quote: I wish to remind people that, next week, when the Opteron 8300 series comes out, AMD will be first to market with a quad-core processor for the 4-socket market. Intel will only release their Tigerton (quad-core Xeon MP ) a couple of weeks after AMD.
quote: It took Intel 3.5 years to counter-attack K8 (March 2003 to June 2006), versus 1.25 years for AMD to counter-attack Core2 (June 2006 to Sep 2007).
quote: Intel have 10x more employees than AMD but only ship 3x more CPUs
quote: AMD is going to ship 8-core CPUs before Intel (gluing 2 quad-core dies is easier/better than gluing 4 dual-core dies)
quote: Tigerton is scheduled for launch on September 6, where it should have no problems obliterating the existing x86 enterprise benchmarks.
quote: Intel had different products in-between [...]
quote: It's less than 6X now, plus Intel has 6X the revenue and has net profits greater in one quarter than AMD in the whole of its existence.
quote: Barcelona is big to fit two dies on a Socket F package, while Shanghai with its upgraded L3 will probably be too big as well.
quote: As I explained elsewhere in this thread, the Opteron 8300 series will be more performant and cheaper than Tigerton.
quote: Doesn't matter. The fact is that Intel is less innovative than AMD. This Intel executive disagree with you
quote: Again, you are someone who seems to live in the past and is unable to think about the future. As they say, previous performance is not a guarantee for a future success. The "old" K8 has been directly responsible for Intel's net income drop of more than 40% in 2006.
quote: The scale of the damages caused by K10 will be higher. No matter how much money Intel is making today, tomorrow it will be much, much worse.
quote: With all due respect, you don't know what you are talking about. This is precisely what AMD is going to do with Shanghai:
quote: And now they say they will wait to Bulldozer and Sandtiger.
