost efficiency in mind. However, it had a nice 1-1.5 years of time span where it could've evolved or innovated enough, but it didn't. Granted that AMD is still leading the desktop and server markets in terms of performance, it's not the point. The point is the lack of evolution and innovation from AMD."

I am buying a Sempron HP laptop for myself and a sempron 64desktop for my girlfriend this week. Guess what, I disposed all Intel alternative. I think Intel is doomed by the new ultra mobiles C7M and by open sourcing UltraSparc. I am waiting for a nice Desktop Sparc station sometime soon and a light OpenSource C7M laptop. If Intel wants to remain in business, they must consider XScale desktops seriously. They lack innovation and performance but XScales are a marvel. They should push them seriously. Linux/NetBSD is there to help them.
