ARM chips to run Windows 8. Think about it. AMD, with low performance CPUs, is relegated to the lower end of the system ecosystem. That's exactly where ARM-powered Windows devices will have the most traction.
Google optimizing Andriod for Intel CPUs. AMD's last CEO lost his job because he had no mobile strategy. With Google partnering with Intel in mobile, AMD is totally locked out of that segment.
AMD can't go down because of ARM and Google/Intel mobile plays. They can't go up because of low performance compared to Intel's fast chips. Hammer and anvil.
