The average Joe does not know who they are, or what they make.
Agreed. This is why everybody heard of Intel. Remember "INTEL INSIDE". This strategy helped convince consumers that oh, this must be good its an Intel. Though we are talking about people that think your PC case is called a harddrive, and don't know jack about components.

Being a house hold name is getting your product on the Idiot box that MILLIONS watch EVERY DAY!
Agreed. It's nice for individuals to OC and brag about it, but AMD's marketing department need to put more trust in there hardware and stop this nonsense OC'ing marketing strategy that ultimately voids warranty anyway.
1st generation Bulldozer may have not been what we all expected. But it still runs and does anything I throw at it. As generations mature, this will get better, until then stay away from Bloody OC'ing and concentrate on the CPU's strengths.
