AMD, short for advanced micro devices.

Creators of the lines of Duron and Athlon processors. Designed with IPC in mind, substituting clockspeed for performance. In lateral terms, the ratio beween clock speed and performance is rather amazing on an Athlon CPU.

- AMD is also known to make flash memory products.

AMD processors work on the concept of slow processor clock, but high performance. a heart that beats slower is better than one that beats faster because the slower heart pumps more blood each beat and does not tire tiself.

A computer chip manufacturer known for their CPUs and Radeon graphics cards. The last time they had a decent market share in either was over ten years ago. Shame, but hey, that hasn't stopped them from trying again and again, year after year. But consumers won't stop choosing Intel and Nvidia instead...

Let's have a moment of silence for the Red Team...
In the year 2030, when Intel, Facebook and Microsoft have dissolved the world's governments and now rule the planet in an uneasy alliance...

Grandpa; "I used to have an AMD Ryzen 7 8-core CPU when I was your age lad, but alas, the red team was defeated in the end"

Grandson; "Hah! Only eight cores? No wonder they died out!"

By far the best cpu on the planet. It benchmarks better than the Intel P4 and is about 200 dollars cheaper. Plus they dont have to make lame ass comercials to sell their product.

AMD is intel's competitor and makes x86 cpu's.
Their K7 cpu's (athlon, (pentium 3 killer), duron (celeron killer), athlon XP (p4 killer, 'cept for the 3200+), and athlon MP (xeon killer)) and their new chips, the K8 cpu's (the superfast AMD Athlon FX (P4 HT emergency edition killer), athlon64 (was more lethal to the p4 than the athlon XP), and opteron (itanium killer))
the reason that these chips can smoke equivalently-clocked p4's is becuase of the chip's very efficient architecture. the athlonxp uses a pipeline only about half as deep as the p4, making it more efficient because instructions do not take as long to be processed. K8 chips have a slightly deeper pipeline than the K7's.
"i got an amd chip 'cause i didnt want to go hungry for a year 'cause p4's are so friggin expensive"
"p4's are overpriced... imma grab an athlonxp... same performance if not better for half the price"

A-M-D

The best architexually designed CPU's. Ever.

20-50% more effiecnt at the SAME clock speeds as that of the latest Intel P4 CPUS
"you have an AMD ?? WOW! your so cool !"

A shortened name for the CPU company Advanced Micro Devices. Focussed on the best price per dollar, their processors are weaker than Intel processors, but are also much cheaper.
Intel's cheapest non-OEM Quad Core CPU: $149.99

AMD's cheapest non-OEM Quad Core CPU: $90.99
