- Fake AMD, Intel is bad, Embedded Opteron, etc.
Ugly story in Taiwan where 60000 remarked AMD chips have been seized by local Police. Digitimes has all the details here. Of course this is nothing compared to Intel unfair commercial practice in Japan against AMD and Transmeta. Asahi has good datas about that here, Google has tons of  juicy headlines here.and PC PRO is talking of insults here! On the front of honesty, AMD is still working hard and offers on one hand, Opteron an extended life in the embedded market as said in all the headlines located here and, on the other, announces broad support for coming dual-core from leading vendors here. We just pray that Intel won't put too much pressure on them...

- Turion 64 Tested, IBM & Opteron, and more...
An AMD Turion 64 2800+ Socket 754 90nm running at 1.6 GHz (35W!) with 1M L2 Cache has been benchmarked at Xtreme here. eWeek started the "eweek" with some hot news here regarding the ongoing battle between AMD and Intel on the CPU virtualization technology field while InfoWorld has a some words here about IBM chosing Opteron rather that Itanium for next blade gen. The CPU war also heat up on the judiciary front as reported in the Daily Yomiuri here where it is said that the Japanese FTC (Fair Trade Commission) is not too happy with the way Intel stopped manufacturers from using AMD's product. While the battles are raging on so many fronts, we suspect that spining off Spansion should be a smart more and Google has an increasing number of stories about that here. and finally, if like us, you're crazy about Google then you should enjoy  the new Google desktop ready for download here

- Windows 64, IBM & SUN, AMD at IDF, and more
For all those looking for a meaningful Windows 64 roadmap, Microsoft Watch has published the latest here. Soon after Dell snubbed - one more time - AMD, ZDNet  publishied here a humiliating blog where it is said that readers' interest for Dell server line is near ZERO while IBM and Sun were generating a lot of attention. One more time, AMD is spoiling Intel grand IDF mass with a counter-briefing briefly described here and a sky parade with five planes which wrote here a gentle reminder to all Intel's lovers: Turion 64 is coming and thou shall fear its wrath! The giant fight between the two chip behemoths promises to be ugly and especially in China where AMD is massively investing. With a newly built assembly line in Suzhou, AMD aims to break Intel's monopoly in the Middle Empire as explained here. With such lineup that should'nt be too hard!

- Geode NX 1500@6W, SiS, Intel slapped, etc.
Yet another Geode super economical chip just appeared in Japan and the picts are here. Running at 1GHz the NX1500 needs only 6W of fresh power to ignite some of the cutest board ever made and that's pretty cool. Cool also the lastest numbers from SiS at DigiTimes here. According to the Asian IT specialist, 50% of the last chipset maker chipment were AMD only! Obviously consumers are now aware of what is better for their daily computation! Linux Hardware is pushing even harder with a 64Bit fight between AMD and Intel that is not favorable to the later... Read and enjoy here and if you want more of this type of confrontation you might enjoy what SecureWebs has to say about Opteron here. After all this don't get surprised if Intel is getting over reactive about dual-core. CNET has an interesting blurb about it here. Now that Intel is really buzy, AMD has plenty free time for lauching new concept like OPMA and for  joining the Open BIOS celebration at the following chapels: OpenBIOS here and LinuxBIOS here. Good move!
