quote: Why can't they just release the CPU as "AMD Good", "AMD Better", and "AMD Best."I'm so tired of hundreds of CPU flavors, each with different pin and chipset requirements. Each with different power spec's and levels of performance. Ugh. It's impossible to keep up with all these different cores! Cities, lakes, rivers... What ever - I just want to check my email or play a game!
quote: You've obviously have done your homework and enjoy keeping up with the market.
quote: But you're also in that stereotype where I would put people who know what chip the codename "Brisbane" means and what the characteristics of that chip are. But not all of us have that sort of time, nor that passion.
quote: I see CPU's under the major category's of "Mobile", "Workstation", and "Server". At best, there should be two chips under each of those major category's with various clock speeds.
quote: But now I need to research 10+ CPU lines just to determine if a notebook will let my boss run the applications that he needs for the expected life of that notebook. Then I need to research video card options, RAM, solid state drives, wifi chips, bio scanners, cameras, serial ports... You might see where my enthusiasm peaks and starts to become frustration.
quote: And this is just in the Intel family. Then I'd have to turn and look at AMD's offerings and figure out what in AMD's line-up competes directly against the Intel counterpart and compare the two... It's too many. Really.
quote: And, no, I don't want a Dell! hahaha! Really, Dell's are fine computers for the office. But they suck for upgrading and make you pay twice as much for the options.
quote: Is AMD trying to break the record for the number of times a company can launch the same products over and over with slightly different names or something?

How many times can they release the same car? Blazer, Jimmy, Bravada. Pontiac Grand Am, Olds Alero & Intrigue, etc.See any relevance to processors? I dont.
