AMD is developing an answer to Intel Woodcrest

Posted on Monday, Mar 13 2006 @ 21:00 CET by Thomas De Maesschalck
In an interview with Digitimes, AMD's Henri Richard confirmed the company is working on an answer to Intel's upcoming Woodcrest processor.
He told the wire in an interview that AMD is disclosing less of its future plans than people would like it to. That's true - we got stood up by AMD at the Intel Developer Forum last week.

Richard acknowledges that our report, which you can find here, has more than a kernel of truth to it.

Richard also takes the opportunity to have a general go at Intel architecture and warns that AMD has more than one answer to its eNiGMA technology - which he claims is really based on the Pentium III with a dash of the Pentium 4. AMD will pursue an "evolutionary" course. Henri Richard is "glad" Intel is "aligning" on AMD. Disingenuity, he's heard of it.
