Their stock has been taking a real beating.

Well, hopefully they will recover from that. They've been beaten pretty hard before and still pulled through. Here's hoping that they will manage to pull through yet again.

I hope they pull through also. Here's hoping they can get something going soon.

That's what intel did before they released the Core 2's to the market. Perhaps this is a sign of things to come from AMD. ;) :D

well how long is AMD going to wait till they release something?
because i don't think the new fx series really did anything for them...

IMO, I think there holding off the GPU & CPU till the 2nd quarter, so they can come on strong and make up for the 1st quarter losses. the big bang effect, just a thought.

That's why I want to at least get a decent Core 2 Duo before Intel hype up their prices to an unaffordable level. :thumbdwn:

I do not understand where this idea has come from. Can you please elaborate?

Prices on CPU's come down...not go up?

I've never seen 1000 lot prices increase after initial inception of a product, especially not 6-months to a year later.

Whats odd is I believe CPU's are not AMD's main market. They do alot of microcontrollers and other IC applications for industrial machines. At least I see the AMD logo on a ton of microcontollers when I am working on some things at work :p I hope AMD comes through with a knock out on Intel. Not that I want to switch motherboards and CPU's again (which I will do for whoever is king)... but because I want AMD to keep Intel on thier toes and keep the prices low and hopefully keep nVida from raping us on prices.
