Hector Ruiz, we are laughing at you. Not with you.

I was hoping that AMD would some how get it's derailed train back on track with the supposed benchmarks that were to be released. Forever I have waited for a DX10 card from ATI, but nothing.

AMD is quiet as a mouse about how it is going to compete in the CPU and Graphics market. Hector hasn't even been talking the talk, just mumbling unclear marketing lingo that means nothings because it is so unspecific. It is like listening to Bill Clinton defend himself against having an affair with Monica.

Well, now we know why.

http://biz.yahoo.com/bw/070423/20070422005085.html?.v=1

AMD is spending forever to get a processor to Market that will be a generation behind. Too little, too late.

We can only hope that AMD keeps ATI management around to help AMD make the transition to a Graphics card company. Please Hector, don't run ATI into the ground too. Your company had the lead for 2 years and did nothing but squander the momentum.

Today should have been a day of released products (R600) and benchmarks (Barcelona)...instead the press at the event gets NDA's and we have heard ....nothing....
April 23, 2007 4:13:20 PM



8O Wow, that's the biggest load of bullshit I've seen since the local fertilizer warehouse relocated. "SPECcpu2006 benchmarks clearly indicate the performance advantages of the AMD Opteron™ processor over the Xeon 5160"? "It’s all proof positive that customer-centric innovation wins over hype"? "industry-leading performance-per-watt"? Best, though, was their advantage because they use "DDR2 memory" .

And I appreciate how the so called printable version has a black background. Thanks, there goes my ink cartidge, and when it comes out of my printer I'll have to hang it out to dry on my clothesline with a pan beneath it.

I don't know if AMD PR is trying on purpose to become a case study on how to implode a corporation, but it certainly is succeeding! 8O

But their flash animation on the AMD site comparing the true quadcore to the "Other" quadcre is SOOOOO exciting!
April 23, 2007 4:23:23 PM

The flash animation is neat yet all i hear is "Direct Connect is good, FSB is bad" and that about 300 times. Then they go to clockspeed means nothing. What will they ramble about once Intel gets its memory controller on die?

you got that right.
the flash was good, but that line simply forced me to turn off the damned window. it was annoying the h3ll out of me :roll:
April 23, 2007 4:38:24 PM

the flash is nothing but PR bullcrap. it gives nothing new that people dont already know about performance of CPU's

as far as I can tell. All it's telling me is that they've taken the A64 and made it a X4 like they did for the X2. Thats not a new architecture. Thats not "K10" but K8 allover again in a new package

come on AMD we need more than that!

The truth is that amd is advertising the superiority of on-die controller ever since they introduced it. While i think it is a better solution than Intels FSB, what they state in their PR is simply wrong. A slow Hypertransport is just as much a bottleneck as a slow FSB and right now i don´t see Intel having trouble with it. That PR stuff worked when they had the faster product - people believed it, even though it wasn´t really true back then either.
I´m really, really eager to see what they will advertise once Intel has more GHZ, better Power consumption AND an on-die memory controler, because it will happen.

Well, I saw the Flash presentation and it convinced me! Who cares about benchmarks! Who cares about delayed intros! AMD rules!

I would have to agree with you AMD drools and Intel Rules at present. Say it together now:

We need benchmarks!
We need benchmarks!

Maybe Hector has decided to distract the attention of the press from a nonfunctioning K10/R600 demo by directing them to gaze at some prime Tunisian Camel Toe.



This is a Camel Toe. Get your mind outta the gutter! :twisted:

I'm embarassed for AMD. At least if you are being beaten, go down gracefully. The outrageous claims with no substance when you look at the fine print are offensive to me. Don't do the stupid word games when you talk. Don't say that Barcelona will crush Intel and then put out press releases just before the benchmarks are to be released clearifying that this is clock per clock (as if they didn't realise Intel has a clock advantage).

Your AMD fanboys might be fine with it, average Joe don't know shet might not catch it, but I'll be damned if I ever listen to anything AMD puts out about their products. AMD could say they invented cold fusion and it wouldn't get me to buy their stock. :evil: 
April 23, 2007 5:33:35 PM

OMG! AMD INVENTED COLD FUSION!?!!?

is that faster than the Core 2 Duo?

I MUST BUY!!!

:(  Damn AMD, they really shot themselves in the foot. I feel sorry for the people at ATI right now. AMD brought them on the sinking ship, and it looks like ATI might go down with them. While I am currently using a Nvidia card, my other cards were all ATI. I hope to heck that ATI somehow survives AMD's incompetence.

Yeah I never thought about that. How pissed would you have to be right now if you were a long time ATI employee? They got retirement plans and stock options tied to this.

Here are the benchmarks we were promised. This is overall performance in Multiple Benchmarks.


AMD 2.5 barcelona :---------------------
Intel 2.5 Conroe. :----------------
Intel 3.0 Conroe :----------------------
Intel Penryn 3.3 :----------------------------


Sure it is not a fancy power point like AMD gives us, but it has just as much validity as AMD's presentations so far.

LOL submit it to TheINQ, they'll probably post it. Actually, they probably wouldn't, seeing how your Penryn bar is longer than the K10. Charlie wouldn't allow it, he just wouldn't. :roll: :lol:

Back in the Netburst days Intel could have found one benchmark that they lead on and claimed 'This benchmark clearly shows that we rule!'. Do ya reckon AMD would cried about that?!

Intel should find the one single benchmark that shows Clovertown having the biggest advantage over Opteron and then post it on their website. "AMD lied! We're 200% faster! Look at this one benchmark!"

Epsilon84, r0ck and albundy2 please stop laughing at the photo I posted. I was exclusively referring to the extremities of dromedaries. I don't know what you're thinking of, but whatever it is, I'm sure it's gross. :twisted:

Looks like all of Wall Street will be laughing at Hector this morning! AMD is now a junk bond and they're floating $2.2B of unsellable notes!

It's gotta be something in the water over at AMD HQ. Has to be... 8)

I don't understand that picture or why it somehow stirs something inside me and makes me feel aroused. Can you maybe post the rest of the camel for me :D 

Hector isn't in trouble, just look at the benchmarks that I released in this thread. I hope they don't come after me for breaking the NDA, but it was just too impressive to keep to myself. Those lines represent {[(3.14 * average FPS/Encoding time * Average Watts] ^ 2 ] * the time it took to calulate Pi to 1 million}/ current stock price .

I don't run some fly by night benching evaluation that uses smoke and mirrors to determine which processor is better :wink:

Ok Hector it is now 1 day from May, as in may we get some f*ing benches on your beloved 50% better than Intel processor. I mean throw us a frigging bone here.

It sucks when you get caught lying doesn't it Hector. Do you really think that people will forget what you said if you put off releasing the benchmarks. All that spouting from your blow hole didn't even help your stock prices.

Anyhow, I just wanted to put this back on the first page of the forum so you would see it when you come to work Monday morning. That way when you take a break from surfing porn in your office and come to the forum it will be right here waiting for you. btw: I know your screen name is Baron Matrix. :wink:

Another delay and releasing it @ 1.6, nice job Hector. AMD is gonna end up being bought up, chopped up, and spat out.

June 9, 2007 5:26:07 AM

Actually, I would rather be laughing at Henri now..

"Before we used to win every benchmark, and now we win 50%".

humm how about 0%? or better yet, -50%, since Barcelona can only be clocked at 1.6Ghz at the moment, and not yet available.

Another scenario is that he claimed, Barcelona will trump Intel's fastest offering by 40%. Why? Because the "estimated performance benchmark" said so.
