Features Radeon GPU.

Yeah me too.

IBM: "So what are you plans for your next generation high end CPU?"
AMD: "Well we were thinking about adding more cores because you can never have too many right?"
IBM: "..."

As for IBM and AMD... Like others have said... it's nothing new.

Well, its big news because, as far as I know, the first time IBM has made x86 CPU's

That means they will work with things like windows and OSX, previous IBM architectures were powerful CPU's, but completely incompatible with regular consumer software and OS's

I'm not so optimistic. IBM was great for sometime, but considering they were never able to scale the PowerPC 5 chip down to fit laptops, and their whole existence practically going toward servers/consoles in recent years... I dunno... just doesn't make me think anything they do will compete with Intel for quite some time, if ever.

I don't think you understand what outsourcing means. AMD is having IBM manufacture chips for them. IBM isn't coming out with their own x86 chips.

I love how whenever a manufacturer launches a product these past few months, its always been "quietly".....corsair "quietly" launches braided cables, razer "quietly" launches the blade..... ph34r-smiley.gif

This is such great news. Now they just need a research agreement with IBM like the one that brought K8 into the world.

lol. This is exactly how it is right now.

I'd like to see design their CPU's and GPU's (if they can do a better job with GPU's, which they could).

well the competition will heat up now finally

being a fan of intel or not has nothing to do with it.

being a "fanboi" only helps the company in which you decide to "devote" your money to. no body wins when that happens except for the manufacturer. healthy competition is needed, if amd/ibm can bring a chip out that rivals sandy-E at a lower price point dont you think that could improve the current pricing for the computers we build? just like how the AMD bulldozer fan club was basically created out of spite, do you think amd was thinking "wow, we really screwed this up" or "looks like theyre gonna buy it anyways"?
