One again you commit fraud. You compare yet to be released products from AMD - when AMD has shown no ability to deliver on its claims - to prior generation Intel products, while you completely ignore upcoming Intel products. And consistent with the fool that you are, you provide a link that illustrates your lie.
There are a few flies on the ointment, however. Puma-based notebooks will only be available in Q2/Q3, and we fully expect to see Intel hit back with its Centrino 2 platform - formerly known as Montevina - that will ship with energy-efficient 45nm Penryn CPUs on a G45-class mobile chipset that also promises potent DX10 graphics and full-screen, hardware-accelerated HD decoding for Blu-ray content.
another product that no one really need. have you seen the numbers of desktop quad intc sold in 2007 (not worth the time looking for them).
but there is actually a case for using such a system. a friend of mine is eagerly waiting for such a beast. he is in server consolidation business and needs to run 4 virtual servers on his notebook for demonstration, evaluation and proof of concept.
anyway delivering a specific chip for a dozen of other guys that need the same kind of equipment is nice from intc.
however don't expect them to make any money (on whatever it costs) with it. it's only for marketing. yet another niche (like skull-trail) that amd should leave to intc for pouring money into it without any benefits.
well i forgot the marketing part but hey it still sucks.
In Server Market we need to take into account two things - the performance per unit of power and the price unit of the performance.
So the latest is not the greatest of it boils down to price.
Hi, the point is that AMD will be hard pressed to launch anything in the same class.
I asked you whether you lived in Germany. You say you live in Europe.
If you live in Germany I am traveling to Frankfurt in a couple weeks.
I was looking for 8 socket HP using google and I found these links
Is this what you were talking about?
Wow, 100 design wins...so I guess AMD will now be pissing off a record number of OEMs then, when they slip and/or deliver a dead Puma.
I think AMD has proven long ago they have no credibility with their demos...you DO remember Barcelona, right?
AMD demoed it at Cebit 2008, and you can watch a video at the hexus link above.
AMD has recorded a record 100+ design wins for Puma. The big OEM's have really piled on this one. Based on the demo of it's features, it's not hard to see why.
"Sorry, you'll have to wait until Q2 for a Puma notebook."
LOL...first off, if you see a single Puma-powered unit on the last day of Q2, I'll bow down to the mighty p_l_u_s.
Second, then why are you popping off about what Puma CAN do? Have you been reading AMD powerpoints again?
So again...what I hear you saying is...you have no supporting indepedent reference to what Puma is "gonna do", or "can do", OTHER than what AMD says it WILL be able to do...correct?
