    just reminding the hyper pumping morons Apple iPhone 6 has NOTHING AMD inside!

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • AMD PUMPERS ARE LIARS

    Apple's next generation iPhone 6 will likely feature a 4.7 inch display panel; will be powered by an Apple A8 processor and retain the 1GB of RAM common to older iPhone models.

    Kuo, however, didn't have as much information about Apple's first phablet. What he did say was that the Apple phablet will have an A8 processor, NFC and Touch ID. The phablet's battery will be much larger and will be between 50 percent and 70 percent bigger than the current iPhone 5s battery.

    AMD Selling its MOBILE IP to Qualcomm for a Pitiful $ 65 million dollars is a EPIC Stumbling Bumbling FAIL!!!

    The $65 million deal, which was completed on Monday and has already received regulatory approval, will also help AMD focus on its core businesses of making x86 processors and high-end graphics chips, according to a joint announcement by the two companies.

    Qualcomm bought graphics and technology assets, intellectual property and other resources from AMD, and it has offered to hire chip design and development teams that were working on 2-D and 3-D graphics, display, audio and video projects at AMD. Qualcomm said it plans to integrate AMD-developed multimedia technology into its system-on-chip products.

    AMD has been struggling to compete against its much larger processor rival, Intel Corp. Last October, AMD announced a deal to spin off its foundry business as a separate company. And on Friday, the chip maker said it would eliminate another 1,100 jobs and cut salaries in order to reduce costs.

    "AMD is in trouble," said Jack Gold, an analyst at J. Gold Associates in Northboro, Mass. "They cannot compete with Intel across the board, and they have to go where they can make some money."

    Hey DELUSIONAL POS Pumper
    sharikookoo,

    NO Way NO how will iPhone have anything AMD inside!!! BECAUSE, AMD sold its Mobile Graphics IP to Qualcomm, even AMD's Mobile Graphics employees were unloaded to stay afloat.

    AMD continues to shed assets in advance of its January 22nd earnings announcement: first it was employees, and now it is mobile graphics technology. AMD announced Tuesday that it's selling its handheld GPU technology, along with some of the handheld unit's employees, to Qualcomm for $65 million.

    But, alas, there's that small matter of profitability (or, rather, lack thereof), and AMD has clearly decided that the way to stay afloat in 2009 is to pare the business down to the bare essentials—keeping the parts that are proven moneymakers, and dropping the parts that will take a while to develop into growth areas.

    From the press release: "With the sale of these handheld technology assets and resources to Qualcomm, we are better able to focus on our core business and leverage our unique position as a leader in both x86 computing and high-end graphics," said Robert J. Rivet, chief operations and administrative officer, chief financial officer of AMD. "We believe the talented AMD Handheld employees will be a great asset to Qualcomm."

    Investors don't believe anything over hyping Debt Doomed AMD pumps.

    Debt Doomed AMD and all you charlie humping FUD spewing NVDA/INTC haters have lost all cred. NOTHING that charlie and bogus benchmark pumping AMD can be trusted. AMD fled BAPco in shame, has propaganda pumped every watt sucking APU/CPU/GPU it pushed and NEVER walked the talk. AMD's CPU/APU are ALL IPC cripple and these APUs that combine AMD CPU cores and GPU cores, rely entirely on the efficiency of AMD's bottlenecking memory buses and stumbling bumbling caches.

    AMD's CPUs/APUs desperately need a GPU teet to suck on so that can hide the FACT that they are IPC cripple. AMD also needs Mantle and HSA to also help out its inferior CPU/APU.

    HSA is a OPEN STANDARD Foundation that ANYONE can use with NO Proprietary IP, Intel Nvidia Apple can use what they want from HSA and will do HSA much better than Debt Doomed IPC cripple AMD can do.

    The I.R.S. on Tuesday released guidance indicating that Bitcoins and other so-called virtual currencies that do not have the status of legal tender in any jurisdiction would be treated as property, not currency, for tax purposes.

    But the virtual currencies market is not as stable and efficient as the market for foreign currencies. Different online exchanges list different prices. While the I.R.S. says that virtual currencies users are expected to make conversion calculations in a “reasonable manner that is consistently applied,” aggressive taxpayers might shade values in their favor for tax purposes.

