That's marke*****ch behind those asterisks. And it is a good turnaround, but AMD needs to work in IPC capabilities instead of overall clock speed. The ratio now is close to 2 to 1 Intel to AMD, and that's just not good.

Edit: Market Watch (no space). That's really stupid forum censoring if it picks out a four letter word from a proper name...

It's really stupid forum software to begin with. Fusetalk is terrible. But no one higher up wants to concern themselves with that.

The way AMD is positioned it is a single breakthrough from becoming a dominant CPU force again, the way the HD 4000 series brought nVidia back to reality and AMD from being a power hogging joke in the graphics department to a force to be reckoned with. Reed knows what he is doing, and I have to wonder what is floating around deep in the bowels of the AMD R&D labs. With more and more programs becoming GPU accelerated, if not completely GPU based, as well as higher resolutions taxing the GPU in games before a CPU maxes out, the age of having a monolithic CPU is starting to come to an end. AMD knows this, and is where the heterogeneous architecture and powerful graphics cards will start to shine.

If anything, I expect Intel to be waiting in the weeds for AMD to come out with a card which slaughters nVidia so they can buy them on the cheap.
