I'd like to at least see some performance numbers. They should try their hardest to get Bulldozer onto market before sandy bridge makes a comeback.

Better yet, make sure they ATLEAST can equal sandy bridge. Or else pointless chips are pointless

Personally I dont care if they compete with Intel on that basis or not. Where AMD really shines is cost versus performance and Heat versus watts used. For Portable computing (laptops, netbooks and tablets) you cannot beat AMD. they run cooler, Quieter and consume much less power. that is a big plus in the mobile communities.

This. I dont like having a really hot laptop on my lap for ages at a time. And while, depending on the laptop, amds can get hot they dont get near as hot a intel stuff.

Yeah, my next laptop will definitely be an AMD.

I'm not saying I don't respect their current niche in the market, I just want there to be more fierce competition. The problem is that the sandy bridge processors perform better AND are equally efficient (where as the 1366 i7s like mine just performed better). This is why AMD needs to step it up or there's going to be no reason to get them when the price for a way better Intel is pennies more, talking strictly desktop chips here guiz.
