AMD laughs at Intel with Opteron Bulldozers

There is no such thing as the last laugh in the server chip business.

AMD: 'Bobcat' smaller, faster than Intel's Atom

AMD says that its upcoming "Bobcat" core for netbooks and notebooks is smaller than a single-core Intel Atom chip – and faster.

AMD cuts to the core with 'Bulldozer' Opterons

IT shops buy current products, but they always have their eyes out one or two generations to assure themselves they aren't buying into a dead-end product.
