Intel makes performance claims, AMD rebuffs them
Posted by: admin on: 02/28/2006 02:46 PM [ Print | 5 comment(s) ]
News.com is running an article today about a performance claim by Intel that has been rebuffed by AMD.
Ouch. You can read the entire article over here.
| As might be expected, Advanced Micro Devices doesn't think much of Intel's performance claims for its upcoming Conroe and Merom products.|
"It's driven by the fact that they can't talk about their current products, because everybody knows their current products aren't very good," said Henri Richard, AMD's chief sales and marketing officer, in an interview with CNET News.com late Friday.
Its not Mini, Its HUGE

Who'd have thought back in the days of the K6-2 that AMD would even be around still?
At that point in time, they were bleeding from the bottom line, loosing to intel in all processor comparisions, and simply dying a not slow death.
Here we are, 10 years later, they not only are holding on, but making in manys opinion the superior product. Good job AMD.

It's all about the FPU... and the short pipeline.

Now that intel has dropped the netbust arch (or soon will) AMD will have to innovate to keep up.

It's all about hiring good engineers, instead of spending all your money on advertising and torturing the guys down at manufacturing to keep pushing a dead-end design.

I'll have to wait for reviews before falling for Intel's jargon, especially since you can easily argue that AMD has delivered the superior product ever since the original Athlon came out.
