Why Intel is really dead this time around

AMD Fusion is the killer. Intel's Sandy Bridge, even when it resumes shipping in April, will not be enough to extract Intel from the inevitable decline and fall.

The problem with SB is that its graphics is low end, which makes the whole chip low end. If one wants a high end Intel based PC, he or she will still need to buy a separate discrete AMD GPU (or Nvidia). That's what I observed in the stores. The Core i5 PCes are all low end. The medium and up PCes are either 100% AMD or equipped with ATI graphics.

Fusion totally changes the landscape. With a single APU, you get equally matched compute and visual power. Intel's SB solution is like a big dog with short legs, or a Mercedes with a Volkswagen engine -- the GPU portion is the weakest link that breaks the whole value proposition. AMD has a balanced design, you simply won't regret the purchase. At the very high end, you get Bulldozer+Massive discrete GPU requiring 300 watts. At the medium level, you get Llano with 400+ SP units sufficient for any DX11 game, and 4 Stars cores enough for all common tasks at a small power budget, money well spent. At the portable side, a Fusion netbook allows you to have first-person-shooter fun on a flight from San Francisco to Beijing on a single battery charge.

Intel is so yesterday.

Not as big as the corn-holing Intel is receiving about the fubared Sandybridge motherboards, say hello to your new friend BEN DOVER chumps! The real reach around for Intel will be for when Bulldozer hits the shelves too!

@ anom @ feb 21
well see this is the usual AMD fanbo"i" junk .... bullshitdozer should have been released 2009 right?
Moron we are now in 2011 ... if there is anything wrong with intel ... they don't bullshit people ... they are very firm with their release dates.
Cougarpoint had issues but it is all fixed now so go hump another tree goat.

Intel has provided a unique solution with Sandy Bridge. It is a combination of a poor performing CPU, and poor performing GPU, all in one overpriced package!

@ PENIX .. aka MORON
If what you say Intel CPU is "poor" performing, then AMD sucks even more since it cant even compete with original i7. I mean moron do you know what the **** you are talking about? you just shot AMD in the butt.
AMD might have a good solution combining GPU-CPU but don't get all pumped up yet, Bullshitdozer was a 2009 product remember?
PENIX ... you are sharidouche aren't you? LOL ... I love messing with you ..

The only thing that's gonna matter Mr. (Intelfanboy)Anonymous here soon is Intel's lost sales to Bulldozer, so take your so called "missed" release dates and shove them where the sun doesn't shine. If I made a list of all the late release dates of Intel's past products, paper launches and screw-up launches like the Sandybridge motherboards, I'd have to add several more posts to get them all.(the Pentium FDIV bug was another beautiful example as well haha) OHHH... And once again you Intel ladies never cease to fail in taking the bait to reply hahahahaha! Face it fools, you can't deal with the reality that AMD has a solid line-up this time around and are fixing to lower the boom again on Intel ala the Opteron launch of 03'! BUHBAI 4 NAO SUCKAZ!!! XD

No, I am not Sharikou.

I visited NewEgg this morning, and noticed that the AMD Phenom II X6 1090T Black Edition is the customer choice winner for the last 6 months in a row. Infact, AMD won all but one of the customer choice awards for the past year!

Please stop stroking yourself fanboys. Intel is done.

The only thing exploding come Bulldozer launch the Annoy-douche from Feb 24, will be all the Intel fanboys and Intel execs brains from the performance of the Bulldozer core across the AMD lineup. GET READY SUCKAZ, it's only months away! Providing benchmarks are done with software NOT Intel biased(or paid off I should say) or done with an Intel compiler, SURE, bring them on! If there is anything I've learned over the years is anything you Intel chumps and Intel themselves hate more is a level playing field when it comes to benchmarks for processors! Ta-ta for now chumps!

...And Intel fannys keep wishing Intel had a decent graphics card division! X^D Maybe they'll buy Nvidia one day... (when Jen-Hsun get's short on cash that is haha) Nahhh, then again he'd rather let Nvidia die before that happens I imagine. Regardless, Intel's time of dominance is about to come to a well needed end chumps! This is for the entire industry's own good, besides, coming from a company that's been sued by several nation's own government for anti-trust violations speaks volumes of the mode of operations. It's high time Intel gets "de-throned" and I for one embrace it. Later suckaz!

If Intel was able to buy Nvidia, they would undoubtedly chase away their best talent, and ruin the already lagging product line. Intel would then do the only thing they are capable of, crudely gluing a 2nd rate Nvidia GPU to their unstable CPU. Once again, this would produce an over priced, under performing, piece of unstable garbage; exactly what we have all come to expect from the rehab reject engineers over at Intel.

