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.
Ditto. My next upgrade is still with Intel. Come on AMD. I will still buy its video cards though for now...

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.
