  1. Obviously (Quad)Crossfire, as pictured in the movie, is highly important to the average computer buyer. And things like native quadcore is also what makes people run to the computer store to get one.

    Just to remind you. Intel is the one who pushed multi-core technology onto the consumer desktops. AMD saw absolutely no need for it to be there that soon. And to be frank, AMD still stands correct as of right now there’s little gain from dual and pretty much none from quad core CPUs for Joe Average.

  3. I don’t get it. Isn’t Hafnium used to reduce the electric power consumption of CPUs? And Quad-CrossFire graphics is AMD’s answer?

  4. good old AMD.. that was pretty good piss take of Intel Hafnium,..

    “you ever smoked Hafnium

    …maybe ”

    lol brilliant

    “Just to remind you. Intel is the one who pushed multi-core technology onto the consumer desktops”

    thats a bit of bullshit ain’t it.. considering it was AMD who brought out the first really good Dual Core cpu’s to consumer market way before intel finally caught up with the duocore

  5. …Really bad video, actually.

    The people they’re interviewing on the vid, save for the graphic designer possibly, can’t even define HD. Of course they wouldn’t know about unreleased prototype technologies.

  6. I’m confused. AMD seems to be talking about it’s amazing graphics capability (which is kinda on the ATI side anyways), while dissing Intel’s new processor manufacturing technique. Are the two really related?

    Besides, people recognize HD a lot more than they would a processor technology built around Element number 72, just because it’s pumped in their heads so much more. I mean, that one old guy on the video even said, “HD is what we all gotta step up to, right?” Clearly, he knows HD exists, and vaguely what it is, even though he may not know anything about it.

  7. Poking fun at Intel’s process tech may make those on the lower end of the bell curve feel better, but will do nothing to help AMD’s own production and scaling problems. Nanometers and Hafnium may not sell chips directly, but the do allow one to make a profit while doing so.

  8. in an industry where enviornmental impact is the last thing on manufacturers minds, i think it’s nice to see one of the big companies (intel) making something that uses less power than its predecessor. Even western digital is starting to ” go green “.

    and anyone who does not see or feel the difference between single core and dual core processors must be afraid of change or something. take 2 machines, give them the same components, even down to the motherboards. use a p4 single core processor in one, and a core 2 duo in the other, and your basic windows (xp) unattended install will finish 10 minutes + faster than the single core p4 machine.

    multitasking is also improved with the ability to have the motherboard split algorithm
    tasking to various duties
