Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) stock closed up 8.87% to $9.45 on Tuesday following reports that the global semiconductor company inked a licensing deal with rival technology firm Intel (INTC) . Advanced Micro is reportedly licensing its Radeon graphics processing unit for use in Intel's next generation of CPUs, Investors Business Daily reports. Intel currently holds a license for chipmaker Nvidia's (NVDA) technology, but that deal is set to expire in March. Although the Intel deal has not yet been confirmed, Advanced Micro Devices did tie up an extended three-year strategic partnership with software company Mentor Graphics (MENT) on Monday which will expand their agreement to create an embedded software ecosystem.
