Quanta is the one who choosed to use AMD product.
They are the one who came up with the layout of the laptop, they should be aware that GPU's create heat which has do be dumped somewhere.

This is a terrible argument. If I choose to buy a CPU based on its listed specs but its acutal spces are less than what was listed, the fauit lies with the one who specified the specs.

At this point you can not say Quanta's laptop design followed ATI's design specs and that the fabrication of the product was not a factor. The fact that the same chip was used in other lap tops made by the same company without problem does not seem to support Quanta's claim that the fault lies with ATI's product.... More likely they tried to save money during fabrication process anywhere they could and thought they could get away with a cheaper cooling solution for the north bridge. Penny wise and pound foolish.

However, if it was this... why would Quanta spend the time, money, and risk of suing of their suppliers then? rolleyes.gif

You do not do this without consideration/thought. The other line may be in a different form factor that was overengineered. i.e. A 10w chip was provided extra cooling because the other components on the combined heatsink required it. However, this design required less cooling and smaller heatsink. If Quanta engineers still keep the cooling within AMD spec, then they should have been fine. Just because something else worked does not invalidate this suit especially if we do not know the design differences.

Are there any Bulldozer laptop CPUs? There were not any yet. All the people blaming Bulldozer for a laptop product are hugely misinformed.

Ignorance is awesome. thumb.gif

I think it's more that they have an opportunity to trash BD so they take it......and please don't take this as defending BD.
