    I wouldn't be so sure. Most people have settled on their SandyBridge or later CPUs being enough. DX12/Vulkan on the horizon promises even less CPU utilisation.

    OEMs seem to find it VERY hard to use AMD, in many cases due to volume deals with Intel.

    Unless they take off massively in servers, I can't see AMD selling a glut of them and certainty not enough to make a miraculous turn-around.

    How many here can be bothered ditching their current i5/i7 that isn't being pushed very hard? I know I would need more incentive than "It's AMD" and "Their the underdog" before I spend £400 that I don't need to (and the newest gaming CPUs I have are IvyBridge!)

    Anyone seen a Carrizo yet? Have seen one advert for an HP laptop so far, that's it.
    Seen a few A10 8700P laptops but it appears they are configured to a 15W TDP and not 35W TDP!

Prices are more affordable yet people just fork out the ever inflating Intel prices. Make profits for the shareholders its called.
    Outright performance may not be seeing big increases but performance per watt is and the form factors are improving. The drive at the moment is towards thin/light/battery...

    I really hope AMD comes out strong. They produce best priceerformance ratio.. With only one player going strong in market it will be really bad for consumers
