    Intel dual cores costs around $70. There is competition. Actually the competition is not coming from AMD but from Intel. Intel's different microarchitectures are competing each other. One is Sandy Bridge and the other is Ivy Bridge. Haswell will be coming and it will break up the two microarchitectures. AMD is doing the exact same thing. AMD's Bulldozer and Piledriver are competing against each other.
    I'm not talking about the bargain bin i3s of course. I mean the uncrippled, full versions with actual performance in addition to standard features like complete virtualization and AES-NI.

    Competition from older lines is hardly an issue when you have stopped producing that older line. Inventory will sell out and then that's that.

      Yes, that's kind of sad... I always liked the direct communication.

        Echo that. AMD guy, you still there?

          AMD has no plans to stop supporting Linux.

            Most of users don't need complete virtualization and AES-NI.

              True; but the bargain bin prices will also rise without competition.

                Competition is always welcomed. It isn't true that Intel dual core costs $200-$300.

                  The house is on fire, the house is on fire!

                  Do most people on here talk like they're 20 with zero experience outside of small Linux start-ups, if that?

                  Seriously, major changes for AMD have been put into motion and this apocalyptic attitude is truly sad, mainly from people who don't care about AMD in the first place and then added on by die hard AMD CPU fans who think AMD is ending their Desktop lines.

                  ARM isn't replacing Vishera/Steamroller, blah, blah blah. Having a hybrid solution for HSA computing that allows systems to run on extremely low power set ups while not doing heavy lifting is a sign of intelligence by designers at AMD.

                  HSA Computing. Learn it, live it, love it.

                    OSRC closed accordng to heise.de

                    Heise.de (German c't mag) claims that AMD has indeed closed the OSRC. Bad news for both, AMD and Linux IMHO.

                      As a long-term supporter of AMD this is truly disappointing.

                        http://ark.intel.com/products/65527/...Cache-3_10-GHz

                        vt-x is there even for cheap chips, that was the cheapest from the ivy bridge lineup, the older ones are even cheaper.

                        http://ark.intel.com/products/53418/...Cache-2_60-GHz

                        vt-d is something like amd-vi, which is only possible with am3 cpus and 890fx and series amd series 9 chipsets - all of those are without integrated gfx btw. ok, you could get aes-ni support cheaper with amd, but not so many ppl use it, intel wants you to buy i5 for that feature but definitely NOT to get vt-x.

                          That's exactly what we know and that's the biggest problem: AMD is going to release new architecture. New architecture needs drivers to perform (or work at all), especially hybrid solutions! Who is going to develop them for Linux? Intel?

                            so

                            if i vote for Romney, will AMD relase a new driver for my 4200hd and 9800 pro?

                            I hope microsoft don't upgrade my Xbox 360, because AMD won't support Windows 8 on it.

                            Resource management my ass.

                              Just one example. 157 eur ~= 200 usd. Desktop dual core i3.

                                I said "complete virtualization", that includes IO or VT-d as Intel calls it.
