I have joined the AMD side!
(For the moment anyway)

the only hope for amd is if they integrate graphics into the cpu better than intel. technically intel is the largest gpu manufacturer in the world but amd owns ati which produces faster gpu's.

they both are expected to integrate gpu's into hte cpu socket for their next releases. i suspect intel will do better at it though since their gpu's (although slower) are MUCH more power efficient and produce WAY less heat. amd processors which are already hot mixd with the ati team's total disregard for heat or power management either leads to an oven of a system.

intel is on the top now and i think it will stay there for at least another generation of cpu's if not more.

Integrating GPU's into the CPU? That makes no sense whatsoever. It's been shown historically that building one size fits all CPU's is simply expensive and rigid.

Intel GPU/CPU combo in 2009? - Neoseeker News Article

one of the first ones i found on google just now. first read about it in maximum pc magazine.

i am not saying it is a good/bad idea, they are just doing it.

Not sure of the benefit of it TBH. Unless they are doing it in order to control the data channels through the machine in support of TC?

tc?

well i graphics cards offload cpu usage considerably. maybe that is the idea. since gpus are like a million times faster than cpus at floating point calculations etc. (much slower at logic though). keeping it close by reduces the travel time.

so reasons are there, how valid are the reasons when you know that it will make the cpu hotter is another arguement.

TC is trusted computing. Basically it's a combination of DRM, special hardware and contrived software to try and create a OS which cannot be used to copy HD-DVD/Bluray/whatever but can still play it. Well TC is more and less than that but it is what it's being used for.

Some of the demands from content providers have included full integrated circuitry so that people cannot tap channels internally. Hard to tap transistors.

oh cool. i am amazed how far they go to prevent that kinda stuff now a days. i mean if it was dvd protection i would understand sorta but who has a blueray/hddvd player. but i may just be a special case as i dont even have a dvd drive in my computer...

Intel all the way, though AMD had a good idea integrating memory and processor, I think if intel did that too AMD would be in an even worse situation than right now.
