Nothing important, just as a feedback remark
We're still in transitional times; a lot of people still don't know what UEFI is. Sorry it irritates you but there was some thought behind why I worded it that way.

Come on AMD. You can win this one.

Don't **** it up like you did with dual-core. You took Intel's money.

Give us something that's not second rate.

If the future of processors is really hybrid CPU/GPU chips, then it seems AMD has a large advantage over Intel. That is, unless Intel adopts some proprietary architecture used to communicated between the two. Intel has an uncanny ability to get the market to adapt to their changes.
