It's nearly the end of February and I have been remiss in posting. It's been a busy month, along with a flu bug and some weekend trips.

I'll be catching up on all the action soon.

The most interesting news so far in 2008 has been the surprising Isiah processor from VIA and I really want to know more about Sun's Rock. AMD and Intel have been a bit boring of late, although some details of Intel's Silverthorne deserve further exploration (especially if it's evidence of Intel going backward on processor design). Remember folks, just because Intel has executed well over the last 2 years is not a guarantee that they will continue to execute. Nehalem has a lot of potential to go off the track (big die, new interface, complicating the microarchitecture, new on-die memory controller, etc.)
