This is a very interesting guy for AMD to hire...
Seeing performance coming from intel since the Core2 technology, even the janitors are prospects.

Do you know who John Gustafson is?

I think it will be very interesting to see what he does for AMD considering what he has done up until now.

Get real guys and stop lying to yourselves. You know it that AMD is done and finished.
They just come at AMD to get the huge paychecks, that's all.
Easy money for them and they don't have to be under pressure cause the stupid management don't have very high expectations anyway. I would of done it as well if i was in their shoes.

Wonder how you feel about Nvidia ?

Two quarter in a row it has lost sales and market share to AMD. Going by the numbers quater to quater AMD only lost thousand units where Nvidia lost in the million units sold.

Guess everyone is just collecting paychecks :rolleyes:

And here I was thinking I was talking to another adult with at least a little understanding of what he was talking about.

I guess I was wrong :twitch:

I wont sing the Funeral March for AMD just yet. Relax. Each company has its up and downs. AMD is still getting strong on GPU business, and form all rumors out there, it seems that the next generation AMD cards will trash nvidia by a fair margin. Again just rumors. But without rumors, where all the fun would be? ;)

I think the fuckup and this unacceptable release of Bulldozer was an inside job.
Some were getting paid to make sure Bulldozer would fail. Its the only way that this could be explained. :laugh: To release a chip which is slower than your previous line of processors raises some very big questions.
And now we have an ex intel guy on the team? :laugh:
I heard of something a few days ago but i don't remember names and stuff. That some guy who worked at intel he took some secret arc papers and designs with him before he left from intel to give them to AMD.
What a load of crap. Now these idiots invite an intel guy to give all the info about AMD graphics back to Intel.
This management at AMD is so clever it is unbelievable. :roll:

I was more confused because of the fact that Intel really hasn't proven to be a company that knows jack shit about graphics. But hell, let's throw a conspiracy on there too. I don't see why not.

They left the guy who lead AMD graphics slip away from them because he did not agree with them on how graphics should be done and that is why he left. He did not want to mess up with his reputation. You will see AMD graphics going to hell as well in time.
