What is the point ?
They would if they could, but a private equity buyout is a change in control just like a merger or buyout would be.
Change in control terminates the Intel x86 license and triggers a cooling off period of one year, after which Intel can sue to stop the new company from selling x86 practicing Intel patents.
90% of AMD's paltry revenues still depend directly on borrowed Intel x86 technology. There's really nothing to sell or take private, as a result.
AMD leased 64 to them so what is your point, all of Intel 64's in x86 borrow from AMD.
So what if AMD sues not to allow x86 64 bit and have Intel redo their own.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
