At the conference AMD?s Graphics CTO Eric Demers described how the company plans to evolve the GPU and have it break free from the ?shackles of fixed-function designs? by heavily integrating future general-purpo... [ Read full article ]

Default Don't know whether it's just me, but...

By the looks of things recently, AMD talks loudly everyday about their new inventions, revolutionary products talks talks & talks, while Intel sits working quietly and progressing on and on. Just as a point of view Intel has already released it's 2nd generation 32nm cpu's while AMD still doesn't have any (on sale at least). Same with AMD vs nVidia. Long & loud talks about the cayman gpu's while nvidia surprised everyone sticking the 580 and a bit later the 570 in everyone's face..
Such a shame, for mr it's sad that there's no proper competition in the cpu market.. :(
I know maybe I sound harsh, but hey it's an opinion not a fanboysm in any way. :)
Just being honest.

Not trying to start a fanboy war either (in fact im pretty impartial to AMD/ATI v NVIDIA, i just buy the product I think offers the best value) but the 5 series was hardly a revolution and NVIDIA aren't exactly full of action.

AMD caught NVIDIA out with their 4 and 5 series, which both offered pretty substantial leaps in performance, to the extent that NVIDIA had to show a fake card at Computex to assure its customer base that they were in fact doing something. Not to mention that the initial release of Fermi in the 4 series was a pretty weak contender, the 5 series was just a revision of what should have been considering the extra dev time. Also the 580 isn't really that competitively priced for it to be a "surprise," I'd say that the 6950 with its unlocking capacity took that cake.

So for the moment if anybody has been full of inaction I would have to say it would be NVIDIA :S
