[In] Why AMD Failed, Another Ex-Employee Confession - Page 2

post #11 of 177
Remember that there was a management and CEO change prior to Bulldozers release and the new guy canned a load of products.

Bulldozer couldnt be canned as it was nigh on release.

I'm more interested in the products the new CEO will be leading and how they do.

The source that is linked on Insideris leads to a MacRumors forum post about Apple considering adopting AMD chips...

Fabricated article or am I missing something?

Yeah it would be even worse for us if AMD went under. No AMD and Intel still sells the i7 2600K in 2015 for $300...that would suck.

"Yeah. Like replacing the 40-man team that designed A64 with a 250 man team for minor design changes."

...Wow. It should be common knowledge that smaller teams work better.

I mean, really, look at the P4. It had a massive design team...Guess where Conroe came from? A tiny team in Israel.

honestly bulldozer can still do something good, but it needs to be dirt cheap to do it

if it get a large enough market share consumer level programs will be pushed to better multi-thread support, meaning octo-core cpus would be needed, and thus push intel and amd to design(better for amd) octo-core cpus for the consumer since there is a market for them

no company would bring to market products that don't have a market to sell to, it's basic economics, it does suck they the first octo core cpu for consumers has trouble keeping up with the previous gen from the same company, but i see it as a necessary step forward. . .

would i buy or recommend a bulldozer cpu, nope.

There we go.

Bulldozer architecture is from the Dirk Meyer era, right? We can hope right that the new CEO puts to good work the new architecture... And refloat AMD again.


Man, more than ever, I wish I could get a job at AMD as soon as I finish my electronics engineering degree frown.gif

My school has co-op with AMD. There's a '99 graduate that interviews for co-op with AMD. He worked at SGI, ATI, and now AMD.

Lets not use blanket statements k?

I'd love to see your 5770 fold greater than it's nVidia counterpart.

Everyone has different uses for their cards, no one company is better than the other, else there would only be one company.
