i dont see any other option, anyways thats up to the creative guys on wall street to figure out. im sure they will come up with something. it will be interesting to see what it is. lol
First off buyout rumors should be thrown out the window because they borrow massive amount of cash to buy a comapny with low debt & high cash flow which amd does not consist any of those 2 criteria.
Will need a better gimmick than that. Its widely known that AMD would loose its license to produce x86 compatible products if there's a change in control of the company.Same reason why AMD can't allow bondholders to convert to equity in an amount that could trigger change of control.With no X86 license, AMD becomes what ATI was, a second tier graphics company.
