Listen, and understand.

AMD is out there. They can't be bargained with. They can't be reasoned with. They will not feel pity, remorse, or fear. And they absolutely will not stop, ever, until their core counts reaches 9000.

If they make an 8 or 12 core with an IPC at least 80% as good as sandy bridge, with pcie 3 and ddr4 then I'm sold on AMD. I don't care about efficiency per core, since all game coming out will be optimized for 8 cores as per the new consoles. Our quad cores will most likely start to show their age.

That's pretty close to the definition of innovation.

That's an assumption. In any case, AMD seems to not mind introducing a new socket when the product demands it.

Don't know. I don't doubt that AMD has a DDR4 memory controller for its x86 products if it has one for ARM (much more recent product line). Also, they'll need one for the big Opterons because DDR4 matters just as much in the server space.

Get Opterons instead. /Discussion

Seriously, get server CPUs and mobo if you want to go muti-CPU.

CPU Engineering Samples can be pretty cheap. I got a pair of intel E5-2650ES for $330 in total. That is 8 cores per CPU.

But, but, g34 doesn't have led's, fancy heatsinks, or cool colors... I mean that's at least a 20-30% performance loss right there.

I still think the slide might be legit (althought it has errors, vishera was introduced late 2012,not in the beggining and kabini came mid-2013,not early) -it just isn't a true roadmap, it probably only includes confirmed products. If it is accurate, they may abandon x86.

Nobody from AMD has ever talked about a Kaveri successor publicly. This "roadmap" looks to have been constructed from various rumours we've all previously heard (Carizzo with 65W TDP max on FM2+ etc.).

Even if it was legit. They couldn't bother to format it the same as the rest of the slides? It just doesn't smell right.

PD success to me was the 8350, which was really impressive for the price, 9xxx was stupid, 6xxx was amazing for the price/performance.

They dont say they would be releasing SR... Just more PD lol
