Similar thing happened to intel after the Netburst arcitecture debockle. I think it may take a year or two for AMD to get back on its feet but when it does it will be a stronger company. All we can do is hope that bulldozer will live up to the hype and that soon AMD will have a brand new arcitecture to WOW us with. Funny twist in this story is that Microsoft backs AMD more now since Intel started putting it's CPUs in the MACs.
Microsoft, huh? Xbox 720 with AMD powered CPU, anybody?
twricerocket118:Speaking of Xboxes, why not choice of both Intel and AMD powered Xboxes?
Because console games and optimized for certain hardware. No AMD and Intel CPUs match up exactly in terms of performance. But if you mean that MS design a certain chip and both Intel and AMD make it and adhere to its specificiations, than I guess they could do it. But I don't see that happening.
