I hope they do a good job, Intel needs the competition!

Lets not forget that there is no architecture changes here. They will be better than there 95NM counter parts, but hoping for them to be better than Intel is just dreaming in colour. Note that I will be purchasing one of these to run in my Spyder system. I think that AMD CPU's are great, even if they don't perform as much as Intel's.

If they could just push those cache sizes a bit more they might get something really good out of those chips. I like AMD too, It'd be nice to see them with some killer CPU's in the future.

Exactly. We'll see if they can pull something out of their sleeve in the next couple years.

Not to throw water on the tepid fire, but...

If AMD's transition from 130nm to 90nm, and 90nm to 65nm is anything to go by, prepare to be underwhelmed.

Also, AMD has nothing that will seriously threaten Nehalem. The planned competitor is 'Hydra', aka K10.5 Rev. D: 45nm, 1MB L2/6MB L3 cache, up to 8 cores. That is simply not enough to beat an architecture that has been on the books for the better part of a decade.

I see your poem and raise you a Senryu and a Haiku:

Like a man drowning
AMD gasps for air
Finding only scorn

Phenom glimmers so bright
but only for a mere moment
like streaking comet
