I would love for AMD to take the performance crown from Intel like they did early 2000's with the Athlon. It would be great for a consumer standpoint for Intel to have real competition.

That said I don't know if I could trust AMD claims after all the hype around the Bulldozer and the APU which both sort of flop and plagued with issues.

They're looking for a 15% improvement over Piledriver, which is supposed to be a 10-15% improvement over Bulldozer. That doesn't really put them competitive with Intel. It might keep them from getting completely crushed, though.

The Trinity APUs (with Piledriver cores, I think?) are supposed to be pretty good for mobile, though.
