Give credit where credit is due, AMD operates off 5% of the budget Intel does and still yeilds some good competition

Need to see what Haswell has to offer. If it's revolutionary then that could be a pretty big blow to AMD. Then again who knows. Steam Roller and surround computing could save em'.

Um, this is troll news and that's it...Virtually every major consumer PC company apart from nVidia has lost revenue due to lower sales, Intel included iirc.

I would like to consider they newer stuff AMD is bringing to the table rather than focus on what they are losing because of everything they have done.
Currently super high end consumer parts in the realm of Ivy-Bridge E aren't in particularly high demand and both AMD and Intel realize this. Intel wants to focus on better single threaded performance for all the apps that are coded for single threads (the vast majority) while AMD hopes to leverage this with HSA by forcing the single-threaded program to work over multiple threads (across the CPUs and GPUs). This way developers don't have to rewrite all of their applications but more performance can be attained without significant hardware reworking (at least that's how I think HSA works).
If HSA ends up working nearly as well as AMD says it will then I see a new era in computing. Based on their plans for their next generation of APU's only the next generation of processors will support it. This way AMD sells more chips but doesn't have to worry about licensing HSA (or so I think). A new future for AMD? Hopefully. Hopefully...

If I'm going to drop $400 or more on a platform upgrade it's going to have to be a stronger upgrade than a FX-6100. I'd rather chip in the extra $50 or so for a much stronger CPU.

I am not part of the 95% of the population either. These days I am absolutely ringing every last ounce of performance out of my Q6600 that I can. I need more, a lot more.

Why would you need new ram and cpu cooler?
What else would you need to add to that bare minimum?
There are plenty of capable AM3+ boards for under 150 bucks.

Might have some thing to do with AMD stock at all time low 2.40 a share. Its only a matter of time before AMD is de listed, or they ask for chap 11.

They screwed up when they bought ATI with $$$ they didn't have. Now ati isnt worth 10% of what they paid for it. Snoozedozer took them to the point of no return. Shame really. troll news LOL doh.gif

This year will be the telling. Console sales with some new CPUs/APUs coming out. If they can't make a buck this year, they never will.
