Intel Core notebooks sued for overheating

Nothing to do with batteries. Notebooks overheat.

AMD is hiring. Intel is firing.

I found this interesting. Jensen Huang wanted to be the emperor. Jensen is well qualified, he is one sharp guy. But he probably lacked the experience of running a company with FABs.

AMD and Nvidia can still merge.

I very much doubt nvidia and AMD will ever merge now.

nvidia are a very combative company, evidence of this was seen after their FX range got trounced by the ATi R300 back in the good old days. It took them a while but they now are equal if not a bit ahead again.

I think nvidia feel that Ati could not stand the pace and had to be scooped up and now no doubt they would like to be successful against the combined AMDATI entity.

Personally I hope neither Intel nor AMD take them over as they are slightly maverick and interesting to watch. Ati is already starting to "disappear" .

It will be interesting to see how much revenue and earnings Ati gives to AMD next week, I believe AMD's 3% increase in revenue does not cover ATi, or does it?

If R600 and the R6XX range prove to be very popular then this might offset AMD's own performance until K8L arrives, and if that is the case then the ATi buy will probably have been a smart thing to do in the short range when they probably envisioned it being smart in the long range.

Intel cpus being hot is a fact and not a lie.

To the first poster:

What the hell are you talking about LIES? All of his text was a summarized sentence with a link. I see no lies there?

Apart from the AMD and NVIDIA merger comment, which is a suggestion (or foresight)... and as far as I know, suggesting something is not lieing!

BUT, if you want good lies, turn into Intel's report tomorrow after the bell... now there are some GREAT LIES!

Too bad you don't know that every single one of these laptops were with old Netburst CPU.

What good are you when you can't even put a decent headline to your posts? Kind of makes me want to collect all the other mistakes you have made but I think that would mean copying at least half of everything you have said before.

"AMD is hiring. Intel is firing."
You yourself told Intel to make cut costs. They are.

What? Because you poor little Intel fanboys don't like to hear what Sharikou has to say and you all get bent out of shape about it? I laugh in your general direction. The facts are this: When he has something to say, you people bitch, moan and piss about it and say he's full of it. He obviously can't be too far off the mark if it pisses off you Intel fanboys that much, as the old saying goes, the truth hurts. Otherwise, this site wouldn't get near the hits it does or the sheer volume of worthless flame posts I see on it everyday.

My helpful suggestion is this, if he's such a troll, then don't feed him. In short, if you don't have anything concrete to discredit the man, then spare us the rhetoric. Debate the facts and not the bullcrap. So far, you Intel fanboys aren't helping your case any by being even far more venomous than him with your posts, even if they do have a hint of truth.

I hate to be the one to break this to you, but none of those laptops use Core CPUs. These are at least 2-3 years old and use Pentium 4 CPUs.

Also, the problem is with the motherboards, not the CPUs.

How do you sue a notebook? You're broken english and unintelligent postings further prove that your PH.d is more than likely a G.E.D.

Idiot.

It's good to come here and no longer feel rage at your blatant lies. Since it's clear that even you know you are a liar and you're just doing this for ad clicks, it's no longer irritating.

Of course the obvious reply to this laughable drivel about "hot Intel chips" is that if you improperly design a chassis for any CPU it can overheat, and the CPU isn't the only heat producing component in a laptop.

I know you don't care, though, and this whole blog is just a complete joke.

AMD can merge with nVidia? I certainly hope not. Sharikou loves monopolies!

Sharikou do not feed the fanboys.

Imagine a fanboy reading this on his Intel Core overheated notebook, you transformed in an fervent intel fanatic boy. And believe me there are a lot of them.

Ha!

AMD NEVER had the cash to purchase nVidia, with a market cap about twice what ATI's was at the time of the merger. Heck, ATI is a good company, but it was the only one the AMD could actually *afford*.

Also, one of the Dell models mentioned, the Inspiron 5160 can use a Pentium 4!! It's NOT Pentium M, not even a cousin of the Core micro architecture.

Put down the crack pipe, buddy.

Core Laptops? As far as I can tell they (1100, 1150, 5100, 5150, 5160) come with P4 and Celeron Mobile...

You know why people get excited, is becasue a person such as yourself who claims to had a PHD makes posts that are completely false and one sided. I think when you say your PHD it means you have [P]ecker [H]ead [D]isorder.

Now whats your explanation for saying that all these notebooks had core cpu's in them, becasue its obviously wrong.

"It would appear as though it's a systemic problem that's inherent to all of these Inspiron models, Joel Rochon, a partner at Rochon Genova, told the CP."

Inherent to a SPECIFIC MODELS would not make it a CPU issue which is used in hundreds of models...This is the same damn thing as the explosion issue - Dell makes crap products and is focused on profits. You just don't acknowledge this anymore because you made such a big deal of them using AMD chips now. (which BTW is driving AMD profitability into the tank). I actually hope your prediction of Dell using 100% AMD chips by end of 2007 is true so this way all these crappy design issues can then be attributed (incorrectly) to the AMD CPU.

Intel does not make notebooks, Dell does. If it's due to the Core CPU why is Sony, Toshiba, Lenovo... also not getting sued?

Wait I figured it out - it's a 2 stage overheating problem, you know there are 2 cores and therefore a 2 stage heating issue - you know juts like your "technical analysis" that the multiple explosions were due to the individual CPU cores "vaporizing"

Wow the financial results must really be working you over, time to throw up some more smokescreen blogs!

"He obviously can't be too far off the mark if it pisses off you Intel fanboys that much, as the old saying goes, the truth hurts."

The "truth" (I use that term loosely)
- Intel will suffer GAAP loss Q2'06
- Intel will suffer massive operating loss Q3'06
- Intel will suffer massive operating loss Q4'06
- AMD will exit Q4'06 with 40% market share
- The notebook explosion was due to the silicon VAPORIZING
- 4x4 will drive a 20% pricing premium for those chips

would you like me to go on further? Please enlighten with some more "old sayings"

also I dont think Nvidia and AMD will merge, infact. if you see the latest reviews of the G80, its calpable of being programmed into a x86 (claimed by AMD who reviewed the chip )
just its hot and power hungry, and tweaking it could make a very good cpu.

I wonder how many employees and internet dwellers were paid by intel to keep bouncing here with insults XD
its hilarius to see how they insult Sharikou's intelligence, yet keep over ando ver going witht he "you're an idiot""you lack of intelligence" yet noone can make a real inteligent debate.

AMD had the money, but then Nvidia started to grow exponentially thanks to very good designed cpus, Ie the 6800's series and the 7XXX series.. the value of nvidia increased a lot, thus couldnt buy 'em.

No they couldn't. They can't buy Nvidia. Nvidia is worth more than AMD. 9.9bn vs 12.5bn.

I think Intel should buy AMD. That will easily be possible. They can get a huge loan if they need it, they have a great credit record, plus billions of $$$ in the bank. There is always the option of a stock transfer too. They can easily recoupe there losses by firing all AMD employees except those who prove their worth. AMDs 65nm FAB might be a useful property too. I don't think there is much need for 90nm 200mm fab though, so that can be sold to cover expenses.

OK. Enough "herbal" refreshment for you. Intel could have 100X the cash needed to buy AMD and still not be able to buy AMD. Regulators would never allow Intel to buy it's own monopoly.

Now on that same token, AMD will not be able to consider buying AMD while they still own ATI.

Speaking of "herbal refreshments" is one of those AMD's meant to be Nvidia?
