The gaming market allows AMD to demonstrate the outer limits of how its CPU and GPU technologies perform, especially compared with Intel and Nvidia. AMD provided a sneak preview of its AMD 790GX chip set for gaming PCs that use the ATI CrossFire X graphics technology. This machine also utilized a quad-core Phenom 9550 Black Edition chip running at 2.6GHz.

After struggling to bring new desktop and server processors onto the market, Advanced Micro Devices is looking to focus on two key areas that have served the company well in the past: laptops and gaming PCs. eWEEK got a sneak peak at some of the notebooks and gaming systems built around AMD's new mobile platform and ATI graphics line, which should help AMD compete against Intel.
