AMD Will Be Back On Top Soon

Quote:
These pictures were taken only a few minutes ago. AMD showed off their Barcelona quad-core processors in action today in Monterey, California. What you see in the pictures below are single processor and dual processor configurations, so a true "4x4" is now realized by AMD that looks very comfortable on an enthusiast desktop. And yes, those are Radeon X2900 XT video cards in the systems. Ian McNaughton showed off both systems encoding a 1080P trailer of Spiderman 3 to an H.264 format. On the dual quad-core Barcelona machine the encoding nearly ran real time. Extremely impressive. You will be seeing Barcelona in servers long before it finally gets to our desktops though.

AMD - Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. - Google Finance

I don't think it's much of a stretch that you could see $25/share in the next year. If you've got some extra money laying around, this might be a pretty decent investment.

Re: AMD Will Be Back On Top Soon

14 dollars a share is a steal for AMD. Wish I had cash laying around.

Re: AMD Will Be Back On Top Soon

hrm, i want to make sure when i switch to AM2 its a mobo that will last me a few years (SLi with expandability to 8gb ddr2 ram). i think i saw today on Newegg a 6000+ X2 2.8ghz dual core for 230$, and dfi am2 boards were like 130$. i need to upgrade soon, so thats why im asking.

Re: AMD Will Be Back On Top Soon

Could anyone tell me the differences between the AMD Quad core and the Intel Quad Core?

I kinda need to know this for work That and I talk to the AMD and Intel reps and I want to know who's bull****ting when it comes to the quad core discussion.

intel's original 4 cores were actually 2 dual core processors crammed onto one chip. basically, mirrored memory and architecture. true quad processors, like AMD's barcelona and intel's new kentsfield C2Q are a bit different architecture-wise

basically:

AMD = first true dual core
Intel = more efficient dual core
Intel = dual mirrored "quad core" processor
Intel = kentsfield "true quad"
AMD = barcelona "true quad"

lol yeah.

Just don't feel bad when they laugh and point out that they control approximately 80% of the CPU market share.

Re: AMD Will Be Back On Top Soon

So all what Intel does is.. wait until AMD comes out with something awesome, and they take that thing and make it more efficient?

Re: AMD Will Be Back On Top Soon

nah, great minds think alike. there are a lot of different paths they could take to arrive at the same conclusion. hell, there may even be some information trading going on at some level

and intel is on top right now, yes. but amd is poised to get back some of it's own

IF they do everything they need to do JUST RIGHT

Re: AMD Will Be Back On Top Soon

the top spot in terms of performance has been trading between the two for years now. AMD will take a Intel idea and run with it and make it better, then duing the same run they will make something new thats better than anything intel has. then Intel will make that idea better, then top it off while AMD is still in the process of researching new stuff. they pass the ball quite often, one will be one step ahead, then when they think they have the market, the other takes two steps and gets ahead, then they repeat. up until now, intel has been the one step ahead guy, but amd will take a giant leap soon and be right back on top and intel will be going like "wtf whered they come from?"

btw intel is losing support everyday, more and more AMD processors find their way into PC's than intel. plus the fact AMD owns ATX (board manufacturer) isnt helping intel too much.

If you'd bought it when I told all y'all to, you'd have made about $1.50 a share (about 10%) in a week.
