AMD Phenom Pre-Launch update

As the official launch of the AMD quad-core Opteron (Barcelona) processors in August and the desktop Phenom processors later this year draw close, AMD is rapidly ramping up media coverage of the new core architecture. You can count on more media coverage and updates on the new processors over the coming weeks.

As we have seen in the AMD Quad-Core Opteron (Barcelona) Technology Report, AMD will start with the launch of the server/workstation Quad-Core Opteron processors. These processors comes with a whole range of interesting new features. Not only will they have greater processing capability than the current Opteron processors, they will also have a new three-tier cache structure, much better power efficiency and new virtualization capabilities.

All that advanced capabilities may not be able to salvage AMD's situation though, especially since they gave Intel such a long, massive lead with the innumerable delays of the new processors. In fact, AMD still isn't able to definitively confirm when they will launch the Agena/Kuma desktop processors, only that it will be released before the end of this year. That certainly doesn't sound too encouraging.

Nonetheless, they were able to give us an update of the upcoming desktop processors. Let's start with the new branding - Phenom.

Redhot Future Of IT Part I :Marketing yourself as IT professional

I had promised about the "RedHot IT Future Series" and so we discuss here how you should market yourself EFFECTIVELY as an IT professional in this new (and dangerous) web age! Web is the place where you're a hero today and villain tomorrow. While there are lots of professionals who are active on the web, not all are enjoying a good reputation as they got "personal" with others and got into a cockfight. The passive IT professional has nothing to lose but nothing to gain at all!

I know "marketing" might seem as a greasy term but the idea is to have the truth about you out there. You know you're a good person and your family knows that you're really smart person but the rest of the world doesn't!

So the question is how do I market myself on the web as a true "nouveau IT professional". A guy who companies will be tempted to pick up the phone as say "Hey, we wanna talk with you. Can you fly over to Palo Alto (or Guatemala or Johan…
