Should note: AMD has denied the rumor and S/A has posted as such, though this could just be damage control to--once again--keep the stock from completely sinking. AMD cancelling this turd architecture would be one of the more logical moves their CPU division has made in the past few years if true, and possibly a step in the right direction from this black mark era.
The world wasn't ready for this arch and AMD should've known better than to play market manipulator, as they simply don't possess the marketshare to affect it in the same way Intel does.
I say, "good riddance Faildozer, we hardly knew ye and I'm damn glad your old, decrepit ass is coming to an end."
