Phenom b3 frags Core 2 Quad

Phenom is faster than Q6600 by a healthy 30% margin in FEAR.

Once again, the brainless and dickless owner of this now dead blog failed to mention the b4 got beat by the OLD C2 in just about every other category, sometimes by a huge margin.

Of course he also failed to mention that the 45um Intel processors are even faster...

Impressive Quad and the retail price looks to be reasonable.
AMD take care when developing technology, Intel on the other hand stick Dual cores together and trick purchases into thinking they are buying a real Quad...when it's fake. Native Quad Core like Phenom multi-tasks better and all those Intel fanboys who preach Core2Quad is better, will be crying when tomorrows software unleashes the Phenoms true potential and leaves Intel's Junk trailing behind. AMD is the logical choice for any new system...INTEL SUCK!

Would you like talk about performance per watt?

What a dipshit... Q6600 is how old? And the new Phenom with a badly needed bug fix and 100MHz more clock speed still can't match the Core 2 Q6600 in most other benchmarks. I don't really see this as good news for AMD. Their top of the line Phenom is only in the same ballpark as a 1 year old Core2. Usually, when you try to intercept a performance target you should target what you think the competition will have in 6 months time. AMD decided it was best to target a 1 year old processor? What a joke! I guess if Intel were to target where AMD would be 6 months from now Intel could just release a Yorkfield. Oh wait, they already did that.

AMD is toast. BK in Q2'09

Sharidouche you are a douchebag.

Intel Q9300 at 2.5 ghz blows Amd X4 9800 B3 out of the water.

Turn of the lights the party's over (for Amd that is) or in other words you can hear the fat lady warming up to sing. AMD R.I.P.

Ouch.

I guess you can only thumb your nose at analysts and investors for so long before they begin to resent it. Even with all of the leeway that AMD has gotten, it seems that patience is running very thin. I guess when you get the benefit of the doubt well past the point where you deserved it, getting yanked back into reality can be especially painful.

2008 is looking to be especially painful...

They might have a long wait. After dodging persistent questions on its asset-smart/fab-lite manufacturing strategy, Ruiz could only promise last week that the company would provide details in the "near future."

Those details might not be known for some time based on Ruiz's definition of near future. "I am not really trying to be evasive, but I think we are truly making tremendous progress in this area. I do not want to be flippant, but, to me, near future is any time in the next 90 days to the rest of the year," Ruiz said.

It may not be clear to Mr. Ruiz, but he has been both evasive with his answers to questions on the asset smart manufacturing strategy over the last four quarters and repeatedly flippant with investor concerns about the company's future.

While AMD's management is taking its time working out details of the asset-smart manufacturing strategy, the company's stock is getting clobbered and its costs remain uncompetitive compared to Intel's.
