  AMD - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
AMD later produced the 80286, or 286, under the same arrangement, but Intel cancelled the agreement in 1986, and refused to hand over technical details of the i386 part.
AMD originally designed the Opteron to compete against Intel's IA-64 Itanium architecture, but the failure of the IA-64 project to leverage volume sales means that the Opteron now competes with Intel's Xeon processor.
AMD K8L is a major revision of the AMD64 microarchitecture and hardware platform, and is due late in 2006 or early in 2007.

 Consumer Guide to Macular Degeneration
Macular degeneration, often called AMD or ARMD (age-related macular degeneration), is the leading cause of vision loss and blindness in Americans aged 65 and older.
AMD occurs with degeneration of the macula, which is the part of the retina responsible for the sharp, central vision needed to read or drive.
Dry AMD is an early stage of the disease, and may result from the aging and thinning of macular tissues, depositing of pigment in the macula, or a combination of the two processes.

 AMD: approximate minimum degree ordering   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
AMD is a set of routines for ordering a sparse matrix prior to Cholesky factorization (or for LU factorization with diagonal pivoting).
AMD is the default preordering used in MA41, by Patrick Amestoy, Iain Duff, and Chiara Puglisi.
AMD was originally based on the MA27 minimum degree ordering algorithm, by Iain Duff and John Reid, in the HSL library.

 AMD sells first 90nm CPUs - analyst | The Register
AMD has already said that it has reached its first 90nm production milestone - chips fabbed using the process began to come off the company's Dresden production lines last quarter - but actually making chips that can be sold for hard cash rather than offered to potential customers as samples is the second milestone.
Like IBM, AMD is using silicon-on-insulator (SOI) techniques but at least isn't running the risk of biting off more than it can chew by attempting to incorporate strained silicon materials too.
AMD's latest public roadmap continues to call for the delivery of 90nm Opterons - aka 'Venus', 'Troy' and 'Athens' - the 'Winchester' desktop Athlon 64 and its low-voltage mobile equivalent, 'Oakville'.

 Techware Labs - Reviews - AMD Socket 939 3800+
AMD was able to make cheaper and faster processors than its competition, in many circumstances, which drew a substantial following from the enthusiast market.
AMD knew consumers wouldn't be ready to drop their 32-bit programs and software companies to date are slow to jump onto the 64-bit bandwagon so AMD included the ability to run in 32-bit as well as 64.
AMD, not content with the success of 754 and 940, pushed further to add support for dual-channel memory, shrink its die further, and provide other assorted refinements.

AMD fanboys will be tickled to know that the chip giant saw its market share slide from 83.5 per cent in Q1 to just 82.7 per cent, down a whopping, a humungous...
The good news for AMD enthusiasts is that, at this rate of sequential gain and Intel's quarterly 0.8 percentage point decline, AMD will overtake Intel in exactly 13 years' time - sometime in Q2 2017.
AMD has done much to court PC vendors in these territories, and that will pay off further over time.

How do you spread mounts across several watched directories?] The enormous power of Amd comes from the embedded macro language supported in the map file, which allows the mount specification to be created from a list of possible matches according to the properties of the request.
Amd uses a different map format than Autofs, so you can't share maps (via NIS, for example) with other automounters which use the traditional SUN format, unless you are as clever as the author of the letter attached at the end of this note.
The maps are maintained in solaris automount format, and there's an awk script that generates amd format maps from these.

 AMD Details Early Quad-Core Plans
Going forward, AMD executives said its progress will be defined by metrics like "throughput per watts per dollars", backed by specific technologies that it will try to establish as industry standards, rather than following rival Intel's lead.
On the surface, AMD's roadmaps forward bear superficial resemblances to Intel's, in that both companies share a desire to increase the number of cores on the processor die.
"We think at AMD [the move toward platforms] is a good trend; it signals a move away from speeds and feeds…and a random grab bag of features," Meyer said.
