  • AMD (AMD) Target Slashed to $2 at Credit Suisse Post Q4
    You Better Fear the Reaper, Debt Hobbled AMD is DOOMED!

    Investors dodging a falling knife will be cut, don't let the dead cat bounce fool you and don't listen to the paid AMD pumpers. You better Fear the 'Reaper'.

    Credit Rating will be DOWNGRADED, Margins will Plummet, Management Cut, R&D Budget Busted, Maxwell, Haswell and Skylake will take MASSIVE Market Share, Debt Laden AMD headed to BK.

    Credit Suisse J. Pitzer reiterated an Underperform rating while cutting his price target on AMD (NASDAQ: AMD) to $2.00 (from $3.00) following Q4 results which missed the Street and guidance that was below the consensus.

    Pitzer said, "While AMD continues to manage expenses admirably - OpEx declined ~11% y/y in 2014 and ~55% from its peak in C1Q08 - we continue to struggle with unfavorable structural headwinds: (1) Gaming likely peaked in 2014, (2) advantages of HSA still unclear and 2 semi-custom designs unlikely to ramp before 2016 (~$300m/year), (3) share loss in core PCs -AMD computing rev was down $370m y/y in 2H14 or ~10-15m units and (4) AMD is quickly loosing scale with a less defined Moore's Law road-map and an R&D budget down 50% since 2008 and 1/10 of INTC's."

    The firm is lowering CY15 EPS (excl options) to $0.00 from $0.16 and initiating a CY16 EPS of $0.16.

    BOOM, AMD FUD Busted by the Facts AGAIN, these paid propaganda pumping liars absolutely have NO CRED, they're here to flood this investment board with FUD desperately trying to hide the Facts from investors.

    I Hate all these board infesting paid to pump parasites and Love the Fact Finding FUD Busters that bust the pumpers balls with the cold hard Facts. AMD is forced to give it away because their inferior products can't compete. AMD needs to go RIP ASAP its trying to drag the semi industry down into the meager margin gutter. Debt laden AMD is a margin sucking parasite that need to be toe tagged and buried for the semi industry to be healthy, Maxwell, Broadwell, Skylake, Qualcomm, AppliedMicro and many more well ARMed Armies will make sure that happens in 2015.

  • AMD FUD Spewers Stop Lying & Start Crying G-Sync Enables Higher FPS, G-Sync HAS NO 40 FPS CAP

    stockguyy79, Nicobootyboy is a Fact-less FUD Fling LIAR!

    G-Sync is a technology that enables Higher Framerates Per Second (FPS) without causing the usual “tears” visible on the screen. With G-Sync you can now use the Maximum Framerate of your monitor some go as high as 144Hz or 144 FPS while still getting a tear-free image depending on the monitor capabilities.

    Let’s shed G-Sync light on the tearing problem, it was often assumed by the OS/API/Driver that monitors had a fixed frequency. They vary, but 60HZ or 70Hz are quite common values. Because these values are a lowest common denominator, a higher performing frequency would basically be ignored and your monitor would be under-utilized basically. G-Sync can talk directly to the monitor and figure out what the maximum frequency is, and use all its FPS capability, G-Sync has NO CAP.

    Normally, graphics rendering is synchronized with the display refresh so that the monitor shows one image per frame that's its refresh cycle. It's possible for the rendering to go faster than the screen refresh by disabling the Vertical Synchronization (V-sync, or Vertical Sync). What happens then is that while the monitor is displaying a frame, the rendering changes from underneath it, resulting in what’s called “tearing”.

    G-Sync Raises the ceiling for the maximum vertical sync speed, thus enabling faster FPS, without visible tearing. Your monitor is used at its maximum potential, while avoiding any artifacts.

    Nvidia makes money selling its G-sync module to mfg, AMD makes No money on Freebie Freesync which is a open Video Electronics Association Standard called Adaptive-Sync and its up to the monitor mfg to build their own scalers modules so its not entirely free, I wonder if they're using Nvidia IP, Nvdia lawyers will be ready and waiting.

    I call BS, you have no Facts to back up your FUD.

    With G-Sync, Nvidia created the scaler and sold it the monitor mfg. Adaptive Sync/Freesync requires monitor mfg to build their own scalers, 35fps and up look great on GSync now, we will see how Adaptive Sync/Freesync hold up later.

