It's AMD's next generation Architecture for their CPU's. There's a lot of information to absorb so take your time and read it up.

Ya, heard the same thing. But over the past few years and checking out some benechmarks, I see those Xeons on top for performance (where I just assumed that server market would favor the better performing chips).

I was thinking about getting that Viewsonic tablet with the Dual ARM Cortex (I think) processor in it but I've decided that I've gone this long without on so I can wait a little longer.
Oh man, if you ever pick up a tablet, they are so much fun. Just in the mere simplicity of a touch screen, it is entertaining in itself.

Wow...sucks it can't play minecraft. Now I have an HP TX series tablet laptop which is great. The only bad side to it is the small battery in it. It really only lasts about 2-3 hours before I have to recharge but thankfully, majority of the classes I've been in all have power sockets near me so I can just plug it in anyway.
Is the TX the one with the hd3200 in it? I was able to get this one on sale because their next model was just being released (which was just an LED screen + 133mhz OC).

Ya, I'm really disappointed with the i3's internal GPU. I think it is more due to the nature of minecraft, but overall, at least this it can give HD playback better then my old netbook. (COH: Online replays )

Dunno. If i'm not mistaken though, they are still just progressing a long current roadmap with no changes. If they were to release a new Atom CPU, it definitely won't be anytime soon as AMD's isn't really on the market yet and thus isn't a competitor and so they really don't have a reason to do so. All we can do is hope the masses see that the next AMD netbook CPU spanks Intel and they can hold off on their purchases to get that AMD based netbook.
Let alone the GPU in bulldozer is miles ahead of what the intel's is in the lower wattage area. Even if they were to give it enough juice to be equivalent to their desktop side, it won't keep up.

I wonder why intel still hasn't picked up their game yet. I remember when they started to introduce the x3000 GPUs they were aiming to make a GPU that could game, but on lower settings. It never lived up to its name (except for bf2).

Actually with Xeon we are on par with them on the benchmark front. Sometimes we win, sometimes they win.

On the bike, its a custom built Knolly, a boutique Canadian bike:

Haro's are nice aren't they. Had one but someone stole it . I have really bad luck. But i do have a question about Bulldozer. Would you say that Bulldozer is worth waiting for? I am not sure i want to get into this but not sure if i should wait or jump ship on a Phenom II x2 555. Help would be appreciated, thank you.

That question is like asking "where should I go for dinner?" The answer is "it depends". You really haven't given enough data for anyone to make a decision.

Because it still is 4-6 months before the product launches.

4 Months ago, their was not much information out on Sandybridge, and it's only now (2 months before launch) do we have significant information on Sandybridge.

This is an AMD or Intel thing; it's the way business works.

Actually, we have released more information, far earlier, for bulldozer than for any other product that I am aware of (in my 5 years here).

Theres no use in complaining when AMD is going to launch, its not going to make it come faster. Just chill and wait. ^_-
