AMD 90nm Press Release = No Answer
Fool Me Once, Shame On You. Fool Me Twice, Shame On Me. Fool Me More?
First, we had AMD denying problems with 130nm Hammers by saying yields were good, etc. when it was obvious to everyone in the world that they couldn't make fast ones. So they delayed and pushed back desktop Hammers over six months until they could.
Next, we had Intel denying problems with 90nm Prescotts by saying yields were good, etc., then it became obvious to everyone in the world that they couldn't make fast ones. So they delayed Prescott for a year, and now are delaying and pushing back any faster Prescotts, substituting Northwoods where they can.
After that, we had IBM promising a 3GHz 90nm SOI chip to Apple, but found itself unable to get more than 2.5GHz out the door in time. IBM isn't delaying and pushing back 3GHz chips; they just said don't expect to see one anytime soon.
Now we have AMD denying problems with 90nm Hammers by saying yields are good, etc., but delaying and pushing back the introduction of fast ones and substituting 130nm ones where they can.
How many times does this song have to be played before people catch on that it's the same old tune?
