  1. AMD took an important step forward in the embedded market today with the newest member of its Fusion APU family: the Embedded G-Series. Like other Fusion APUs unveiled prior to CES 2011, the new chip incorporates an x86 CPU with a DirectX 11-capable GPU along with an integrated DDR3 memory controller on the same die.

    That last remark about Microsoft using their new Gem (G-Series) in Surfaces 2.0 sounds like a real punch in Intels gut. This shows that Intel is dragging its collective feet with under wheelming products.

    Maybe we will see things heat up with Atom now that AMD is pushing into the market.
  3. Agree,in my opinion it was about time!!

    Even better, AMD should start attacking intels i5-2500K, then maybe they can attack their high end cpus. Hurry up bulldozer.

    I'd rather they not. Only enthusiasts care about the 2500K, and constitute a mere sliver of the market. As nice as it'd be to have a powerful workstation CPU, the real money is in the mobile sector, which will only continue to grow.

    Hopefully Bulldozer will do well, but after AMD's (boneheaded) sale of their Imageon to Qualcomm, they really need to put the pedal to the metal to make up for lost ground. Joe Public doesn't care about 2500K's, he cares about the thinnest, coolest laptop or smartphone, and AMD needs to deliver on the portable front if they want to stay relevant.

    Your absolutely right, but screw Joe Public I want bulldozer for my next build.

    For a long time intel got the lead with its atom, only the first "netbooks" which at that point they were not named as such had AMD Geodes (I owned one of those =) I guess that was like 3 years ago. Now you see some AMD's but in the 12,1" factor and still on a par with atoms but now... I've always loved AMD could consider myself a fanboy (the best part of this all is the price/performance you get which is what most of computer users like, like above stated there are some things for more enthusiast) but not that closeminded.
