    You do know that Intel's top CPU design team is from the middle east, right? They are the ones that gave us the Core and Core2 microarchitectures.

    That is about the biggest load of crap I have ever heard spouted off in a news thread. Intel and AMD both use primarily the same instruction sets, and therefore share the same optimizations. Intel can't bribe developers to make their cpus run better, because it would make the AMDs run better too.

    As for games: Umm, how about SupCom? It's fully Quad supported, and guess which chip wins?

    You should actually do a little research on cpus and how they work before making nonsensical posts like this.

    Do you use oil? Plastic? Computers? Shoes?
    Most of thoses are manufactured the middle east. Stop being racist and get real. :p

    Go AMD Go!
    tkpenalty and Zubasa say thanks.

    What else to expect from a man whose previous system was a friggin P4 and currently uses an imaginary Bloomfield...
    If it was for Intel's US design team(s) Nehalem would be a P4 derivate which is exactly what the codename "Nehalem" originally was.

    i don't think amd is so stupid to violate the license but intel hopes are unlimited.. they have a bad dream only..

    i think intel was feeling threatened.

    seriously, i dont want to see AMD dig a hole for themselves over the cross licensing thingy,
    their too important as a competitor for pricing and for consumer choice too. I have confidence in AMDs R&D and the Athlon 64 is one proof that when they are fully funded, ect. that they release great processors. so hopefully they get through this APIC/intel facepunch ok and can afford to create another winning processor series

    this just looks to me like the company in the lead, feeling a little bit of pressure, starts whinning and crying trying to get the refs to throw out flags . . .

    doesn't this all sound somewhat similar to nVidia only a few months prior to ATI's HD4000 series?


    Either way, Intel should be kissing AMD's ass right now, if it wasn't for AMD's innovations and advancements, Intel's processors wouldn't be worth the silicone they're printed on. Thanks to AMD, we saw Intel's early CPUs drop in price. AMD also developed the x64 instruction extensions that will be the future (at some point). AMD was one of the few companies developing and pushing flash memory through the mid to late 90s, the first to develop a dual-core CPU, and ahs continued to push for new innovations in the market, new techonology, and better means of doing things. Same goes for ATI.

    As much as I've been a supported of Intel procs over the last score years, it's about time Intel takes a goodswift kick in the nuts. If AMD ever does go down, I guarantee you on that day I will dig out every single Intel CPU I have laying around, going all the way back to a 186, box them up, and ship them to Intel's front door.

    Intel like MS can't stand competition. AMD has Vigilence, Intel Relied on their P6 architecture to bring something good to the market,

    P6 CPUs= (286/386=IPC vs Clocks) Pentium Pro, Pentium 2/3, Core/Core 2.
    Clock Speed CPUs= 486/Pentium 1, Pentium 4, Pentium D.

    And ive noticed that Intel hasnt brought anything out Innovative,
    AMD with the Point to point bus, 64bit Instruction set for Consumer Market, Monolithic CPU designs. AMD releases something excellent and Intel tries to follow in their footsteps but tries to 1 Up them. Call me a fanboy if you want but ive been on both sides of the fence, ive owned all 4 companies Parts.
