AMD is so innovative

You got to see this.

BTW, some of my old articles on DELL: Week X, hide & seek, casual look at balance sheet, real story on growth... (thanks for Chicagrafo for digging out these links).

Figuring out how to make Opteron processors dramatically more cheaply and then price them at 10% of the prices today.

That is innovative.

A Flash "virtual IT exhibit" is marketing; Nothing is made.

Do not confuse the glimmer and the gold.

AMD has backtracked on 65nm promise. The parts will be available only by the end of the year. Looks like the voltage is biting.

"AMD is so innovative"...

Your title should have said...

"AMD is beginning to understand what marketing is."

To bad I still have not seen anything from them on the Television or PC magazines.

They want 40% marketshare they better start advertising, word of mouth can only go so far.

oooOOO000OOOoooo... aaaaAAAAaaaa...

Yes indeedy... AMD seems to have mastered Shockwave, Javascript, *and* DHTML. Clearly this is a victory over Intel! Those boys in blue must be shaking. I bet it only takes 4 hits to that link to feed one AMD employee.

On a side note... I followed your link on two different computers. The first was running my trusty "old" AMD Athlon 64 X2 4800+ Toledo 2.4GHz 2 x 1MB L2 Cache Socket 939 Dual Core Processor and the second was my new Intel Core 2 Duo E6300 Conroe 1.86GHz 2M sharing L2 Cache LGA 775 Processor. Oddly enough... AMD's webpage loaded 40% faster on the Conroe. Thanks for pointing this out. One other oddity... my battery didn't explode.

Looks like they ran out of money with ATI acquisiiton, and the best they can offer is Virtual IT. Too lame compared to IDF...

Some idiot said that Conroe made his webpage download faster.

This kind of idiotic thinking is how Intel was able to sell "Netburst" which claimed to increase Internet speed.

People who don't know computer architecture nor networking should really refrain from making stupid comments on either topic.

p.s. It's not even javascript nor DHTML; it's just a flash. The innovation is in the idea.

Well it's quite possible that netburst increased Internet speed and the explanation might be that the high amount of energy from the hyper accelerated electrons from the processor, a termal magnetic vortex that resembles a verry small black hole is created that literaly sucks the internet in, realeasing high amounts of radiation. But for using such an advanced tehcnology there have proven to be seriuse dideefects as studies have shown Intel fanboys to be ireversibly and permanetly braindamaged.Such a hame!

Coution: don't use those things near the poles!

Well.. my praystation3 is contain the internet, it getta from outta space!!21!11!1! No waiting on cell.. it must be faster than cornrow! Especially for flash downloading!!11!11!!

Maybe that AMD rig needs one of those 'killer NIC' cards so it don't have to worry about onboard NIC offloading to the CPU which of course slows it down, giving 40% more speed for a cornrow.
I'll stop taking the mickey now.

Jeepers, some people eh..

Did you figure out that % all by yourself with your little numbered building blocks? Ever think that has nothing to do with your cpu and more on your internet connection or lan card chipset. Your AMD wouldn't even register 1% extra useage loading a internet screen. It takes almost no processing power to even use the internet. lol

Conroe isn't even faster then 20%, only dreaming if it was. Those are unrealistic %'s there.
