    There's a press release here that describes AMD's latest family of CPUs - The Fusion APU.

    Does anyone even buy AMD anymore? I dont know anyone who seriously considered purchasing one since the Centrino line went live (well Napa and Santa Rosa)...

    For their carpc? probably not many anymore. Maybe we'll see some mini-itx boards with AMD come out this year. Competition is always a good thing.

    As for the desktop, Intel dominates, but AMD has a loyal following and are the 'value' buy in most cases.

    I use an amd in my carpc. I have a couple of reasons. there cheaper and they don't change the socket size nearly as much as intel does. I have a Athlon II X2 240e. If for some reason later the processor can't keep up with me (which I really doubt), but I could upgrade it very easy bc it uses a am3 socket. The motherboards are also cheaper for amd generally speaking.

    btw for my desktop i have intel i7 for performance and don't think i'd ever go with amd for my main pc unless some how they surpass intel.

    AMD all the way
    price to performance=AMD
    performance to rape=INTEL

    i do like both though but intel is just overpriced

    youll be laughing at this statement by the end of summer. this spring the first motherboards and netbooks are coming to market with the fusion architecture. much faster cpu then atom, significantly lower power consumption at idle, and graphics that are even better to match.

    1080p playback, gaming capability, usb3, passive cooling, hdmi etc for lower prices then atom gear. its going to be a game changer because we will finally have full-capability netbooks for under $500.

    the fusion cpu is perfect for so many things it will dominate the low-watt market. htpc's, carpc's, tablets, netbooks and servers will all benefit from fusion in one way or another. well see what intel responds with, but so far it looks like it wont be until next year anyway.

    In addition, the APU also packs an integrated GPU, the Radeon HD 6310 graphics core to be more exact, that features 80 stream processors operating at 500MHz as well as the UVD3 media engine that is capable of Full HD, 1080p, video playback.

    Unlike other manufacturers, when it built its Brazos platform, Asus decided to take a more feature rich approach and added both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity to its motherboard as well as an impressive array of USB ports (four USB 3.0 and eight USB 2.0).

    In addition, the board carries five SATA 6Gbps ports, one eSATA connector, a PCI-Express 16x slot, two DDR3 1333MHz memory slots and HDMI 1.3b and dual-link DVI-I video outputs.

    I'd be more then happy with something like that for a portable media player to use at home and well traveling.

    edit: The PS3 makes a pretty good media center as well though.

    That Asus board is beautiful... and it looks like a very capable passive heatsink for once.

    For my car PC... Intel. Only cause no one else made anything decent, until now i guess. But For everything else... AMD. AMD handles large single programs with large quantities on info better. As a renderer I can see the difference when all things equal, trying to maneuver through a space made of a couple million polygons in 3ds with an AMD vs an Intel.

    But I don;t think anyone should try rendering anything on they're carpc while driving... that would be
