A Skype executive declined to comment earlier this month when asked whether the company had tested the performance of its software on both Intel's and AMD's dual-core chips. An Intel representative confirmed that there are no instructions that specifically enhance the performance of voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) software like Skype's in Intel's dual-core chips.
Likely, we'll see AMD going after any and all large vendors that may potentially be receiving kickbacks (or have had in the past). Whether or not any of the accusations is true, it's hoped that AMD's focus remains on their products, and that hopefully they spend a good deal of time fixing things like the supply issues we saw with the 3800+.
