[PCMAG] Where Is AMD Heading?

It's even possible, added Nathan Brookwood, an analyst with Insight 64, that AMD could exit the year with a higher-performance part in the desktop and in the server market than Intel.
"AMD's development group has been executing very effectively for the last 24 months," Brookwood said. "They've had some snags ramping the 32-nm Llano product, which appears to be partially a problem with GlobalFoundries getting their 32 nm process ramped. But with Fusion, with the 'Brazos' products, not only did the chip come out on time but they had the OEM support."
Interesting Read.

Is Bulldozer's performance really such of a hinge on the company's future as everyone is claiming? I know OEM is the bread and butter of AMD/Intel and AMD looks to be coming out with some very good mobile chips/APU's. With a solid footing in that, even if they come up a bit lacking in the desktop realm they should be able to stay in business right? Mobile computing whether it be phone or notebooks, tablets or netbooks is going to become a larger market than desktop's if it hasn't already.

There is also the server market which Intel has generally had an iron grip upon, but depending on how the new architecture turns out AMD may be able to take a larger share of that segment as well. All in all I hope Bulldozer rocks and Intel gets a run for there money. Domination on either side for too long isn't good for us.

If AMD dominates at all, that proves most people who say Intel is faster, wrong.

Win for customers

Here's to hoping. More competition means better prices. I really want Bulldozer to just dominate for at least a couple quarters. It'd be interesting to see 980x chips drop in price.

The i7 970 just had a huge price slash from around £700 to £450 in the UK... 1366 is still a strong choice.

This just made me think of the thread that said AMD would stop producing processors soon.

Not wrong. People are saying Intel is faster, because right now they are faster. Duh. I'm pretty sure if AMD came out with a chip that was faster, people would be saying "amd is faster." Don't you think?
It's TURBO TIME!

It kind of, kind of isn't, they have to at least have Phenom II style competition to get the budget sector with Bulldozer (Imagine, an 8 core for the price of a Intel quad) but they can keep sailing along as they are for another generation at least just on GPU sales and Fusion sales, Fusion looks like its going to sell like hotcakes considering it nearly hits Core i3 performance with the power consumption of an Atom.

I think he's referring to the Intel fanboys.

All fanboys, whether they be AMD, Intel, nVidia or whatever, are stupid.

No much substance to the article. A lot of pointing out the obvious mixed with speculation.
