AMD's new patent is an awkward copy of Intel's Lakefield architecture

Intel, AMD and Nvidia are all as bad as each other. It’s just dim fanboys that think otherwise.
They are definitely not, Intel is worst scum then you have nVidia and then AMD. Maybe if AMD was in a stronger position they would be trying to pull off still like the other two but they are not at the moment at least

Nope they are all the same mate. You will learn this over time trust me. AMD really aren’t better than Intel. I pity the newbies who genuinely believe they are.

I'm 100% not a newbie, I've been into computers for long enough to know Intel will do anything to stay on top, how many times have they been caught bribing someone to not use AMD's processors?

Give this a watch

Yeah I’ve seen it, adored is very good at leaving lots of things out.

Im not really interested in setting you straight. You can believe AMD are saints all you like. Youl learn eventually.

You have been given evidence about Intel's dirty tricks. You however have shown zero evidence about AMD doing same.

So you're as wrong as possible.

And McDonald's, Burger King and Wendys all make hamburgers. This is nothing new, they copy each other all the time that is what keeps them successful. It's the implementation of those patents that is most important.

As long we know the history of both Intel and AMD, we can safely say that Intel is the much worse one. If AMD starts doing stupid things in the future too then so be it... we'll deal with it just as we have with any company that was beloved before.

Just look at where Blizzard is right now. You can use it as a study case of how fast fans can turn against you. No company is immune.

Ah AMD returning to their roots! They have a history of copying Intel.
And before I get some triggered fanboy hurling abuse at me for saying this, I have the proof..
https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/AMD_Am9080
At their start AMD has been producing superior CPUs for radar analysis and general computing that had a lot more advanced architecture than Intel. AMD processors were looking like alien technology compared to Intel's crap at that time.

I'm a computer programmer and when I read the AMD specs back then, with 192 general-purpose registers, organized in 12 banks of 16 registers, where each bank was overlapping with the previous and next, allowing for turbo-efficient function calls.... I was drooling all over my keyboard. Unfortunately, I was making programs for PCs, which means for the shitty Intel architecture.

But contrary to the popular belief, there is more money in desktop computing than in military contracts. So the AMD management have decided to downgrade their architecture to Intel level, and start producing cheap Intel-compatible CPUs, using crappy and backwards Intel architecture. And immediately, AMD CPUs were much faster than those from Intel. Intel needed many many years to catch up with AMD and eventually they managed to produce faster CPUs.

AMD injected some of their know-how to improve the crappy Intel architecture. They brought 64-bits to the table. The CPU you currently use, whether Intel or AMD, uses the AMD64 architecture.

Oh my, I wonder what will AMD think of next... A whole lot of speculation going on in the comments when there's no telling whether their ideas will come to fruition.

Um actually no they didn't the likes of the Cray 1 back in the 1975 was using 64bit architecture way before AMD bought in X86-64 which by the way doesn't even fully support the 64 bit environment but only upto 48bits the 16 bits left over has to be either all 1's or 0's
