Same here. If it wasn't for the fact most games are running great on my PC (even with the little 3800+ and Vista) and it's so damn stable (my 360 crashes more than my PC), I'd prob have upgrade to C2D as soon as it came out. Right now I'm just waiting. Probably when Crysis comes along I'll think about upgrading to whatever comes out in the usual mid year hardware releases. I'd ofcourse wait for the big guys like jAk and Tiki to test and benchmark it all for me

People can keep buying Intel, but we'll certainly ignore your cries once Intel is the only CPU monopoly and CPU prices once again skyrocket due to no real competition due to AMD being only a memory.

All you once loyal AMD fans can keep buying Intel, you're just doing your small part to start a very bleak future.


AMD today reported a net loss of $611M, primarily due to an operating loss of more than $320M in the Computing Solutions group while former-ATI operations also incurred losses of about $40M. Non-GAAP gross margins were down to 31%, and exceptional charges of $113M further darkened the picture.

I'm not going to buy AMD just to fight the power. I want the superior product. We all bought AMD because Intel got too lax with their product. Now AMD has an inferior product and they need to know that. It's up to them to be king again.
