Default AMD makes some friends

This collaboration may give Intel the incentive to speed up its PC chip development over the next few years:

Anyway hopefully the mainstream 45nm quads will be available by March.

Interesting- I suppose it's a bit of a double edge sword in terms of future profits for AMD- the bulk of the expertise will come from them, with basically just money from the others, and they'll all reap the benefits in the end. I'd like to see an IBM/AMD consortium

The others may only be contributing money, but that's something that AMD seriously needs right now. I'm inclined to consider this mostly good news.

This is good news indeed.

Intel giving the only response it can.

It's all politics anyways.

as qwerty said it is all politics
but the smaller companies stand to gain a little ground over intel if everything works out.

it will be interesting to see what this technology would do to the video card market as well

A mutual bonding of IBM and AMD would be interesting, and might make sense since I personally fell that the end for the x86 architecture is nearing. Ill make a different thread for that.

would so, ATI is using 55nm now and Nvdia is just started using 65nm... i would say after a year or 2 32nm CPUs are out GPU's will be made at 32nm. Wonder how fast those will be then...
