I understand your point about their recent history, but my point is that a few recent actions doesn't mean they will always follow that logic. And if this news is true, it shows they obviously haven't followed that logic.
I'm not taking sides, I'm telling you what this news means. If that offends you, or you don't like it because someone is casting AMD in a light you don't like, that is your problem. That doesn't mean I'm taking a side.
correct which is why I have a 754 rig that has a 3000 venice in it. the venice core athlon 64 was originally a 939 only chip and then they released some 754 variants later.
