FWIW, I did not think that there was a "no verb" problem in the original
sentence, and I understood what it meant just fine. If I wanted to make
it perfectly grammatical, I would have said something like "from nothing
other than its signature" (in addition to, yes, re-grouping "AMD's CPUs
of Family 6" in one of several ways), but I do not consider that to be
strictly necessary since this is comprehensible; these aren't user-level
For that matter, I don't see either how the original sentence has a
"second part" or how the suggested alternative adds a verb... other than
the re-grouping, it looks to me like you've merely replaced the word
"only" with the (near-synonymous in this context) word "just". Anyone
who's followed this better care to enlighten me?
Warning: Simply because I argue an issue does not mean I agree with any
side of it.
Secrecy is the beginning of tyranny.
