......Samsung would be a dangerous rival, but it would take a while before it got itself established. Intel might do well to consider it. Of course Samsung might buy AMD which could sweeten that deal for Intel.....
On good news AMD always is manipulated down only to extract any logic and to upset potential small Investors and small stock holders.
Later on no news AMD makes a 10% jump leaving behind a lot of head scratching astonished people.
Besides the AMD mobile FirePro Dell wins you also can't find this news at Yahoo AMD Headlines.
There you only can read why you shouldn't buy AMD and there aere still no official news that Intel can't deliver Skylake !
Availability of intel Skylake is worsening much more now !
In the new quarter availability of intel Skylake has been said to improve significantly but it is getting worser and worser!
No Core i7-6700K and even no i3 in sight ! Rumors are that intel fabs have abysmal yield problems ! LOL !
A broken process can't be solved like former intel paper launches !
Don't worry AMD will help all OEMs in this intel crisis !
Reality tells who is the dope !
computerbase always is ahead of common available news !
I the new Quarter availability of intel Skylake has been said to improve but it is getting worser and worser!

AMD may help out to satify the customers needs !
FirePro W7170M, FirePro W5170M, FirePro M5130M
17" DELL Precision 7710 with FirePro W7170M or FirePro W5170M
15" Dell 7510 with FirePro W5170M
15" Dell Precision 3510 with FirePro M5130M
Always when AMD has some good news to report there is a basher mass attack like green, sean and others !
In combination with bribing OEMs and retailers it did somehow work in the past for competitors !
AMD now fighting for survival should come out with a real strategy !
but SONY PS4 has it's own SONY VR-Headset !
Who did tell Facbook that MS is supporting the wrong XBox One hardware?
I know the two companies! LOL !
Now we know that a lot of companies want to buy AMD or at least a small stake but AMD doesn't give itself away for "FREE" like it did with HBM.
It seems AMD did learn a bit from my HBM protest note. :)
at kitguru (Oculus VR’s partner for the program definitely is AMD)
"Oculus VR claims that in a bid to play current-generation games with Oculus VR head mounted display (HMD), one needs to have a PC with a quad-core Intel Core i5 “Haswell” processor, an AMD Radeon R9 290-series or an Nvidia GeForce GTX 970 graphics adapter, 8GB of dynamic random access memory and a large-capacity storage device. Given rather moderate specifications of such PCs, it is highly likely that virtually all modern gaming systems can carry the “Oculus Ready” sticker.
Oculus VR’s partners for the program are Asustek Computer, Alienware, AMD, Dell, Intel and Nvidia. Initially, “Oculus Ready” personal computers will be available only from Asus, Alienware or Dell. Eventually the program may gain additional supporters."
The bad press wants to let this look like an intel strategy to earn more money ! LOL !
no doubt because the press is making this story at fudzilla:
"Intel slowed PC sales to increase Skylake's Price"
..... PC makers mainly build their systems on Skylakes and since the supply is low the price is high. Intel does not have to discount to shift the technology, the suppliers have to buy it at any price. Particularly as Intel's only real x86 market, AMD, is having a bit of a snooze.....
"SK Hynix and Samsung Electronics are planning to mass produce second-gen High Bandwidth Memory (HBM) for Nvidia's Pascal GPU."
And what is this ?
I still don't understand that nvidia is profiting from AMD/Hynix development !!!
....While a micro-architecture is crucially important for success of multiple generations of products, relatively small groups of people design it. Moreover, it does not take too long to create a modern CPU micro-architecture on a high-level. What does take a long time is implementation of actual hardware blocks inside processor cores (instruction fetchers/decoders, schedulers, arithmetic logic units, floating point units, etc.), development of various “un-core” components (pre-fetchers, internal interconnections, caches, memory controllers, interfaces, etc.), design and implementation of actual chips based on the architecture and hardware blocks. As a result, CPUs that are sold today are powered by micro-architectures developed many years ago.
“Architecture decisions are many years in advance of products,” explained the representative for AMD. “As you may remember, he was a primary architect on K8. We launched that product in 2003 and he had left AMD in 1999.”
The development of “Zen” (znver1) and “Zen+” (znver2) micro-architectures – which AMD has disclosed – has been completed a long time ago. At this point Mr. Keller’s CPU architecture design team may be finalizing the third iteration of Zen (znver3) or starting high-level design of the fourth iteration of Zen (znver4). Development of the “K12” and the “K12+” micro-architectures, which share a lot of innovations with “Zen”, has been finished too. It is highly likely that the departure of Mr. Keller will not significantly affect AMD’s products due in 2016 – 2018.....
Maybe Keller will join AMD again in a couple of years for a new micro-architecture
Buyout? Keller doesn't want to work for APPLE again ?
or Intel or Microsoft ?
