First for Firepro and Radeon graphics, then after the new blockbuster Kaveri mobile/desktop APUs are introduced in eight to ten weeks (meaning they dump a lot of Intels for AMD for the entire Macbook / iMac / Mac Pro lines).
More likely, a hedge fund or private equity fund that already owns a majority of Intel stock. That way AMD could keep the Intel license agreement without any problems.
It's not impossible for a buyout, all you need is the proper contacts.
Not appl, but qualcom might be a good fit. Intel should buy amd. A deal might pass antitrust regulators now that intel has many competitors and the pc market is in decline.
sigh... every time AMD goes down, this falso rumor started to surface. read the cross license agreement between intel and amd. there won't be a buyout as long as this agreement still exist.
Sentiment: Strong Sell
