AMD’s catch up attempt

Here‘s AMD’s feeble attempt at trying to recapture its former glory.  Personally, I am typing off of an Intel-powered laptop (HP DV2000t), but I am cheering AMD on.  Nowadays, whenever I build boxes for others that are basically internet appliances, they are AMD based.  Servers and other intense applications still get the nod toward the Blue team though.  Unfortunately, this article above doesn’t really instill a lot of confidence in me on AMD.  I do hope they stick around though– who else will be able to keep Intel in check?

Does anyone here still remember the days when a slot-based P2 cost $700?  Quite a difference with the post-K7/K8 days of now.
