just a minor point, but i would take anything an ex employee says about a company with a big pinch of salt, no one leaves a company because they feel good about it. And anyone who has seen the inside of a company any company could write volumes on the things that company would not want the outside world to know about. its called business get used to it.
Yes BD is a dissapointment and yes AMD will advertise it using figures that support it and show it in the best possible light. Complaining about that is like buying axe deodorant and being surprised when it doesn't make you a chick magnet, Its called advertising if you want the truth its not like the facts and figures aren't out there to find.
