    The graphics portion should help AMD considerably.

    How Griffin will stand up to a Penryn chip is an open question.
    Performance would be solidly in Intel's favor, as Griffin is not significantly improved over K8.
    Griffin should be a small die, though it's still a process node behind.

    I guess we'll see how close Griffin's being engineered for lower power gets it to Penryn.


    I think the quote should be trimmed down to a few excerpts. Copying the entire article, even with credit given to the source, can rob the source site of hits. Since everything to be read is in the forum, there is no reason for users to go there.

    AMD seems to be doing well in both graphics and chipsets, but they're so far behind in CPUs it's hard to recommend their excellent platforms.

    The three power planes for Puma is quite nice, guess they aren't planning on any quad-core parts though.

    So when does Q2 end exactly? Is it the end of June?

    My last notebook was ATI/AMD and though I was somewhat frustrated by it, I like their hybrid approach here.

    That will probably be too late for me to purchase one though.
