    Another AMD turnaround

      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...

          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.
