AMD - a lot of PowerPoint but no real product

Posted on Tuesday, May 22 2007 @ 02:00 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
DigiTimes just published a commentary about AMD's presentation of the new Puma notebook platform. They argue that AMD is doing a fine job of creating PowerPoint slides and presentations but has no real hardware to back things up:
While the Puma platform looks set to include technological features which will improve performance and battery-life for notebooks; according to AMD hardware based on the new platform is not likely to hit the market until mid-2008, i.e. one year from now. While it is nice to get a preview of upcoming products and technology, with AMD's recent track record of confirmed (R600) and speculated (Barcelona) product delays, and poorer than expected performance (HD 2900 XT), it is questionable whether, when (or dare we even say if) it is launched, Puma will meet the hype AMD is currently trying to generate though these early announcements.
