It seems that HP stabbed Intel in the front

See report on EC hearing on Intel's alleged anti-trust violations.

I like the EU courts. U.S. courts are for rich people. In EU, Intel gets no jury, no lawyer, no legal tricks to play. It is simple justice. Armed raids, one hearing, and sentencing -- it is all no-hassle and swift justice.

Intel needs 100% CPU to play a movie

Even Intelers say the situation is stupid for being Intelers. But of course, Intelers claim they only use Intel chips for non-visual experience. They don't play games, not even 3D pinball; they don't view movies; they got no life beyond text based computing, which Intel systems are pretty good at.

100 Puma laptops ganging on poor centrino is not going to be a pretty scene.

Intel is in deep dodo

The magic word spread fear in Intel headquarters. Nvidia's Huang also had some sleepless nights. Both Paul and Jen-Hsun curse it: 780G. What is it?

It's AMD's solution for the planet today. 780G+any AM2 CPU, and you have the whole world. I am not kidding. The feature list is staggering, and the power consumption is surprisingly low. Even the picky INQ folks sing praises.

AMD understands the need of the people. They need the ability to watch HD movies, play top games, have six SATA drives, 12 USB2 ports, HDMI, DVI, displayport, UVD, Hybrid CrossFire, and everything else for $100. This is Paul and Jen-Hsun's nightmare but an American dream and it is true.
