    first good news in the last year from AMD (CPU division). It looks like AMD understood that you cannot stay "on line" without good engineering force in your company. Let's hope that we will see some improvements.

    They just anounce 2 weeks ago that they release 1400 people but on the same time new engineers are recruted as warm bread.

    I really do not understand what the new CEO have in his head. Let's hope for surprises.

    Keep goin' AMD.....:3eyes:....don't let me down again.

    Project WIN just sounds like fail. Not saying it won't succeed, but with a name like that, they have to fail, just for the epicness of the memes to come. For the community they should fail.

    Still, abit late to bring in high quality Engineers. What, did you expect you could make up quantity over quality and beat Intel?

    :p

    Intel has both quantity & quality...can't really beat them in quantity, so AMD should try for quality, they might be able to do something if they really try.

    They want SoC engineers so they can go after the mobile market....

    though if you read the job description, they talk about client and server microprocessors. I think they might be misappropriating the term "SoC".

    I think they should build toilet seats instead of CPU's. It seems as AMD has been run by crab people in the last 5 years +. I meat WTF!? I built a lot of stuff and i still do but with enaugh funding, expertise, and research i could have gone to Mars till now (with human that is). If they FAIL again there wont be many FAILS left to FAIL.

    Seeing as how AMD likes to design for the server/workstation market and "adjust" the designs for the desktop market. Maybe they've decided to switch to an SoC approach for their future processors. Their Fusion processors are headed in that direction anyway. Experienced SoC engineers should be good at designs that manage to be power efficient while performing well.

    Do you like $1000 entry level CPU's????? If not then hope what they do is WIN. Intel needs competition to move foward at a good price point and AMD needs to make a product that clocks intel in the proverbial jaw so they don't get out of hand.
