    Is it just me or does AMD seem to be getting back on their feet?

    Come on AMD i've got about 9 months left in my 939 machine before it becomes a server, i'd prefer to buy another one of your chips.

    we will see, we will see...

    I mean K10 once sounded promising too, like several years ago, before the multiyear delay, the reduction of clockspeeds, the lack of avalaiblity of the server parts and the various bugs, so I wont even get the slightest bit excited until the product is in retail and there are mutliple reviews of retail parts around.

    is it just me or does that photo of the person holding the wafer look like they're about to emo'splode and slash their wrists screaming suicidal emo crap?.

    its too bad that this shift to 45nm wont bring a architecture revision and increase the efficiency of phenoms more than the usual shift to smaller manufacturing processes.

    I read elsewhere that there is going to be a 10% increase clock for clock so there should be that architecture revision that you wanted.

    The 10% increase comes from them patching the microcode issue that was fixed by the BIOS patch that slowed the current phenoms down by 10%, so it's not a revision just a we fixed our screwup.

    For them it's all about pricepoint, not complete innovation. Just give the consumer what they want: a decent CPU that costs less than Intel's and performs either the same or better.....it's the only way for them atm....

    I wasn't yesterday - their press conference was BS, but after a refreshing no-BS chat with some top guys at AMD this evening, I'm hoping they hit their targets to make an interesting Q3/4 onwards for everyone.

    Absolutely, I totally agree.

    I had another, more private meeting today with some senior people at AMD and while quietly confident they said the whole reason why they've said "2H" is to not give dates because they don't want to lead people down the wrong path. Im hoping because I want to see some competition, that's all. We need AMD.

    Very true, plus on a whole I like there platform philosophy. Sure spider may have gotten off to the worst possible start but assuming they can pull a decent Phenom out of the bag now that they have proven they can make competitive chipsets along with good, cheap graphics I'm looking forward to the AMD future.

    Still as I really need a new rig in the next month or so it may well have to be Intel based.

    im more than happy with my 3870
    the new AMD chipsets and boards look awesome
    bloody phenom pulls the whole thing down and im now looking at x38/x48 + yorkfield instead :(

    big shame, really hope 45nm phenoms let them scale up to proper clock speeds and do it soon

    Leslie Sobon, AMD's director of product & brand management, desktop division - atleast in May 2007.

    So this is who we blame for FASN8 first being announced... and then scrapped? (bit-tech's missing a devil smilie)

    Thank you!

    And, uh, she's too hot to pin the blame on.:nono:

    She might give me a stiffy by just looking at her photo.:duh:
    Hang on, give me a minute.
