In the aftermath of Intel's Core i7 processor launch, everyone wants to know: what's AMD going to do to compete? This week on the TR podcast, we examine a flurry of news fresh from AMD's Financial Analyst Day presentation in order to answer that question. Future desktop and mobile processors, foundry spinoff plans, and even an overview of how Radeon GPUs are doing in the marketplacewe cover it all.
After our AMD news marathon, Geoff gets very practical with his unruly Eee PC shift key, and our panel reveals what's on their DVRs for this new season of TV shows. Our favorites include: The Office, Fringe, Top Gear, The Sarah Connor Chronicles, and a few others. As always, our show finishes with a sneak peek at what's coming up on the site and our podcast.

What about bulldozer? (0:31:13) - from Anonymous:
" What is the state of AMD's upcoming desktop core 'Bulldozer' and derivatives? Since announcing it in 2007 for 2009, AMD has been very quiet about even its existence. There have even been leaked roadmaps showing K10-based products through late 2010. Seeing as AMD's current K10s aren't that competitive now, I don't think K10 could survive at all against Intel's Sandy Bridge architecture also expected in 2010. Will Bulldozer will be AMD's next core, and when do you think a new core will be delivered?"
