The Future Lies With Phenom
Now, in mid-2008, it’s no secret that AMD’s CPUs are struggling to keep up on the performance front. But there are a few promising prospects. Early tests of the 45 nm Phenom show interesting results and the Fusion, a cross between a GPU and a CPU, seems to be making progress as well.
Let’s hope that AMD’s financial problems are only temporary, and that they’ll be around for many more years to compete with Intel in the x86 processor arena.
Where the intel article seemed to overshadow intel's little victories, this article seems to gloss over AMD innovation (though i'll admit that i didn't recall the bit about the Intel chip, either the pentium or pentium pro, that gave incorrect values for mathmatical equations)
Both articles really need alot more detail added. As i've actually ranted about the history i'm reffering to in the comments section of the intel article as well as many other's i won't re-hash it.
This is like viasat history - only more specific and technical
AMD 486 @120 Mhz was making my friends that bought an early Pentium red with envy.
Someone gave me a AMD K5 system.
Thanks for the article.
I have quite a few chips from both makers, including the AMD 40MHz 386, and an Intel 386 & 387 33MHz cpu's, which are quite scarce...
