AMD Says Intel Nehalem Microarchitecture Copied Their Design

Postby Apoptosis » Fri Aug 15, 2008 11:44 am

Today, AMD’s top CPU and GPU executives, Randy Allen and Rick Bergman, covered a number of key industry topics that are sure to get lots of attention during IDF in a conference call with the press today. They disclosed the usual AMD news about upcoming products, but this slide took the cake...

I think AMD just called out Intel!! AMD included the slide as a joke and mentioned that Imitation is the greatest form of flattery!!

AMD and Energy Efficiency don't belong together unless you are talking about the HD 48xx series compared to Nvidia. Phenom = powerhog although Deneb does look very promising.. now the question is, when will Deneb finally hit the shelves and will it get stomped by Nehalem.

QuickPath Interconnect (QPI) is Intel's version of AMD's HyperTransport, which has been (is) a highly successful core-to-core communication technology. Of course, QPI is exactly the same, it is twice (?) as wide as HT, but the bandwidth provided by HT is already more than enough.
