    Verdict: AMD GUILTY AGAIN

    AMD's long track record of making fraudulent performance claims are numerous, its a cultural epidemic of deceit damaging investors, AMD must be held accountable for repeated actions of product performance fraud.

  • judge_chip judge_chip Jun 3, 2016 10:16 AM Flag

    We have witnessed this repeated cultural behavior from AMD management so often now that AMD must be held accountable for the damages incurred by investors from statements made by AMD that are blatantly fraudulent.

  • judge_chip judge_chip Jun 3, 2016 10:08 AM Flag

    Because AMD can not compete so you order your market program to plague the tech sites with hype pumping propaganda as AMD has dome many many times before.

    Verdict:

    AMD GUILTY AGAIN of making blatant over hyped performance promises and once again not keeping them.

    Law suits from bamboozled investors incurring financial losses due to fraudulent claims made by AMD will be coming again, AMD just doesn't learn from its past mistakes.

    The settlement includes the cross-licensing of a limited amount of patents, its a win win for both.

    NVDA secured all the HBM2 it wants from Sammy, while AMD can't afford any HBM2.

    May I add Seamicro and Mantle to your list of debt laden AMD's cash burning fiascos.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

    Its called full disclosure putting your money where your mouth is, not like the paid per post to pump AMD puppets that plague this investment board.

    Verdict:
    hx2324 Guilty of not knowing the x86 64Bit Facts and spreading FUD

    Intel has no need of AMD64, Intel owns their reversed engineered version of 64bit (Intel64) its Intel's new x86 extensions that is not shared with AMD going forward.

    You are a BSing LIAR!

    X86 OWNED by Intel

    Integrated graphics a Intel First

    Sandy Bridge with high speed Ring Bus a Intel first

    Hyper-threading (officially called Hyper-Threading Technology or HT Technology, and abbreviated as HTT or HT) is Intel's proprietary simultaneous multithreading (SMT) implementation used to improve parallelization of computations (doing multiple tasks at once) performed on x86 microprocessors. It first appeared in February 2002 on Xeon server processors and in November 2002 on Pentium 4 desktop CPUs. A Intel tech that AMD is desperately trying to copy.

    The AMD copying list is so long that it would take pages and pages to list.

    VERDICT: AMD LIED ABOUT CORE COUNTS

    The company is now facing a lawsuit over allegations of deceptive marketing of one of their CPUs.

    Tony Dickey, along with several other AMD users who feel the same way, filed a class-action lawsuit against the company on October 26th in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, San Jose Division. According to the lawsuit, AMD perpetrated violations of the Consumer Legal Remedies Act, California’s Unfair Competition Law, false advertising, fraud, breach of express warrant, negligent misrepresentation and unjust enrichment.

    The lawsuit is against their new Bulldozer CPU which the company advertised as having 8-cores, capable of performing eight calculations simultaneously. Dickey alleges that AMD overstated the number of cores in the chip when in fact Bulldozer only contains four cores.

    The suit alleges AMD built the Bulldozer processors by stripping away components from two cores and combining what was left to make a single “module.” In doing so, however, the cores no longer work independently.

    According to Dickey, the average PC user lacks the technical expertise to understand the design of the chip and believes that AMD would do right by them which supposedly the company didn’t do. Tens of thousands of consumers have been misled into buying Bulldozer CPUs when in fact the chip isn’t even capable of performing like a true 8-core CPU.

    Through the lawsuit, Dickey and the others are looking for compensation for damages including statutory and punitive, litigation expenses and judgement interests.

    VERDICT: windscar232 GUILTY of being as dumb as a AMD fanatic comes, this nutcase is totally clueless beyond any reasonable doubt, a typical AMD fact-less fantard, a complete void between the ears. His/her/its brain cell killing posts are utter nonsense.

    VERDICT: AMD LIED ABOUT CORE COUNTS

    A group of consumers have sued AMD for allegedly misrepresenting the core-count on its Bulldozer CPU. The 32nm CPU features a proprietary technology that is claimed to enable “eight-core processing” from a single chip.
    AMD faces lawsuit over allegedly misrepresenting ‘8-core’ on Bulldozer CPU

    The class-action lawsuit, filed on 26 October in the US District Court for the Northern District of California, claims that the Bulldozer CPU does not have eight cores as advertised, and uses four cores for processing on a system. Further, it alleges that the CPU model is suffering from “material performance degradation” and cannot simultaneously use eight cores at the same time.

    AMD brought the “Clustered Integer Core” micro-architecture to Bulldozer CPU that works as a dual-core CPU, despite having a single-core structure. Unlike hyper-threading technology on Intel CPUs, AMD’s Bulldozer has “module” design that makes multiple cores to share a single floating point unit for processing various tasks.

    The proprietary technology allegedly tricked consumers by overstating the number of cores violating the Consumer Legal Remedies Act and comes under the act of false advertising, fraud, breach of express warrant, negligent misrepresentation and unjust enrichment. The group seeks damages from AMD that include statutory and punitive damages, litigation expenses, pre- and post-judgement interest, as well as other injunctive in addition to declaratory relief as is deemed reasonable.

    Sunnyvale, California-based AMD launched the Bulldozer range of CPUs in October 2011 as the successor to its K10. The range includes FX9590, FX8350, FX6300 and FX4300.

  • Lawsuit claims AMD lied about the number of cores in its chips

    Processor makers regularly exaggerate the performance of their chips (remember Intel’s obsession with clock speed?), but AMD is learning that there are limits around what you can claim. It’s facing a class action lawsuit accusing the company of misleading buyers about the number of cores in its Bulldozer-based CPUs. It would advertise that a given processor had eight cores, for example, when it effectively had four — each core in AMD-speak was really half of a module, and couldn’t operate independently. As such, that Bulldozer part couldn’t handle as many simultaneous instructions as you’d expect in a true eight-core design. That was bound to be a disappointment if you were a performance junkie expecting eight-way computing in your gaming PC or server.

    AMD hasn’t commented on the lawsuit, although it’s notable that the company is backing away from the modular chip designs at the heart of this legal battle. Its next architecture, Zen, represents a more conventional approach that focuses on simultaneous code threads within each core, like Intel’s Hyperthreading. It could lead to larger processors, but it should be faster and (more importantly) eliminate any debate about what a core represents. The big concern is that AMD may pay a heavy price for its marketing mistake. Even in the lawsuit’s home state of California, hordes of people bought Bulldozer-based computers — if the plaintiffs win the day, that could lead to a hefty settlement payout.
