I'd prefer decent colour to more pixels. Current display technology looks atrocious, and it has nothing to do with resolution.

I haven't placed an order for any AMD based chipset or processor for any enterprise solution in a data centre for about 5 years now.

Last one was a Sun Fire X4640 running Opteron hex-core in 2010.

I believe AMD is currently dead for any 2-socket box 1RU / 2RU form factor.

my panasonic plasma had a green line through it 3 months into using it, took it back and they said couldn't repair, so I had to get an LCD

OLED is the future though right?

Yep LG has a couple of full sized OLED screens, one with HDR support coming out this year.

Poor bastards keep losing money despite having all them chippies in PS4's and XBoxes

AMD announces quarterly loss of $197 million, its fourth straight loss

Quote:
On Thursday, the ever-struggling AMD announced its fourth straight quarterly loss—at $197 million—putting total losses for the first nine months of 2015 at $557 million.

Over the last 17 years, the company has sustained a total net loss of nearly $8 billion.

As part of the earnings release, the company also announced a new joint venture with Nantong Fujitsu Microelectronics for assembly and testing.

The Chinese company has acquired an 85 percent share in AMD’s two facilities Penang, Malaysia, and Suzhou, China facilities, which will net AMD around $371 million.

The new venture seems like yet another desperate move on the part of the chipmaker that once saw itself as a scrappy underdog to Intel.

On Wednesday, Phil Rogers, the president of the Heterogeneous System Architecture Foundation, left AMD after 21 years to join rival Nvidia as its "Compute Server Architect." Earlier this month, the company also announced it was cutting 500 white-collar jobs, or about 5 percent of its global workforce

I must be the ONLY person who didn't really like them? I was always put off by the flickering that plasmas have, and they always seemed really dull? Not trying to troll and start plasma/lcd war here, genuine observation...

Personally I hope AMD can come back from this streak. Having some decent competition can only be better for us, the end user. My current PC is my first Intel build. Always used AMD previously and been quite happy with them.

Same here. AMD were always the underdog which I liked.

I agree. I'm all about colour and can't stand 4k displays. Refuse to have one. Fucken TN crap (mostly). Who the hell wants to game on a shitty, TN panel with limited, washed out colours? Oh, I forgot... hardkore refresh r8s mate!! I needz da refresh r8 for mah skillz!! LOL! Well, I'm primarily a gamer (yes I use Linux for gaming) and refuse to use anything lesser quality than AH-IPS. As for AMD, they are junk. Can't make good GPU's, CPU's or GPU drivers at all.

My 4850e is still going strong. Maybe that's the problem with AMD gear, it just keeps going?

I'd disagree there. Although I currently use a GTX680 it was a bit of a gamble as I've always been disappointed with nvidia cards in the past. All failed just outside their warranty period and I found the drivers to be a pain in the ass. Radeon cars however have been great. Only using the nvidia as it was a two DVI port cheapie from here so it doesn't really matter if it falls over.

As to AMD CPU's, well they've been absolutely fine. Switched to Intel for the current build as it was the best bang for buck available at MSY at the time but would have bought an AMD if there'd been one suitable.

For me it comes down to reliability and AMD have never let me down
