Read my sig partner. I've yet to have a single problem. Then again, I've never tried oc'ing the chip (which is never a guarantee anyway, regardless whether it's an Intel or AMD) and my rig's main use is gaming, music, movies, and browsing the web.

There wont be a big change in AMD, just small change or no change at all.

http://www.thestreet.com/s/amds-ceo-...&puc=cnnmoney&

AMD announced exited handheld and digital television businesses and Dirk Meyer took over as CEO, Executive Chairman Ruiz revealed details about asset smart strategy in financial conference that the plan is to reforming AMD business going complete fabless by sell both Fab 36 and 38 plants to raise cash and outsource all GPU and CPU productions. These not going to help AMD as things getting worse for AMD, their stock crashed to $4.32 today valued the company at $2.5bn. Financial analysts downgraded AMD stocks to sell with $3.50 target but one analyst Cramer said that AMD stock will going down to $0.

Now AMD have a bigger problem, latest Mercury Research revealed data that AMD continue lose CPU marketshare to Intel in Q2 2008.

Well the CPU price cuts not helped to make Phenom sell well so Yorkfield won. Look like AMD will be folded soon after Bloomfield launch.

This is quite possibly the millionth time you've "prophisied" doom and gloom for AMD after Intel launches "X" product... yet so far they're still kicking and the GPU segment (ATi) is setup quite nicely for a while (it'll be difficult to dethrone the 4870X2 by a significant magin for some time).

Just shut it already. You're getting annoying- worse than a broken record.

no way. the situation now is comparable to AMD's situation in the late 90's. AMD will rebound, and intel will get lazy. the industry works in cycles, thats just the way it is.

I agree.. Intel was loosing out bad with the Pee4 and now it's intels turn.
AMD will rebound.
As much as I love the newest intel line I may build a AMD rig.
I've been doing a great deal of research and the performance on the
Phenom 9850 black ed is not bad and it OC's pretty well.
Though the Q6600 is a great deal right now to.
They both perform very well at the price point.
I guess I'll flip a coin when it's buy time. "lol"

Talking about time machine

Some people have short memory or are too young too remember what the situation was until July 27, 2006 when the first Intel Core 2 Duo was released.

So to refresh the memory here is the "Dual-core desktop CPU bout: AMD vs Intel." It's dated December 07 2005 (I upgraded my system right after) but nothing really changed till Core 2 Duo arrived.
The review was done by CNET.com.au and here are few quotes:

Round 2: Gaming
Quote:
Intel should be embarrassed with its showing in round 2. At every turn, AMD beat it to the punch. Even the Athlon 64 X2 3800+, the lowest end of AMD's dual-core CPUs, is better suited to 3D gaming than Intel's highest-end Extreme Edition 840 CPU
Round 7: Price. vs. performance
According to the chart the price for Athlon 64 X2 3800+ was about $340 compared Intel Pentium Extreme Edition 840 at about $1000.

The winner is...
Quote:
It wasn't even close.
After reading the round-by-round account of our dual-core desktop CPU prizefight, it should come as no shock that AMD's Athlon 64 X2 chips are the runaway victors here, laying out the Intel Pentium D and Pentium Extreme Edition 840 chips pins up. If we had to call out one chip, AMD's Athlon 64 X2 4400+ is an outstanding bargain given the competition, but as our results show, any AMD dual-core CPU will serve you better than its similarly priced Intel equivalent.
Actually there were 7 rounds in this bout and AMD did win everyone off them.

The conclusion: AMD will need less off a miracle to catch-up with Intel, than Intel needed just about 2 years ago.

Well now they have the GPU market back again with the HD4xxx series

Now they need to release a cpu in the same style. Low cost and 100% awesome
