Congrats to Lisa Su.

Unfortunately AMD completely dropped the ball on a discrete desktop CPU to follow Vishera so now they will lose billions in sales over the next two years along with millions of loyal AMD customers who literally have no choice but to jump ship as AMD has nothing for them to purchase. This wasn't Lisa Su's decision. She just does what she is told to do.

Technically didn't drop it completely, just getting behind the more profitable APUs. Unfortunately...performance wise, the APUs suck in comparison. Unless we see 8+ cores, L3 cache, and other things which set the discrete apart from APUs, taking place on APUs, then yeah...to Intel goes the business.

But then again, at the rate technology is stagnating, I've got a few more years on my 8320.

amd has no plans for the next 2 years on the main discrete line. does not mean that they are dropping the ball completely. it can be that they are just waiting for GloFo to get their shit together and start making some decent progress on the newer production processes with higher yeild rate. the more the failure rate glofo has the more amd is losing. Its useless to spend resources on an architecture based on old fabrication processes when intel is 14nm already.

this is a sound strategy as they can now completely focus on the mobile apu and apus in general. mobile apus in laptops is kicking intels ass in low to mid range pcs, increase their profits... which they can invest back into the am socket series 2 years later if all goes well.

18nm.....does not exist. it's 22nm to 14nm for intel.... 28 to 20 to 16nm for AMD and everyone else. ASnd do not pretend to have a clue what they are going to do.

When I see AMD this quiet on desktop, I'm expecting a surprise.
Also, an 8 core apu isn't impossible. Even 12 and 16 core apus could be attractive. Adding L3 caché should be easy. Take out the GPU portion and what you get is an FX.

always core's, core's and core's blablabla... this is what makes ppl blind by thinking more core = more performance.
I owned a FX8120 some months ago and i sucks. After many years on the red side i couldn't stand it any more to wait till AMD fixes these issues so i hopped again on the blue train. Face the reality ppl, AMD CPU's massively sucks at single thread performance and latency. As long they don't fix this, I don't see any comeback in the HighEnd market for them.

I own an 8320 and what I need is more cores actually. And yes, AMD sucks in single threaded performance, but its not the disaster you described. I need more cores, and no, I'm not blind as you say. More cores is more performance in everything non gaming related. I work in video editing and software development. Gaming is just one part for what a PC is made for. On the other side... take a look at the PS4 and Xbox one. What they've got inside? An APU similar to an A10 with MORE CORES!

In the near future and now its clear that more cores is the future and with software catching up with using more cores its just how its going to be.
If you owned a 8120 then thats your fault for not looking into the reviews first, the Bulldozer core was indeed meh, my mate has one and its OK but indeed it feels very slow. I waited with my Phenom II for another 12months then AMD brought out the Piledriver core and I jumped to the 8350 and its bloody good, kicked the crap out of my i7 940 with ease in multi core performance. Single thread/core performance is indeed less then Intel but they do not "suck" there still respectable and soon to be not as needed in the future with Software going the multi core way, that's just how it is.

Exactly.
Of course, an increase in single threaded performance is always welcome.

I'm hoping that Jim Keller revives AMD's performance reputation, moves them away from modules, or at least the currently slow modules. If the modules were faster, thats always a plus!

I believe they can improve the modules, or revive the old Thuban core and make it better. Either way, they should not stop. If they stop, they ain't gonna achieve anything