Hehehe. In the light of disastrous Buldozer benchmarks i think its AMD that is gonna get dead soon this time around :) It was a gamble, server oriented gamble, but gamble that didn't work out at all. You can talk about cores and modules all day long, but its hard to hide disastrous IPC that chip has. I find it funny, but it seems AMD CEO lost his job not due to "mobile strategy dissagreements", but rather cause of disgrace the Buldozer is.

I think it's worth reiterating this again -- the leaked Bulldozer benchmarks border on abysmal. The fixed Sandy Bridge SATA interface logic is already back shipping in quantity, and the i5-2xxx and i7-2xxx series of processors being provided are absolutely destroying every performance segment that AMD can currently come up with.

Even worse, the Sandy Bridge platforms are utterly demolishing AMD in terms of total performance per watt, total thermal output, and video transcode operations.

I'm sure the canned response will be either A: "the GPU is terrible" or B: "Intel is so unstable". Humorously enough, if Intel was truly so unstable, that would suggest they would have the overwhelming MINORITY of installed base in highly available (ie, five nine's worth of uptime) computing systems.

I also like how AMD somehow had all their technology 'stolen' from Intel? If it weren't for AMD building x86 clones 25 years ago, AMD wouldn't even exist. So before you go on about how AMD pioneered all these interesting things, keep in mind how AMD even came to be. Cyrix and VIA also started there too, and they're nowhere to be found in mainstream computing.

Finally, and probably most saddening for the AMD fans, the renamed ATI graphics division is essentially the ONLY reason they haven't gone bankrupt over the last three years. Had their only product been their abysmal processors, they would have bled dry in late 2009.

Oh, and what about Global Foundries awe-inspiring lithography capabilities that I keep hearing about? Who was the first foundry to mass produce CPU's and GPU's in 65nm? 45nm? And again in 32nm? Who was the first foundry to mass produce flash and dynamic ram in 25nm? In fact, who is the ONLY foundry who has shown fully operational CPU's in 25nm scale? Who was the first foundry to actually figure out and mass deploy Hi-K dielectrics?

Who was the first foundry to put a billion transistors on a single functioning chip?

Here's a hint: the logo color on the front of those foundries were blue :^)

I'm right here watching the AMD fanbois try oh so very hard to lie to themselves, as Intel once again crushes AMD.

REmember when Shira-douche claimed Intel was going to BK a long time ago?

Remember how he claimed AMD had faster processors that used less power?

HAHAHAHAHAH

The only vomit around here is the shit that comes out of Shiradouche's mouth. The guy lies so much that I'm surprised you can't smell the shit when you visit his blog. Hell AMD has gotten so bad, that he only updates this place once every 7 or 8 weeks. He needs to find somethign else to troll because he has failed here, just like he has failed in his life. But thats what happens when you lie about having a PhD and when you lie to advertise for AMD.

Tick Tock Tick Tock, Lex is here.

Much has come and gone and only one thing is for sure. Intel makes billions and billions. Rolls them into R&D, fabs and ramps them to produce hundreds of millions of CPUs. Tick tock Tick tock, like a clock. Say what you want they can't be beat they are only pulling futher and further ahead.

I was here telling you AMD fanboys at 90nm and what is it 32nm and INTEL got HighK Metal Gate, AMD/GF got NOTHING. Soon INTEL will have 22nm finfets and what will AMD be running SiO2 ROLF.

Why does nothing in the blog seem to ever tally up with reality?
I have looked back through reams of your rantings, but none of them seem to have been in any way accurate.
What is wrong with you? Maybe you should have a look back through your own postings. Is this intended to be some kind of dark satire of a deranged fanboy?
I have benchmarked both AMD & Intel parts as part of my job, to run huge CFD jobs on MPI clusters. The only area where the AMD parts are competitive is price. You can get a very large number of cores, very, very, very cheaply, but they are MUCH slower cores, with a slower memory subsystem. In some cases, this is an acceptable compromise, if you don't consider the cost of power consumption, but only where management are too stupid to take this into account (yes, I have seen such places). The system integration, and quality is also probably not quite on par with Intel's, but still OK. I have never had problems with Intel boards, but have suffered various gremlins with the stability of brand new AMD platforms.
The benchmarks of large commercial CFD/FEA codes don't lie - StarCD, Ricardo VECTIS, Fluent, Abaqus all run faster on Intel hardware.

Dude, facts don't matter to Shiradouche and his handfull of fanbois who cannot understand those facts because they are so far planted in Shiradouce's ass they cannot even start to think for themselves.

Fact is, Intel processors are faster, more power and thermal efficeient and own the high end, middle end and notebook markets. The only place AMD really has to play as of late is the lower priced market...

AMD bagtard fans: you really need to stop circle jerking each other. AMD's relegated to the cheap, underperforming, hot, and miserable pile that it is.

Intel laughs in the face of AMD's miserable existence.
