quote: In any event, I recall hearing similar FUD when Intel dropped their Conroe benchmarks early last year. Everyone thought they were lying or they had intentionally crippled the AMD machine. Conroe launched and, lo and behold, Intel was telling the truth. Funny how you seem to be insinuating something rather similar.
quote: AMD to expect 45nm in H2 2008, they need to have SRAM samples *now* and tape-outs within the next 6-8 months
quote: By the way, has AMD yet demonstrated their quad-core on the 65nm process (Barcelona?) with multiple OSs up and running? That would be far more significant news than the rustle and flutter of paper-projections in this news article. Intel has now demonstrated Penryn up and running a year before formal production. Surely AMD has their K8L dual and quad-cores now fully up and running and ready to demonstrate to the world six months before their expected volume-shipping date ?
quote: There is no mention by AMD or IBM of a working DRAM or SRAM block on their 45nm process
quote: Intel had a large block of test-RAM fully working on their 45nm process Spring last year
quote: By the way, has AMD yet demonstrated their quad-core on the 65nm process (Barcelona?) with multiple OSs up and running?
quote: All other features found on Barcelona will also make an appearance on Shanghai: AMD-Virtualization (previously codenamed Presido), RDDR2 , and HyperTransport 3.0.
quote: AMD President Henri Richard in March 2007 .
quote: The fact that IBM/AMD announced high-K success two years ago is forgotten but Intel's fanfare of 45 nano high-K last week is "big news".
quote: they have shown them running and yes, they're perfectly capable of running "multiple OS's" and hardware.
quote: It would seem to me that AMD needs to seize every opportunity to show that the 65nm K8L designs are fully functional and headed for production to head off the gallop by the purchasing public to the Conroe derivatives
quote: Why do you think that AMD's need is greater than Intel's was when AMD is still taking marketshare away from Intel?
