After the first day of Computex, three of AMD's executives sat down with a handful of press for a small Q&A session that covered some candid topics on Intel's products as well as their own.
The Athlon 64 X2 Processor
AMD is getting set to push their first dual core Athlon 64 X2 processors out to the world next month. How do they stand up to the Intel CPUs released last month? Are they going to be worth the extra cash they are asking for?
A Need for a PPU?
AGEIA is attempting to break the mold of the PC gamer's box by adding a completely new card into the mix: a physics processor. With promises of fully interactive worlds and fluid dynamics unseen before, how can you go wrong?
Introduction and Specifications
Asus is attempting to move into the desktop Pentium M market with this adaptor that allows you to use a 479-pin P-M processor on a 478-pin motherboard.
Is there DDR2 in AMD's Future?
Various reports online have pointed to AMD making a change in socket sometime next year as well as possibly moving to DDR2 memory technology. With some more information on the subject, I decided to show it to you for your thoughts and opinions.
Introduction and Dual Core Specifications
Intel is the first out of the gate with dual core processors for the desktop platform. Is this something that you are going to be interested in? Heavy multitaskers will definitely want to read this.
Athlon 64 E3 Stepping
AMD has a new revision of the Athlon 64 on the way out the door codenamed Venice. Not only does it improve memory compatibility with four modules, it adds SSE3 instructions. Did I mention we got a 40% overclock out of it too?
The Pentium M (Dothan) Architecture
DFI is bringing the Pentium M platform to desktop PCs. Is this something you might be interested in? Does the Pentium M really have what it takes to out perform the best of the Intel 600-series and Extreme Edition processors?
Dual Core for Everyone?
AMD shared their plans for the upcoming dual core processors with us. We wrap up the information and present it to you here.
Introduction and Processor Specifications
Intel has added SpeedStep technology, 64-bit extensions, Execute Disable Bit and an extra MB of L2 cache to the P4 line and the Extreme Edition processor. Is it enough to cut the distance to the Athlon?
Introduction, Processors and Chipset
Intel releases a new Extreme Edition processor with a new 1066 MHz FSB. Can it catch AMD?
Introduction and Processors
AMD's new FX-55 processor raises the bar on performance. Can Intel ever hope to catch up now?
64-bit Gaming is Here
AMD announced the arrival of the first 64-bit game on retail shelves, as well as its improvements on their processors. Is the 64-bit gaming revolution really here?
Introduction to Sempron and Celeron D
AMD announces the Sempron processor to compete against the Celeron in the budget PC market. What can you expect from both of these platforms for your next low-cost system?
Intel today releases the embargo on their new processor package, two new chipsets and of course, DDR2 and PCI Express.
Looking at the new 939-pin Processors
The long anticipated 939-pin transition for Athlon 64 processors is now here, and we look at the two premium releases and what the change means to you.
Introduction and System Setup
If you thought the Athlon 64 3000+ release on the market was odd, wait until you see the 2800+ that has appeared on the scene.
Intel today has released the 3.4 GHz versions of the Prescott and Northwood cores â€“ we compare them to the latest processors from AMD.
AMD is ready once again with a new Athlon FX processor, running now at 2.4 GHz. Will it walk away with another total victory?
A Planned and Surprise Release
The last time we reviewed a processor from AMD was back on September 23rd and that was for the launch of the first Athlon 64 processor, the 3200+. Since then AMD has been somewhat quiet in all major aspects, that is until today.
