AMD shipped 400,000 quad core in 4Q07

AMD is pretty much at break-even in 4Q07.

The TLB bug in K10 is fixed. 45nm will ramp in 1H08. Graphics will see major boost. Project 90 million CPU output in 2008. Server units up significantly. Overall ASP up 4%. 100 design-wins for Puma.

Intel's BK may be sooner. I wish they will have the money to pay treble damages in 2009.

Intel CEO accuses OLPC founder of lying

See INQ report.

Intel missed its own guidiance

The rule has changed. AMD is taking market share across the board. Those $99 2.6GHZ AMD64 X2 CPUs are impossible to resist. Why getting a copycat Core 2 Duo when you can buy the real thing? If you examine the market share of AMD in developed countries such as U.S., you see it takes about 50% of the pie. The inescapable conclusion is that Intel only dominates in 3rd world where bribery and kick-backs work.

Intel guilty until proven innocent

Says the EU. Legal experts say Intel is pretty much done. Intel won't get a hearing nor a jury. It will be summarily slapped with a huge fine.
