then intel comes with the name AVX and the claim that FMA4 is better than FMA3 and they claim that they will not support FMA3.
then AMD chance the logic to AVX and FMA4 then intel cheat on amd and intel go for AVX first and in 2013 AVX+FMA3
now amd do have only 01 bin compatibility on SSE4.2 the bulldozer is not compatible with AVX and not compatible with FMA4.
in 2013 intel will bring the AVX+FMA3 and amd have to ad this to...
then in 2015 intel ad FMA4 and then in 2017 they will allow amd to make there cpus bit compatible in AVX+FMA3+FMA4
and no right now amd claim to support AVX and FMA4 but they can not because intel do not allow it!
its a AVX-AMD-only-slang and FMA4-AMD-only-slang
This type of remarks makes me less likely to read future articles.Evidently they don't care too much about Linux coverage for this less-than-stellar product launch.
Here's what Hitler has to say about it, couldn't agree with him more:
Funny stuff too , I laughed so hard.
AMD won 64bit extension battle because they had a very strong product, at least as good as Intels and they were selling it at a very competitive price thus quickly gaining market share. There were simply too many amd cpus out there for intel to ignore that. Now, with the crappy lower-end cpus that AMD makes and no one wants to buy, what the hell are they thinking proposing new instruction sets?
I can't believe it - over 1 billion new transistors for almost no benefit? What the fuck AMD?
A standardization committee for the x86 architecture would really be a great thing. It would be great for competition, but I am afraid it might be too late to save the technological development. So much shitty legacy crap is already out there, it stinks.
