  1. AMD released a graphic novel titled "The Legend of FX" last week in a rather strange effort to build some hype for the brand's revival later this year. The Legend…

    You are right, fixed.
  11. I dig the video. I think it is a bit cheesy but great -- one has to know the history of FX to appreciate it. Besides, this is anime, guys. If AMD wants a cool "toy story" type of animation, it would have been done that way.

    I think it's totally cool to change up and relax a little bit once in a while.

    I fear not even mid range flash "animators" can peak my interest in AMDs offerings for the most part.Even as coooool as flash animations with uninspired designs are...

    Remember the FX-60? It put every Intel part to shame in it's day.

    The Legend of FX takes some jabs at Intel while touting AMD's superior graphics...

    Well duh AMD, you did buy the number two graphics card maker, remember? How is you original business with the x86 CPU's doing btw? I hate seeing these jabs over who does better graphics, when it's really expected from AMD to do on-die graphics better than Intel. Yay for doing what was expected of you? Should be a relief after all these years of waiting for Fusion. The main reason you bought ATi right? 6 years ago...

    I thought this was a pretty darn terrible advertisement. I'd rather a simple, layman explanation of the Bulldozer architecture, as opposed to weird Japanimation. But I guess I'm a colossal nerd like that. :D

    I'd assume by merging ever more powerful integrated GPU cores into their processors is Intel's way of competing with similar AMD offerings.

    AMD is good at 'saying,' but Intel is definitely better at the whole 'doing' thing.

    I for one am purposely holding out on building myself a monster of a system, until the release of these new AMD FX processors. I've never built myself an Intel based system, never have and never will. My first system ever built used that brains of an AMD Duron processor, next there was one or two AMD Athlon processors, next will be the FX!

    Also when my box comes alive, it wont be being controlled by a Linux based O.S., getting tired of Ubuntu telling me what I can and can not do. What ever Windows O.S. is the rave at the time of my build will get my business, Windows 7, Windows 8, who knows! :)
