In lieu of recent events, this news does not surprise me... It's a shame to see how AMD is heading back to its underdog beginnings.

AMD took the performance lead, but Intel knew they screwed up and went back to the lab and designed Core 2... AMD has screwed up with Phenom... They need to scrap this core as soon as they can like Intel did with Prescott and move on to the next unless they can pull something amazing off with their upcoming die shrink.

AMD has been the Underdog for a while now (again) and it looks as if this trend will continue for at least the foreseeable future............. :shock:

And I used to really like AMD, they used to be all I owned and had in my house at one time.

Ahh AMD, loving them is a little like loving an unfaithful woman you might get a little satisfaction but you never know where she's going afterwards.

Man, should should give someone a call at AMD. After hearing you say that, it makes me wonder if they actually would do that and learn from their mistakes, or be like a dog and eat its own barf... :vom:

That quote reminds me so much of when I was in the Navy and dating a model. She was a blast to be with, but you never knew what the next f'd up thing she was about to do. I could only see her for three months at a time, and that's not because my ship went out to see all the time...
