AMD to Show the First Temash-Based Product Prototypes in CES Timeframe.
But instead thely left crapptastic Intel Atoms to burn the market and as usual have no real Bobcats for more than a half-year after formal announcement. Simply AMD marketing strategy sucks and we as consumers must pay that out as Intel pushes chips prices upwards and AMD "grudgingly" follows them
Piledriver is mediocre, but at least not horrible like BD. NVIDIA is gaining share in the GPU section. Bobcat is already better than anything in the segment, and this just expands that.
That they'll have silicon in early January is very good news.
Jaguar not only expands the market downwards, into much lower power devices, it also moves the processor upwards, with 10% better clock speed, 15% better IPC, and some configurations with double the cores. All while being much smaller than the already small Bobcat cores.
This is where their opportunity lies, and it seems like they are executing on it. If they do, it will transform the company, if they don't, it will be the same old AMD languishing from quarter to quarter, just trying to stay afloat.
This is a critical time for them, and this is their critical technology.
