[CNET] AMD takes a Valentine's Day swipe at Intel

post #1 of 103

During the first half of today, only one V-day swag package arrived, and that was a box of Mortal Kombat candy, encased in an edible chocolate box. This was shortly followed by a somewhat more mysterious package--a single rose, wrapped in paper, hand-delivered from a local florist.

They're talking about Llano which as far as I know as nothing to do with Bulldozer but is for low power laptops, I might be wrong though, all the different AMD codenames have me a bit confused.

*Intel counter's showing AMD's red ink deficits in a v-day card: "Who's really fatal?"*

Don't put me in charge of marketing or wtv... I would be cruel as hell!
