AMD to sell fewer than 1 million Phenoms in 2007

FAB36 is fully converted to K10 production, AMD is sitting on one quarter of Brisbane CPUs. Going forward, it will be K10. Chartered still makes some 90nm cores.

Nvidia needs a major major price cut to compete. The AMD HD3850 is up to 4x faster than the Nv 8600 GTS.

The 55nm process works flawlessly. No wonder AMD is working on asset-lite strategy, with zero investment on FABs, AMD can use TSMC to crank out 55nm lower end K10s just to take market share -- no SOI, no nothing, just plain bulk silicon -- enough for 2.2GHZ speeds. FAb36 will be dedicated to high value products such as Opteron, Phenom and Bull Dozer.

BTW: Vista sucks, but the update on Nov 14 from Microsoft (with zillions of stability fixes) and Nvidia seem have fixed the problem.

First post. And is this actually good news for AMD?

Its just you that sucks.

I have to agree with Sharikou about Vista. It won't go on my machine. At least not my main machine.

With XP, I can stretch the desktop across two monitors but I can't with Vista.

How's that for backwards progress? Damn you, Microsoft.

"The AMD HD3850 is up to 4x faster than the Nv 8600 GTS."

Unless you want your Crossfire setup to run at 1900 x 1200, apparently.

I still don't understand why reviewers benchmark video cards at resolutions and settings that produce awful performance. I want to know what the card can do, not what it fails miserably at.

But at least there is good news for AMD, it looks like the 3850 will do well in its particular niche. But they still need a top-end card to compete with NVIDIA at the bleeding edge.

Either you are a liar or just stupid. Pick one, cause you are just wrong. I work every day with a streched desktop.

Apparently you are also a chickenshit too Howell.

As I said, the corporate car will pick you up at Logan or Manchester (your choice), and bring you back to the airport for your flight out. At no cost to you (although I do hope you ain't a cheap bastard and actually give my driver a tip).

WTF are you talking about you idiot??? Do you even read what you type? 55nm K10s? Are you really THAT fucking stupid....wait...I know the answer...

Yes.

HAHHAHAHAHA! I just noticed that...

a 55um K10?

HAHAHAHAHHAHA!


Isn't Sharikook supposed to be some type of CPU/IC/Microprocessor expert?


HAHHAHAHAHHAHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHA


Fucking ASSCLOWN!

Sharikou is actually correct.

AMD will ship fewer than one-million Phenoms.

Why is this correct?

Because ZERO is a number which is less than one-million.

I remind you of an earlier quote from Sharikou:

Intel will BK at roughly four quarters after Phenom enters the market.

ROFLMAO indeed Gutterat!
