AMD's next step in cpu - must read! (add your own links too!)


Recommended Posts

if we were say...invaded by aliens with butt-kicking technology...or some other crazy world-ending event (asteroid gonna smash earth and we need a mega-supa-killa-badassmofo computer to calculate the exactitude of the magnitude of the deceleration vector of the charlie-niner trans-oscillating graviton reaction cluster?) then we might see Intel and AMD working together

 

otherwise...its like asking North and South Korea to come up with a Friendship Dance lol.

to keep this in focus, i'll edit the title of this topic and post some links from google news so everyone can read about it, and I will also move this to 64-bit section so everyone there can take a read:

owie...to RMA a component that isnt defective ends up costing companies (and vendors) a serious dollar...and that leads to higher prices and stricter RMA policies.

 

we had the issue with the NF2 boards where people would try to RMA them because they would only overclock to 240Mhz and no higher...it became a nightmare and made us adjust our RMA policy, and it even nearly forced some vendors to stop carrying our product because they though all of our NF2 boards were inherently defective.

 

but

 

at the RMA tables in teh back of the office, we found that only 1 our of about 45 boards were truly in need of an RMA...the other 44 were in perfect condition...
