How do you know I have a CPU? Someone could have printed out this article and handed it to me to read. But since I wrote this comment, I guess it does mean I have a CPU ;)

I'd like to watch this video, but all I see are huge pixels and artefacts.

Shouldn't AMD be working on catching up to the Core i7?

Well, AMD (or rather Global Foundries) is still behind Intel on the state of 32nm production. Considering the low yeilds from TSMC I think the graphics division should consider using Global Froundries 45nm production to make the lower end chips as I'm sure trying to switch the RV870 to 45nm would require extra work and probably result in lower speeds.

Yes, because we all know marketing monkeys design the BEST CPUs...

LOL Wafer silicon doesn't come from "sand". There's only a few places around the world that have the raw material for which silicon wafers are made. You can't just go down to the ocean and scoop up a bunch of sand; way too many impurities in it to be useful.

While a nice video, it was a bit too much drama style, especially the intro. Stop spinning the camera around and around!

Well, I believed AMD's marketing team back in early 2008. Not again until AMD actually have something to show.

That's what I'm sayin'
I even went to their own website, thinking the version Youtube was just badly compressed by some kid who didn't know better.
But their own hosted version is fugly!
