BAPCo fires back at AMD

Written by


Handbags at six paces
Industry consortium BAPCo is firing back at AMD over its allegations that SYSmark 2012 fails to properly represent performance.

AMD is not the only defector, as Nvidia and VIA have also decided not to endorse the new benchmark. AMD seems to be concerned about APU performance in the benchmark, while Nvidia and VIA have reasons of their own.

However, BAPCo claims that AMD was an integral part of the decision making process in the consortium and that it had voted in favour of 80 percent of SYSmark 2012 development milestones. BAPCo also dismissed AMD’s claims that it had been threatened with expulsion from the consortium if it went public with its concerns.

Although many industry heavyweights, including the likes of Dell, HP, Microsoft, Lenovo, Sony and Toshiba are still on board, it seems that SYSmark 2012 really won’t be as relevant in the CPU department. Apparently it will be a good tool to compare Intel processors... to other Intel processors.

or maybe amd just fails with they cpu's liek always,and they know that if they fail with bobdozzer basically they cpu business was gone? Maybe thats why bobdozzer was delayed 4 times already?
And no point to even release them,they generations behind,amd should start work on bobdozzer fail nr.2 LOL
What a fail company really amd is,they bought good company back then ati,so they can survive,now amd made ati look stupid also.
Awaiting dan-fagtroll idiotic post :D

The remaining 20 percent were the ones that were aimed against incorrect benchmarking.

The remaining 20 percent were the ones that were aimed against incorrect benchmarking (the ones that favoured one particular vendor).

Sysmark is Intel's favorite benchmark tool... :-*

Indeed they are the fastest but how about the coding??? was it fair to all platforms??? 8)

BAPCO should answer that...

Another good reason for amd to dump bapco...

You have to love mindless trolls. The simple fact is that Intel's Core 2 and iX (3,5,7,9) processors would have never existed if AMD didn't come into the picture. Intel has taken designs and concepts from AMD for years (Int Mem Controller, x64, monolithic die, GPU+CPU). Without AMD you would be left with a $2000 CPU that is better off a paper weight.

Nicely said Nonameman. Latching onto the pricing comment, people forget that these so called reviews always compare £600+ intel CPU's with AMD's £200 nearest equivalents. Hardly a fair comparison!
The x64 processor is cross-licensed to intel by AMD cause they invented it. If AMD hadn't been poking around we'd all be stuck with lousy 3.5Gb memory restrictions and pentium single cores.
