Default AMD will surprise on Monday (Dec10)

AMD will surprise on Monday - The INQUIRER

A WHOLE TRANCHE of systems integrators and distributors alerted the INQ to an announcement Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) will make late Monday.
That's tomorrow, because it's still the Sabbath here, and really we should not be writing.
It has probably figured out 45 nanometre tech, but, more importantly than that, will ship Barcelonas like there's no tomorrow, thanks to its fabless partners.
So, after all, ATI did bring something to the party. It is asset light. Or get your stuff fabbed out. Jerry Sanders III is probably meditating on how " real men have fabs".



Hmmm I wonder what the surprise is.

This should go in Rumour Mill section as 80%-95% of what comes out on the Inquirer's website is complete and utter B.S.

I am starting to trust AMD less than the INQ :/. Let's see what they have to say.

Please provide links to 85-95% of the content that is "Utter BS" please BALISTX. If you cannot then please refrain from posting such irresponsible comments in the future. They are juvenile, inflammatory and argumentative, nothing more.

Thanks.

It was wrong for me to make that statement and for that I retract it and apologize. I was simply stating the usually anything the Inquirer posts is should be taken with a grain of salt and is considered by most in the hardware enthusiast world as rumors.
