Oh, dear.... more AMD fail

I don't think AMD are going to be in the desktop CPU market much longer. They have had a loss of $157 million in earnings and are sacking 15% of their employees. They need to pull something out of the bag to either compete with Ivy or for Haswell next year, other wise I can't see them having a place in the market.

Because, as we said in the review, if you've already got an AM3+ board, this is the fastest CPU AMD have to offer.

I have fx 8150 and am very disappointed with it and I was hoping this would be a nice upgrade but apparently not as they just don't provide enough edge over a I5 3570k so it looks like I'm Im going Intel.

Amd duddddddddeeeeeessss/dudettes! Wtf!

As a long term AMD fan, i love my HD 7970 and the A10-5800K l have just thrown into a media center is outstanding, however l have moved over to a i7 3610QM + GTX 680M in a P170EM and have just ordered the bits for a ITX/i5 3550 + HD 7970. AMD where did you go wrong with the CPU's DUDDDDDDDDEEEEEESSSS!

Regards.
