AMD wins battle over brand in USA - Page 3

post #21 of 48
This is quite possibly one of stupidest rulings I have ever heard. What, do we have "afirmative action" for the technology market now too? AMD's technology is great and all, but they need to learn how to play the capitalism game.

Please clarify. What avenue would you suggest that they pursue? Where is AMD's problem?


Many professionals consider the legal system as a strategic course of action. I suppose that falls under the "capitalism game".

I too think the ruling is rather lame. It's not the goverment's and other big firm's fault that they only have Pentiums in their PCs. Intel was the only reliable chip manufacturer for a long time, so it was a sound business decision to go with them. Who would you buy from if running a business, a well know and respectable company or a small and obscure one? In my opinon this is a low blow from AMD, yet smart and strategically sound. I just hope AMD will be strong enough to withstand Intel's comeback (and there will be one).

We can only help, Even though i personally think AMD was a little selfish here, but i guess there making things fair even if its stupid just becasue there jealous that Intel dominates most Government sectores.

OK waaaaaaa,For AMD......
NOW all we need is a government appointed group to enforce it .....AMD has created new jobs. AMD has really kicked Intel in the nuts on this one. I don't care earthier way I like to spend my money on whats best for the job. I don't know the real in depths of the computer world or the government so I'm just sating. SO which PROCESSOR is best for the programs that the Government runs?????? It like this..... Intel is the first name that ANYBODY think of when they hear computers and I'm not starting a P*S*SI*N*G match

The problem is that AMD needs to put on their big boy pants, and learn how to play the corperate game with the big boys. This legal stuff is rediculous. I think AMD has more lawsuits against Intel than fat people against McDonalds.

Yes AMD want there Fair share even though it is Actually there fault for not getting out there into the Other businesses fast enough and Intel are much faster with the Whole corporate thing. AMD only have themselves to blame IMO.
post #30 of 48
Actually, I've got plenty of old products from AMD. I have an old ISA VGA card that has AMD memory controllers. Also, we used to have an AMD X5 90MHz processor for the longest time, and we didn't upgrade our computers at all between 1995 and 1999. AMD has always been reasonably reliable. Only problem is that they're found in cheap OEM systems, which tend to be unreliable.
