5761796E65: Yager has missed big before:

The article you linked is just one of many. I'm surprised anyone still takes him seriously, at least where AMD is concerned.

I once took the time to research many of his past articles that had to do with AMD and as I recall the last time he came close was predicting Opteron would be a winner, hardly an epiphany as most who followed AMD were saying the same thing.

It's difficult to select a particular quote that best represents his track record but this one probably comes close.

Tom Yager: If you think that 2006 put Intel ahead of AMD in any measure but hype, it's my job to tell you that you're mistaken.
