I have a strange feeling that AMD are simply marking time at this stage. AMD are supposed to issuing a press release tomorrow re: "Project WIN". The general consensus seems to be that AMD are heading towards being near-exclusively a manufacturer of portable/mobile/handheld devices- with some scuttlebutt pointing towards AMD securing an ARM licence...all rather odd since they gave away their wireless IP and ultraportable business to Qualcomm ($65 million) and Broadcom.I'd say a couple of generations behind Intel and SB tbh. They have an almost unimaginable amount of catching up to do. So much so, that I doubt they'll even try and compete with the top end Intel processors, and concentrate more on bang per buck, so to speak.
Not suffering to much I have my 1055T but I was hoping that the new Bulldozers would have benchmarked better. I was hoping to upgrade but now I will just stick with what I have and wait for the 1100T to fall in price and maybe pick one up.I hope you're not suffering too much being stuck with a Bulldozer build and all.
One problem with that selling point. With Intel you don't need to overclock the CPU to get performance far beyond what AMD ones provide. So yes it's cheaper to replace an AMD chip if you kill it while overclocking, but if you buy an Intel chip you won't even need to overclock to get the performance that the AMD chip you didn't buy would have given you.yRaz said:
Thing I like about AMD is that the parts are cheaper to replace if you kill them overclocking. Haven't done it too many times....enough for it to be a buying point though.
Walmart use the same marketing strategyThing I like about AMD is that the parts are cheaper to replace if you kill them overclocking.
IT"S YOU DAMMIT! You're the one costing AMD profitability. Pick it up fella'. I (and AMD) want to hear how you demolish board after CPU, after board...Haven't done it too many times....