    From a business perspective, the most important aspect of the guidance may be buried in the plumbing. Payments made using virtual currency are now clearly subject to the same information and backup withholding requirements as other property transactions.

    Suppose you are self-employed, and you hire a virtual assistant in the Philippines to help manage your administrative tasks, and that person accepts payment in Bitcoin. Under the I.R.S. guidance, you have to obtain a taxpayer identification number from the assistant, just as if you were paying the person in dollars.

    To the extent that Bitcoin’s success depends on anonymity and on avoiding the burden of government regulation, this I.R.S. guidance is an unwelcome blow. Bitcoin users are not accustomed to telling their counterparties who they are, let alone what their Social Security number is.

    While some people may choose to ignore the I.R.S. guidance, more established digital economy merchants (like Etsy and eBay vendors) and settlement systems (like PayPal) will tend to comply.

    Bitcoin cannot thrive in the underground economy alone, and unless its users pay taxes like other grown-ups, the I.R.S. guidance virtually ensures that it will be a passing fad.

    AMD's Mantle BUSTED, AMDoomed!

    by amdoomed Mar 26, 2014 12:21 PM
    amdoomed amdoomed Mar 26, 2014 12:40 PM Flag

    AMD lays massive steaming dump with its Mantle malware, DX12 made time and money wasting Mantle OBSOLETE!

    Read the Mantle DOOMING FACTS and weep then Cry us a Amazon River you delusional AMD POS pumpers!!!

    Mantle isn't proving to be that groundbreaking. With AMD's API enabled, we only get another 5% performance out of Battlefield 4 using a Radeon R9 290X and an Intel or AMD processor. We found the same result in Thief using Intel's CPUs but AMD's benefited with up to 67% more performance by using Mantle at 2560x1600, though this is largely because AMD's POS Processors Perform POORLY in Thief to begin with.

    Meanwhile, Mantle offered little help to budget setups such as the A8-7600 and R7 260X, where you'd really appreciate a boost.

    In a way, Mantle proved some things we already knew: AMD's Bulldozer and Piledriver CPUs are inferior for gaming and DirectX 11 API processors such as the Intel Core range can push graphics cards such as the R9 290X to the limits in modern games such as BF4. Core i3 through i7 owners can hope to see a 5% boost (a few fps) with Mantle but that's not enough to recommend it over the more mature DirectX 11 API

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • AMD's Mantle BUSTED, AMDoomed!

    The above Mantle performance gains are based on what we saw when playing Battlefield 4 on the R9 290X at three resolutions across four processors. When playing at 2560x1600 and using the Core i7-4770 and A8-7600 we recorded a 9% boost while the FX-8350 and Core i3-4130 saw a 6% gain.

    For the most part, when using the R9 290X we saw less than a 10% performance gain with Mantle, 5% being more accurate.

    AMD's API has very little to offer at 2560x1600 as we saw the same 28fps when using the Core i7-4770, Core i3-4130 and FX-8350 with Mantle and DirectX 11. At 1920x1200, where we suspect most R9 280X gamers play, Mantle offered 1-2fps more performance. The biggest gains were seen at 1680x1050 where AMD CPU becomes a greater bottleneck.

    At 1920x1200 -- where we really wanted to see more performance -- the FX-8350 and Core i3-4130 were just 5% faster while the Core i7-4770 was only 2% faster with Mantle.

    The R7 260X could certainly use a performance bump but Mantle doesn't seem to help when using low-end graphics cards. There is little to be gained since all the processors tested are more than capable of keeping up with the R7 260X's max.

    That said, we didn't expect Mantle to make the R7 260X slower, but at 1680x1050 we lost up to 3fps and it was a similar story at 1920x1200, while performance was almost halved at 2560x1600 with Mantle offering 13-14fps and DX11 hitting 22fps. Mantle was slower in every case tested with the R7 260X. We first thought that maybe there was an issue with our card or perhaps there was a driver issue, but AMD's own results show the R7 260X delivering less than 3% more performance.
