    He sounds like he wants to be 'a good man'
    you better have more to offer than that if you fight intel.

    He doesn't want to fight Intel: he was ousted as AMD's CEO in 2008.

    There is a lot of hostility here. I don't know about you guys but I usually learn a lot when I fail, usually more than than when I succeed.

    "He doesn't want to fight Intel: he was ousted as AMD's CEO in 2008."

    Yeah, i meant maybe he was the wrong guy to fight intel in first place.

    I'd totally manage to run intel / amd, i mean i've built loads of pcs and even modded a couple of cases.
    Here's my advice to the intel new guy
    Wanna sell more cpu's?
    make them sexy, run some ads where the chicks dig the guy with the fast intel chip (with flames). slow is never sexy - the amd guy cant go to the party cause he's still waiting for super-pi to finish.

    Yes, splitting up AMD into Flash*, CPU-Design, CPU-Production and Graphics-Design, then killing two of these sub-divisions by going fabless and spilling all your production knowledge (which helped in designing the final product), that all worked really well for AMD, didn't it?
    *looks at stock* :waah:

    He's right about Intel using it's leverage to prevent AMD from making money back then (when they still could) though.

    *back when Ruiz got to the helm, AMD was a big player in Flash
