[PCWorld]AMD Must Double Processor Market Share to Survive - Page 3

post #21 of 29
A recent article with AMD Rep stated already that they were focusing on a completely new architecture aside from the true quad in the Phenoms.Plus they added they were going to add some focus on higher Mhz as well.

That being said. The Phenom wasn't all they made it out to be,but it wasn't that bad either. Bang for the buck it was a decent CPU in my opinion.

Its ok chuck norris is getting his cpu lineup ready, 8 core clocked at 6ghz and can oc to 8ghz+ easy, based upon 0.5nm he took a nano meter and pumled it with his fist to get 0.5nm

Its funny you should say that we need more competition out there because in the early 90's we had more. but Intel used its communist like tactics and wiped them out. Thats is a big part of the anty-trust lawsuit is about

I've also read an articel that AMD put out 2 days ago talking about improving there cost of production and limiting waist in production as well as lowering thier over all cost per chip.

this is a link to all the news you will need about AMD's financial condition.

I like how people complain "Amd needs to do this, Amd needs to do that." Well when you have 13% or less of a market, and your competitor has the rest, your resources are limited!!! Considering that AMD has never had the market share Intel has had, AMD has put out some amazing products and it was quite an achievement to pull ahead of Intel in the early part of this decade. It's unfortunate that it took them 2 years complete their quad architecture, but clock for clock it's 20-30% more efficient then the K8 architecture, which wasn't magic, and you can't achieve that "Slapping cores together."

As Brutuz said, Intel has done a lot back in the days of the P4 when they were underperforming to hold AMD down (ie. huge rebates in return for not selling AMD chips). That, in turn, led to less sales of AMD, generating less profit that could be used for R&D, leading to today's downward cascade of misfortunes for AMD.

AMD is already preparing new architecture to replace low-performing Phenom for 2009. (Search the news sections, it was sometime ago.)

PS. With low-performing I want to say that (Performance/Clock)/Core ratio is lower than the C2D/Q's one.
