AMD gives Intel pre-IDF PR slaps

Posted on Tuesday, August 19 2008 @ 21:17:57 CEST by

Intel is holding a Intel Developer Conference (IDF) this week and as usual AMD can't resist to draw some attention to its own products. ExtremeTech published some slides they received from AMD:
For the ExtremeTech regulars, AMD's message was a familiar one: in graphics, AMD's strategy is to emphasize the visual realism of its graphics processors, leaving the "speeds and feeds" mentality to Intel. The exception is the server space, where the company is proud that three out of the top five spots in the TOP 500 supercomputer list are designed around Opteron processors.

So far, pretty straightforward. And then the mud started flying.

I didn't take down all of the quotes, but enough to give you a flavor. I also snapped some screenshots as a visual respresentation of what company executives talked about. And these weren't low-level product managers, either, but Randy Allen, the newly promoted senior vice president of the Computing Solutions Group, and Rick Bergman, senior vice president of the Graphics Products Group, or ATI.
