    Goddamn politics over code quality. This is a bad decision, and I'm saying this as someone who thinks both Mir and Wayland should go behind the sauna.

    I can hear libv thinking "I told you so".

      Floating point performance with Intel is MUCH better than AMD CPU's.

        Your link says nothing about floating point...

          FYI, just in case you mean the Sandra results on the benches tab, Sandra is compiled on ICC.

            I guess you could be right, looking at it though, it seems core for core, it's still pretty tight at multithreading. But lets not forget Power efficiency. or that the 3770K is 3.5GHz, and the FX-8350 is 4.0GHz.

            The 3770K is 77W TDP, while the AMD FX-8350 is 125? that's a LOT of power wasted when pushing them.

            The Haswell 4770K Claims 84W TDP, and is at 3.5GHz, however, it's still lower than 125W

            Overclock the 3770K to 4GHz, and see what happens to the benchmarks then.

              AMD CPU's are power hungry & inefficient compared to Intel CPUs.
              AMD CPUs aren't bad if you are Windows user or live in country with cheap energy and low temperatures.

                Funny how many here have no fucking clue what this decision means.

                This does NOT mean that Intel graphics won't work with Mir.
                This does NOT mean that XMir won't work with Intel either.

                This only means that Canonical has to maintain the patches on their own. That's it.

                  Very true sir. And they're cheaper too! They're good gaming CPU's too.

                  But in the end you get what you pay for. I don't feel AMD is innovating much though lately.

                    That's the practical aspect of it.

                    The political aspect is that Intel has essentially said Canonical should piss off.

                      Oh Well Intel is going the way of the Dodo Bird. Clubbed to Death by an ARM.

                      All the more for AMD, and Nvidia to thrive off.
                      You do realize Lenovo is on the brink of no longer making surface rt tablets because the new Intel CPUs are just as efficient and much faster?

                      I know we're talking a different platform, but this is still an indication of the complete opposite of what's going to happen compared to your statement.

                      Unless, of course, you were just being sarcastic.
