Re: Conroe In Stores July 23rd (Core Duo 2)
Its funny cause all these reports at harware sites are talking about
how awesome INTEL chips are going to be and yet theres no buzz about
what effect it will have on AMD. They still seem like either they are
fixated on the present and past where AMD is doing really well or do
they know something we dont know? Cause if you read Anandtechs he
makes it seem like AMD has no performance gains from M2s and INTEL is
ready to blow them out of the water with the new conroes.
Heres another kind of wacky rumor at the site
AMD and ATI about to merge?
They also shoot down a rumor Google will acquire a browser to compete
with IE7. They point IE7 may be delayed so it gives Google time to
establish their browser. Speculation developed after there were
reports Gates was back in charge behind the scenes controlling MS
tightly again in their overal strategic moves and that they were
getting ruthless and tough again after all the MS monoplyand
anti-gates furor died down.
They are supposedly moving against more aggressively Google, PS3 and
Java. There were reports Google was pissed off at various moves to
build in things in IE7/ Vista to push the MSN search engine.
There are some great hardware deals now with ATI lowering prices to
compete with NVIDIA and INTEL coming with interesting stuff already
and lowering prices.
