AMD advances in China market with alarming speed

According to a report published by Chinese online media NetEase (NASDAQ: NTES), there is a hot debate on true and fake dual core throughout China. In an online survey titled "Dual Core Debate" by SINA.com, 65.52% of the surveyed favour AMD as the winner, only 25.05% choose Intel. 73.98% of the surveyed support AMD's dual core challenge for Intel. AMD has conducted a 3 month dual core marketing campaign covering major Chinese cities.

Regarding the recent Conroe benchmark at the IDF, PR manager of AMD China, Ms. Yanli Liu discounted it as a future Intel chip against AMD's current offering, she questioned the integrity of the test as it was an Intel setup done in a very closed environment.

The report claims that Lenovo, Tongfang, Asus, Shenzhou, Benq and MSI are AMD's top five allies in China, while Acer, TCL and Haier are in Intel's camp.

A researcher of the Chinese Science Academy recently lashed out against the shared FSB design of Intel's NGMA/CORE, calling it a major bottleneck. AMD collaborated with Dawning in implementing China's fastest supercomputer with the Opteron processor. AMD also contributed the Geode processor design to China's Beijing University and Ministry of Science and Technology in a joint development project.



Intel's recent atttempt to block China's WAPI wireless standard in favour of its own 802.11i standard has deeply angered the Chinese. There were Chinese reports that Intel invited the voting members of the standard committee to luxurious trips. So far, only Japan, European Union and South Korea governments have raided INTEL offices.

Uh, gee, do you own any AMD shares?
Pretty lame ruse here...

Oh, yes, I start buying since AMD at $10. How are about you? what price did you start buying INTC ? Feel good in the past 12 months?

The Chinese translated "Athlon" as "Speedy Dragon." Interesting tidbit.

"Apparently, the Chinese are not dummies."

Chinese universities produce 600,000 engineers per year, while the US graduate 75,000 engineers per year. Nearly, 10X more engineers.

humm... interestingly, the chinese are comparing athlon 64 x2 to intel pentium D. they are like... almost at the end of their product life (well for pentium D at least)

Pentium D will remain Intel's top dog until the 3rd quarter if Conroe is on schedule. AMD will transition to Rev F in June.

It would be kind of stupid to compare current cpu's with ones that have not been released yet. Remember Duke Nukem Forever? It looked real great in the previews. But look how it performed actually, or, more accurately, didn't perform. Kind of like Netburst. Could this be another bad processor line? As was just mentioned, they also used AMD's current cpus, not the ones that will replace them in just a few months. We all know that Intel is great at hyping bad products that haven't yet been released. Remember how they were saying that Netburst would get so much more done per clock cycle than Pentium 3? Then it came out, much slower than the p3. So, they finally, after years of "research" said, our processors are terrible. Lets go back to our old design from the 90's. They must have forgotten how badly the Athlons were beating them performance wise during the p3 era.

Intel also said that the Itanium would revolutionize computing. Instead, it came out very late, was very slow, and became known as one of Intel's greatest, most expensive flops. I wouldn't trust Intel's propoganda about future CPU's.

Chinese universities indeed produce more gradutes than those of US, but they are not engineers, because they know nothing actually. Chinese universities do not teach students knowledge, but teach them communists, tyranny and corruption, which are the Chinese culture.

The Chinese translation of Athlon is "Poisonous Dragon", which means the whole country has been poisoned by the evil and malious communism, tyranny and corruption.
