Re: Thinking of Bulldozer CPU For Mame?....Dont Bother.

Can you tell me where you are reading this? Because I'd be very interested in reading it as well. Thanks.

FWIW I think that x86 has already peaked. The shrinking of the staid desktop PC market in relation to the overall computing market will mean that it will not be profitable to spend the exponentially increasing research dollars necessary to advance the state of the art in x86. Simply put, x86 will get cheaper but will increase in speed at an ever decreasing rate in coming years. It's already happening as far as I can tell. Additionally, for 99% of the tasks that x86 CPUs are typically tasked with, there is no advantage to being faster. We're asymptotically approaching the point where x86 is fast enough for everyone in all circumstances.

As much as I like AMD (although I happily buy the best solution and have owned x86 CPUs from AMD, Intel, Cyrix, IBM, even NexGen back in the day) I don't think that the x86 market will have room for two x86 manufacturers in the future, and AMD will be the odd man out.
