Exactly Sky. AMD would have had a lot more traction with this stance IF they had the performance crown. They dont. They have not had it for numerous generations (939 X2 days were the last they could claim this). Rightly or wrongly, when people think AMD...they think budget builds. Budget builds are by their very nature meant to save money...yet AMD expects consumers to spend a fortune on new software just so they can use their cheaper gear. This is not an optimal solution. Most people will vote with their wallets and go with the slightly more expensive Intel gear...and save money overall.

Trinity is a trifecta of terrible. It requires a new platform, new software and STILL is power hungry. What. Were. They. Thinking?
