AMD is simply transitioning to being the new VIA.
Let's see if JF_AMD is on that list.
Great post Stmok. :thumbup:
The conduct of AMD leading up to the launch, leaked benchs, interviews from former AMD designers.
There were plenty of hints if one wasn't...
Were you surprised by how Bulldozer performed? :confused:
Oh FFS!!! That is ridiculous.
That site is rabidly anti-Intel, anti-Nvidia, Pro-AMD.
Where are you getting your 5 billion dollar figure for...
Hans de Vries has become a radicalised AMDroid and also has major egg on his face with how BD has turned out.
Francois dropped the discussion...
It was clearly an honest observation on his part.
You weren't there to see it and even if you were, you have no record of reasonable...
All you pseudo CPU designers are kidding yourselves that you understand the PowerPoint slides.
When someone who does understand CPU design,...
He said a lot more than that.
He went onto God knows how many forums to deceive people, constantly stating that IPC was going up, then later on...
I think you missed the context of why I mentioned that.
People won't be able to by Thuban instead of Bulldozer, when Thuban isn't for sale....

Wouldn't the S8 also be a good match for the aktimates too?
Isn't all the texture troubles only on ATI cards?
And people reckoned I was a harsh critic of Bulldozer. :D
