AMD's response to Intel's announcements

Posted on Tuesday, September 18 2007 @ 23:03:55 CEST by

Intel is making the news this week with lots of new announcements at the Intel Developer Forum in San Francisco and AMD decided to counter the first day announcements with a YouTube offensive.

They also make some fun of Intel by pointing out that they are already shipping some of Intel's new technologies, in some cases even for several years:
What's amazing is that many of the "groundbreaking, innovative new technologies" are close facsimiles of technologies AMD pioneered, is already shipping, and in some cases, has been shipping for years.

For example, products that are more than a year away, like Nehalem (compare to native Quad-Core AMD Opteron), and QuickPath (compare to AMD Direct Connect Architecture and HyperTransport) are simply Intel's admission that AMD was right all along about an integrated memory controller being the key to a superior processor architecture.

Later, Intel talked about its efforts to integrate graphics processors and CPUs with its Larrabee project, which should be seen as nothing more than proof positive that AMD had it right with its acquisition of ATI and continuing development of AMD Fusion processors, due in 2009.
The first YouTube, which is hosted by Randy Allen from AMD, discusses the AMD quad-core architecture:

There's also a video from Leslie Sobon who introduces the new triple-core Phenom processors:

And furthermore, they also published a video in which you can see Patrick Moorhead comparing the gaming and video capabilities of an AMD and Intel based computer. The Intel system does a really bad job in this video but on the other hand I don't think that a lot of people are going to play games on a Intel GMA 3000 IGP.
