Default Industry Update - Q4-2004: AMD adds SSE3 Support, Intel's 925/915 not selling

Every year I make at least one trip to Taipei, Taiwan, usually for the annual Computex show. The flight itself is usually grueling, traveling from the East Coast you're generally in the air for around 20 hours. Then there's getting used to the time difference, which is a full 12 hours from EST. But it's all worth it, because a trip to Taipei is like a hardware-guy's dreamland. Tons of manufacturers spread out all over the northern tip of the island all working on bringing the latest technology and performance to your PCs. It's through these manufacturers that you can get a very interesting perspective on the industry as well as get a good idea for the truth behind a lot of the issues we see.

Current 90nm A64's are revision D, new revision will add SSE3 and more performance..

"Internally, AMD's San Diego and Venice CPUs are referred to as nothing more than Athlon 64 Revision E chips. Revision E includes even more bug fixes and performance improvements over those we found in Revision D, including support for the 13 new instructions that were added with Prescott, more commonly known as SSE3. "

To simplify the message:
1) Intel will screw you (the end user) as much as it screws the trading partners (Motherboard makers) to get to what Intel wants ....... not what the customers want.
2) Intel will no matter what .... keeping Dell (OEM) to push hard on LG775 at xtreme low price to keep the factories going.

Okay, that's good enough for me. Let's hope AMD will capture the opportunity this time and stay ahead.

The 20-hour flight is non-stop direct flight. Otherwise, it is over 24 hours of pain and suffer.

Intel will stop making Desktop replacement laptops. This will bring AMD in the driving seat; end of this year I'm getting myself an A64 laptop

My nephew just cracked the screen on his new A64 3000+ laptop (Compaq - two months old). The replacement screen is $550 while the laptop cost was $1300.

Now he uses an external monitor.
