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.

    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.

    Default 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.
