    (((AMD saves MILLIONS $$$$$ on chip wafer cancelation)))

    AMD cut the order from Global foundries by 1.5 BILLION chips. Sure we have to pay GF $320 million, but THAT IS FAR BETTER THAN TAKING AN ORDER FOR 1.5 BILLION CHIPS YOU DO NOT NEED!!!!!

    AMD will save a bundle in expenses in 2013. That $320 million is spread out over 5 quarters.

    Shorty FAILS to tell us this part.

    In 6 MONTHS AMD WILL BE CASH FLOW POSITIVE. Q3 2013 will show the revenue from all 3 major gaming consoles. Tablets and phones will bring in more added revenue in 2014.

    The industry's first x86 quad-core SoC was announced by AMD. It is not often we beat Intel out of being first, but every time that happens, AMD makes a killing with the OEM's.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    • Just put down the crack pipe. That's the drugs talking all that nonsense.

      AMD paid GF not once, but twice to make modifications to the wafer supply agreement. These changes in total have already cost AMD more than a half billion dollars of cold, hard cash.

      AMD hasn't saved a penny yet. Any savings would arise after AMD swallows down the half billion in expenses, which given its present predicament where it's not selling many chips (lost ASPs, lost market share, climbing inventories) it will take AMD half a decade to recoup those payments to GF.

      The reality is that AMD doesn't have years. It has months. No more than 6 to be precise. It will never realize any benefit from these changes. These were forced upon it by the Arabs who wanted to move value out of AMD and put it into more viable GF, plain and simple.

      What these payments have done near term is insure that AMD has no possibility of making the level of R&D investment it needs to make to fix its badly broken CPUs.

      AMD is dying man. Live with it.

    • Consolidation today. Back up tomorrow.

      Sentiment: Strong Buy
