I am really glad they seem to be getting themselves back in line. One thing that has really been amazing me is the combination of CPU/GPU, and AMD's at least until now no comment on the issue. It just seem to me with the combination of AMD and ATI in one persona they could really have an edge here. Yes Nvidia has there solution, and Intel is coming into it to in September with the I5. But neither one of those companies have the full level of experience on both sides that AMD does.
I would love to see an Istanbul 6 or 8 core with a 4870/4890 GPU onboard with say 8 gig DDR3 and an add on of either matching cards or their X2 brethren. I bet that would be a smoking system. Especially if Got ahold of it liquid cooled it and worked some black magic on it ROFL.
AMD all the way, baby!
SPAM-posters beware! ®
From a consumer perspective, both AMD's shipping of Istanbul as scheduled - if it really happens - and the EC fine on Intel's anticompetitive practices are good news ; this is a market which has been lacking effective competition. Let us hope that it will open up now !...
Plain and simple AMD needs to continue to innovate. Intel, at this point, is out manufacturing them (not surprising with their resources) and out-innovating them, which really doesn't need to be the case. They need a CPU core with a bit more horsepower/IPC and an ultra-low power story (like Atom) too.
