[hardware zone] AMD - Loaded and Back in Action

Today, AMD's competitive position is perhaps the strongest in the last two years and that's just based on recent developments in the first quarter of 2008. Breaking down what has happened recently, the company managed to roll out its complete lineup of Radeon HD 3000 series of graphics processors, launched the new AMD 780G and 780V chipsets for the new mainstream and business computers, and has managed to deliver the updated Phenom '50' series of processors that use the new B3 silicon revision. Correspondingly, this also means the Opteron processors are now shipping for mass availability in addition to its close OEM partners. All of these developments are really much awaited entries for AMD to get back into the market and from what we heard at a recent AMD media briefing, it looks like exciting times are ahead.

We managed to catch up with several of AMD's top executives such as John Taylor, AMD's Director for Product and Strategic Communications, as well as Bryan Low, Vice President and Managing Director of AMD in South Asia, to better understand where AMD is today. So read on and be surprised what's in the pipeline. It may not break Intel or NVIDIA yet, but AMD will surely give them something to think about.

Been allot of good news rolling out. I believe it is only the first step. K10.5 (i believe is Shanghai, the 6 core monster) and HD4K is where their true comeback may lie.

QFT. I'm not expecting them to take back the performance crown with either RV770 or K10.5 (though I think they will be close in the graphics department), but it does seem that AMD is getting back on its feet again after the ATI purchase. It's one step closer to the point where they can afford to try and compete in the high end.

Edit: It's nice to read an article that's fair to AMD rather than one that spreads doom and gloom about their future, and doesn't freak out about the way overplayed TLB issue.

As a side note, AMD really needs to kick their marketing up a few notches for the Tri-core + 780G consumer combo yesterday.

Nice to see AMD back on the brighter side of things. Hopefully the 4000 series graphics will keep the momemtum going.

Interesting.

Can't wait for Computex, 45nm AMD chips, Nehalem, R770, 280 GTX...

We can finally see what they have up their sleeve.
