It certainly sounds like AMD is setting them up to take over the tablet/netbook market. It will be interesting to see how the battle plays out and if Intel bites back.
Looks like all the major players are on board which is a good sign.
Cannot help but wonder if this is why Sandy Bridge is priced so cheap. I mean a $300 Core i7 2600K processor is out performing their flagship i7 980X.
Bring on the benchmarks.
Nice to see bobcat scales so well. Good that AMD is stretching their legs into the low power market, they are going to have to if they want to maintain a low power market share in a few years. Intel wants to move the mobile TDP's from 35 and 45 watts to 10 to 20 watts...so this would be a good time for AMD to step up the efficiency.
I'm excited to see what AMD will bring to the tablet market.
«Banner year» for AMD ? We'll have to see the response when Bulldozer is released - and it looks like that won't happen until, at the earliest, the beginning of September. Rick Bergman's attempt to finesse this issue at Computex (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NbIboX36Lhs) was painful to watch. A pity, because we need AMD as a counter to Intel's dominance....
