ZD Net made a list of the most disappointing products of the year. One of these products is the AMD Phenom:
I’m not sure what’s wrong with AMD these days. The company seems to be spending too much time pushing wild ideas (which usually come with an insane price tag and even insaner power requirements) like the Quad FX platform and engaging in a public slanging match with Intel and too little time working on new, innovative products.
For the entirety of 2007 I’ve held the belief that AMD would come out with something worth buying, but that hope is now gone. I’m not sure what’s going on at AMD but progress seems to have slowed down drastically and I’m wondering whether my last Athlon 64 X2 processor will have eroded to dust before I buy another AMD branded processor.
Check it out over here. Other disappointments include NVIDIA's graphics card drivers, Hauppauge drivers, Blu-ray and HD DVD and Apple TV.
