yeah desktop processors, which make up a tiny fraction of the CPU market, emphasize Integer over floating point, but almost every other market is emphasizing FPU stregnth, Cell is 9 FPUs + a measly execution engine, most super computer vector processor contains several FPU. Graphics today don't come in nicely rounded integer format. Sure CPU's today are all integer, you could see that because most modern FPU's in desktop CPUs share some shitty register with the rest of the processor that has little to no thouroghput that the FPU needs. You might as well leave the FPU out and have the ALU do FPU via software -_-

Another liquid nitro overclock...

P4 651 overclocked past 8000MHz on a Asus (of course) P5B which passes the old record.

80 Cores on a Single Chip the size of a fingernail. Innovation!

AFAIK the 8Ghz is complete BS, no stability tests, no nothing.

as for the 80core chip....

CBEA's new spec is 32 SIMD units @ 32GFLOPS a peice. So with less than half the cores, Cell beats Intels chip by 24GFLOPS

However, Intel's chip is rated at 65Watts heat output @ less than a volt.
That's what's really amazing.

http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/2007/04/1 ... lion_loss/

"Toms Hardware reports that declining microprocessor sales have pushed AMD deeply into the red. 'The company reported a net loss of $611 million on revenues of $1.233 billion, which is more than 20% below the guidance the company expected at the end of Q4 2006. The loss includes charges related to the ATI acquisition in the amount of $113 million, but is mainly a result of the increasing competition with Intel in the microprocessor market.' An industry quote reads, "I wonder if AMD will loose the competition to Intel all together?" The response was "They already have: They talked to the competition and said Fly, be free!"

yup... she's dead in the water IMHO AFAIK LMAO ROFL LOL, unless god drops a suitcase with a couple billion in it. They'll prolly mismanage that though....

Too little too late, they shouldn't have rid the 939 train, and shouldn't have done AM2... what a waste. Hopefully IBM or someone will buy them and give those poor engineers a freakin job

So an "I told you so" might be in order here...

Quote:
AMD's chief executive officer Hector Ruiz has resigned, after the company posted second quarter losses of almost $1.2 billion.

The company's financial results certainly lend weight to Ruiz's verdict. AMD made a loss of $1.18 billion in Q2 of 2008 on revenue of $1.349 billion.

Numbers like that make General Motors and Delta look like monster gainers...but the sad part of this story is whether AMD is going to take the Canadian ATI down with them. After the recent generation of video cards, it is sad to see AMD destory such a promising line up...

ATI's taken a HUGE hit and it's almost the same situation with AMD... no real answer to their competitor in their product lineup.

ATI's latest 4800 roll out is trumping NV on price and performance but is it too late?

not really, nvidia recently pushed out the 55nm 8800GTX+ and it gets toped by the 4850.

I do think the HD4000 series is slightly late, it would have been nice to see a GPU of that class against the 8800GT a couple of months ago, but nevertheless the HD4000 series has put ATI back on the map IMO, and I think ATI may have caught nvidia with their pants down. If nvidia continues to offer lackluster GPU's (They do perform good, but not a huge leap over the previous generation, consider the performance difference between the 8 series and 9 series, and the difference between the 9 series and GTX 200 series, they're not large performance leaps), ATI could gain the upper hand if they turned out another series of GPUs of the HD4000 caliber. the problem is, Intel is also entering the GPU market. IMO their first product offering wont be astounding, but could catch some people off guard.

TL;DR: it's a good time to be shopping for a graphics card

Gotta disagree a little~ 4850 and 9800+ arn't in the same league. Break out DX10 where shader processors matter and the 9800+ doesn't even make the charts. The 4800 series is counting on DX10 titles (there is an quote from ATI actually saying that word for word fyi) and they believe they are ahead of their time in that arena. No thanks to NV's overclock solution.

Have you gone NV fanboy? I really hate AMD and I'm still coming around enough to give ATI their kudos. The 4800 series is the last gen from the original ATI company. All future releases have been run through AMD project management.

My prediction is confirmed at all ends at this point.

Quote:
AMD has been struggling for years now with profitability and competing with rival chipmakers. The world's second largest chipmaker has seen hard times and things still aren't looking up for the company.

The chipmaker reported a net loss of $1.424 billion for the quarter or $2.34 per share. The loss for continuing operations for the quarter was $1.414 billion. Q4 2008 revenue was down 28 percent sequentially with Q3 process technology license revenue of $191 million excluded.
