Why is it that every time I read an editorial about AMD, it starts with the author portraying them as a sinking ship and ends with them begging to come out with a product that can compete with Intel's Core 2 series? Sure, AMD's Athlon 64 series of processors has been eclipsed by Intel's latest Core 2 series, but has everyone forgotten about the past? Read on and share you thoughts on AMD!
"The take home message here is that AMD, from my point of view, is not a sinking ship. They just need to make sure they get out their next generation of processors and chipsets out on time. AMD has been delayed getting numerous products out the door as scheduled and that is without a doubt hurting them. Sure AMD will have the first 'true' quad-core processor, but how many consumers really cares if something is true or not? Could you imagine walking into Best Buy or Circuit City and hearing a sales associate telling a customer "This one is better because it's native quad-core, but the other one is quad-core".
