The Big Secret

News Items: AMD Accidentally Sends Out PR Schedule Talk about non-news! With one possible exception (see below), could anybody give me a single good reason why any of this is such a big secret?

The China announcements are the only items that for a number of possible reasons could be sensitive, but I have my doubts even about that.

Intel? Yeah, they’re scared s**tless in Santa Clara just waiting for the ax to fall, ’cause it’s all over when the Athlon64 logo gets announced. 🙂

If AMD had a 2.5 or 3.0GHz Opteron waiting in the wings to spring on Intel this fall, now that would be something worth keeping secret. But they don’t, and Intel could have figured out a 2.0GHz was coming just from reading a few hardware sites (like that’s the only way they could find out).

I mean, really, you don’t think Intel hasn’t ripped Hammers apart and understands the technical issues and problems with Hammers just about as well as the AMD engineers, much less us?

Conclusion:

The Big Secret Is: There Is No Big Secret
