AMD Responds to the Sandy Bridge Bug:Marketing ramps up... but new
Posted by newsbot on February 19th 2011



The biggest potential win for AMD would have been a successfulAM3+ motherboard launch, but they still were not able to move up thatparticular product. If AMD had been able to come out swinging withthis new socket, and new motherboards designed around it, we couldvery well have seen a much more significant boost to AMD. While thereare no Bulldozer nor Llano based chips available, AM3+ boards dosupport current AM3 processors. Releasing the high end 990FX andbudget 970 boards, neither of which utilize the integrated graphics ofLlano, and populating them with current Phenom II and Athlon II CPUscould have provided a nice impetus to AMD and given the company amarketplace more prepared for the new CPUs to arrive later thisSpring.
