This is the second conference, a lot of big names. SUN sent four guys over, including Scott McNealy. Note that DELL CTO is in the speakers list.

Maybe because 'Sharikou' is just a nickname, he could be anyone you know ;-). He could be even working for Intel using reverse psychology on the masses ... nonetheless he seems to hate Intel, and I hate them too but for different reasons I suppose. I hate them because I'm a technology geek and as a technology geek I was betrayed by Intel, they dropped innovation and technology in the pursuit of marketing and fake imagery. That can't be easily forgoten by someone like me. Besides its competitor AMD more than deserves it's current position, it was earned the hard and fair way, by innovation and product value, so from my part they have gained a long living supporter! :)

For probably the same reasons you're not on the Intel Developer Convention's guest list.

Who really cares though??? Most of that stuff is usually for industry pundits anyway, i.e. people who work for said companies attending the conference, only the press and a very small handful of select outsiders get in those things I imagine.

The AMD Global Vision Conference is a big deal though, Dell's CTO being there as a speaker is quite paramount IMHO. This only makes me(and others I'm sure) realize this deal with Dell selling AMD is that they are definately in for the long haul.

"ahead of AMD's planned launch of server-use quad-core Deerhound in 2007 and desktop quad-core Greyhound in 2008, said the sources."

They can show the desktop quad cores that won't be here for more than a year:)

Please understand that my comment was a joke, and if Shaikou really was offended by it I am sure he would have commented.

I am only offended by Intelers' foul languages that often include references to human organs and that kind of stuff.

I wish Intelers can be more civilized.

I really wish I can be at AMD Global Vision one day -- telling people how I accurately projected Intel's BK and why I was right on the money.

AMD knows 4-core desktops won't go mainstream in a couple of years.
Like Intel was pushing DDR2 when price/performance didnt match DDR's, while AMD times it right.

Look at who else was on the speakers list as well:

Mike Fister is president and CEO of Cadence Design Systems, Inc. Prior to joining Cadence, he spent 17 years at Intel Corporation, where he was most recently senior vice president and general manager of the company's enterprise platforms group. During his tenure as general manager, Intel garnered commanding market segment share, including the introduction of the Itanium processor family which leads in virtually every performance category. Other products included a complement of Xeon processors, chipsets, boards/systems, and software tools and services. Previously, Mr. Fister served as vice president and general manager of the performance microprocessor group, where he managed Intel's IA-32 processor development organization and was responsible for the design, development and marketing of IA-32 processors, including the last versions of the Intel486 and the entire line including the Pentium Pro, Pentium II, Pentium III, Celeron, Pentium II Xeon, and Pentium III Xeon processors. Mr. Fister is a graduate of the University of Cincinnati where he received a B.S. and M.S. in electrical engineering.

Seems like he had quite a change of strategy, there, now, doesn't it? ;)

They need to give ATI money, given the massive revenue shortfall ATI's been forecasting...

"is due to lower sales volumes of integrated chipsets for Intel-based platforms"
That just means for sales of Intel's chipsets:)
