Intel and AMD May Both Delay Next-Generation CPUs 193

MojoKid writes "AMD and Intel are both preparing to launch new CPU architectures between now and the end of the year, but rumors have surfaced that suggest the two companies may delay their product introductions, albeit for different reasons. Various unnamed PC manufacturers have apparently reported that Intel may push back the introduction of its Ivy Bridge processor from the end of 2011 to late Q1/early Q2 2012. Meanwhile, on the other side of the CPU pasture, there are rumors that AMD's Bulldozer might slip once again. Apparently AMD hasn't officially confirmed that it shipped its upcoming server-class Bulldozer products for revenue during August. This is possible, but seems somewhat unlikely. The CPU's anticipated launch date is close enough that the company should already know if it can launch the product."

    I don't believe the bit about 32nm is accurate. I just ordered a new laptop with an AMD A6-3400 CPU. This is a fusion based chip and is 32nm.

    As far as the performance claims regarding 6 core AMD chips, I have to agree with that. However, the cost of an Intel chip is not worth it. My 6 core AMD upgrade saved me hundreds of dollars. it still improved my starcraft 2 framerate by double over my phenom 9600 x4.

    Intel stuff is faster if you have the money. It's not fanboyism, just practical price/performance based on benchmarks.
