Here's an interesting quote.

"We estimate the number of non-cache transistors in a dual-core Athlon 64 X2 to be approximately 94M, and the Barcelona core is around 247M"

I want to see real performance numbers before even thinking about getting it. Core 2 is out and has proven itself... time for AMD to step up or shut up.

Maybe it's time to buy some of that discount AMD stock.

Same thought crossed my mind today, but it is still a gamble. Anyway, the money is in Mobile and Servers. Intel is smoking AMD in the mobile sector.

Yeah, mabye, but AMD completly dominates the server market, the opterons are still better than the c2d based Xeons. The mobile market will pick up with the new chips too.

If AMD can leverage their chipset division (ATI), then they definitely have a chance of gaining more market share in the mobile market.

Are there any competing strategies to Centrino?

Just the turion series right now, which was pretty competative with the last gen mobile chips. Hopefully the 65nm+other changes will help that sector out.

Sounds awesome. Maybe I should hold off on that quad-core Core2 rig. Then again, if I'm understanding that article correctly neither AMD nor Intel intend to have a specific architecture for very long. Meaning sockets could be changing more rapidly as well.

When asked if AMD has plans to launch an Intel Centrino-like mobile platform, Polster denied such plans. “There is no such plan. In fact, a Centrino-like platform is not a very good strategy for AMD. If we limit our business partners to develop along the lines of a platform we set, then all PC products will eventually develop into similar solutions, which in the end would lead to a price war and minimize profits for all our partners,” said Polster. “We believe in a open platform so our business partners can build and develop products that build on their strengths.”
