The llano APU is a terrific product and has quickly become the (my) lower power & medium performance king when compared to the Intel ION product line. My entire HTPC is 25W UNDER FULL LOAD because of llano, the thought of having that equivalent product with a bulldozer core sounds incredible. And yes, it does play HD video.

Warren, I think Maybe you're looking at the product line today. The new Bulldozer architecture is a very high throughput design and Intel does not have anything to compare to it. In tests to date the highest clocked Bulldozer on a 9xx chipset board handily beat the Core i7 extreme on an X58 chipset motherboard with no overclocking. As far as their APUs, I guess you're right because it always seems that they are just out of grasp of the market when they announce them so I'm assuming that was just a progress report to validate AMDs APU futures compared to when Dirk Meyer was in the Tech Lead at AMD.

AMD stock trading sideways (through optimistic eyes) so doesn't look like the street is real excited. Bergman seems real excited however. Almost a little too excited about the future: "don't look too awfully close at what I have here in my hand, look out there to 2012... oh, and 2013 too!"
