    I want to know if there are plans for more Gaming/Enthusiasts Socket AM3+ models or is that platform going to be discontinued.

    Am I the only one blind enough not to see any product manager for CPUs?
    Actually, most of the "key" people are actually from the GPU department wherease AMD not only manufactures GPUs . It is the CPU area that we have questions about!

    The obvious big question here is what is to become of the FX line and will we be seeing high-performance Steamroller based CPUs without integrated graphics. I doubt the answer is going to be anything very concrete though.

    no, you're not the only one. I don't see how you're surprised. obviously as enthusiasts here at Tom's we're all interested in AMD's plans with both CPUs and GPUs, but the timing of this AMA clearly indicates that it is being used as extra publicity raise awareness and boost sales for their new line of GPUs.

    Other than that, I agree, I've wanted an AMA from AMD for a long time. and just because the guests are biased toward GPUs, there's nothing in the rules saying we can't ask about CPUs

    Your 100% right the only questions I have for them are about CPUs so if it's just GPUs it's not going to be of interest to me. There has been lots of info about their GPUs, its the future of the FX line and the AM3+ socket that inquiring minds want to know. They don't need to send 5 guys to talk about GPUs, send someone with insight to what is happening with FX line.

    When can we expect to see a Mantle performance demonstration? They must have some tech demos, and possibly third parties working on software that takes advantage of Mantle that have their own tech demos illustrating performance benefits.
