quote: It's also futile for AMD to devote resources to catch up with Intel in single threaded performance. Intel is way too far ahead and AMD has 1/5th of Intel's R&D resources to spend on CPU-GPU-APU-Chipsets. And single tread is a thing of the past. When you design an architecture that will be your base for the 5-8 years to come, you design it for multitasking.
quote: The only mistake AMD made is to release Bulldozer to the desktop enthousiast crowd.
