AMD isn't attending Intel's Developer Forum this year, instead they are sending "Multi-Core Processing for Dummies" books to the IDF.
Last week, AMD somewhat surprisingly confirmed that it won't book a hotel room to host press briefings parallel to the Fall Intel Developer Forum, which will open its doors on Tuesday, 26 September.
However, AMD couldn't help to completely abandon the tradition of taking advantage of the event and sent out a booklet to tech journalists. Presented as a special edition of a popular tutorial series, we received a "Multicore Processing for Dummies" in our mail. The 32-page booklet, published by Wiley, is accompanied by a note that states:
"We aren't attending this year's IDF, but were hoping you could pass something on to Intel for us. Included is a little something that we think Intel and its customers should find especially useful."
The booklet doesn't really contain much new, it's just a rewrap of the stuff you can find on AMD's website. More info at TG Daily.