    Nvidia makes money on a scaler (G-Sync) product they designed and sell, AMD makes no money, Adaptive Sync can be supported by anyone it would be easy for Nvidia to support without paying AMD anything, GSync is a Nvidia product that owns 70% of a AIB market that AMD will never support.

    G-Sync is proven to work great, as of yet Adaptive Sync has not been, we need comparison tests, not FUD from delusional AMDroids.

    Its a money making Win Win for Nvidia and not for AMD.

    The Fact is AMD leaving NYSE is because in 2015 it would fall below the NYSE $5 Billion revenue requirement, so AMD had to run and hide in NASDAQ.

    AMD's earnings are already dangerously close to $5 Billion revenue requirement, the S&P had cut AMD's rating to B minus but AMD future looks to be even worse, Broadwell, Maxwell, and Skylake will be ripping huge market share from debt laden AMD. AMD's revenue trajectory is headed down, AMD knows this and that's why AMD ran to NASQAQ, kinda like when AMD knew it couldn't compete with Intel anymore and ran from BAPCo.

    Its a Fact, AMD's earnings trajectory will fall below $5 Billion and trigger a S&P Downgrade Rating forcing NYSE to kick AMD out. In other words better run and hide in NASDAQ now than get kick out by NYSE later.

  • I had to look up some old Facts, I got the name of the article right this time, and its a very good read indeed.
    Dear Delusional AMDroids Stop Flinging FUD, Time to Face the x86 64 Bit Facts

    It's a Fact that x86 is so old that Intel has no patents to x86 ISA they expired long ago, but the addition of new and evolving instruction set are still Intel's IP. Anyone today can an design and mfg a x86 ISA 32 bit processor license and royalty free using original ISA but it's useless without the many new extensions MMX, SSE, SSE2, 3DNow and so on.

    AMD owns its 64 bit implementation but AMD's 64 bit instruction set requires 32 bit backward compatibility. Also 64 bit x86 is integer units only, AMD's ISA is not unique, the (FPU) floating point unit or SIMD units are Intel's patents and IP.

    Intel Did Not license the x86 64 bit from AMD, Intel instead Reverse Engineered x86 64 bit, read, "Microprocessor Reports", its a good read, the article, "AMD and Intel Harmonize on 64" can be found in the March 29th edition of In-Stat/MDR's Microprocessor Report
    Intel will never pay AMD for any x86/64 Bit IP and when AMD goes BK Intel will own all x86, there are also other requirements AMD has to meet and keep.

    The only ones who think its cool and making a big deal of this are you delusional AMDroids who refuse to face the Fact AMD gets Nothing from its 64 bit implementation of x86, No license or royalty fees. Its a Fact that Intel reversed engineered 64 bit, so Stop arguing with the Facts and making a fact-less moron outta yourself and Google it then shut the hell up.

  • Advanced Micro Devices’ semiconductor revenue slipped more than 9 percent last year, according to a new report.The chipmaker’s 2014 revenue of $4.67 billion was down from $5.14 billion the previous year, according to research firm Gartner.
    It also ranked 15th in market share at 1.4 percent, down from 11th in 2013.
    Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMD) is sitting out the broad-market rally, off 1.9% this afternoon to trade at $2.58. Meanwhile, one options trader placed an ambitious downside bet on the stock.

    AMD puts are changing hands at nearly 40 times the usual intraday pace, and most of this can be traced to a 100,000-contract block that crossed at the July 2.50 strike. According to Trade-Alert, this transaction is the biggest of the year, and the contracts were bought to open for an initial cash outlay of $3.5 million (100,000 contracts * $0.35 premium * 100 shares per contract). This represents the speculator's maximum risk, should AMD settle at or above the strike at July options expiration. On the flip side, the put buyer will profit on a move down to zero in the underlying.

    Today's preference for purchasing puts is more of the same for AMD. The stock's 10-day put/call volume ratio across the International Securities Exchange (ISE), Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE), and NASDAQ OMX PHLX (PHLX) is 1.14, which ranks in the bearishly skewed 87th percentile of its annual range.

    This negativity shouldn't be surprising, as Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMD) is a long-term technical laggard. Year-over-year, the shares have swallowed a loss of more than 38%.

    Mighty Maxwell Tegra X1 DOMINATES, AMD DOOMED!

    CES 2015 NVIDIA has kicked off CES with a “day zero” press conference at which it revealed its new Tegra X1 CPU and a platform to build autonomous cars.

    The new silicon features the Maxwell graphics engine, juiced up with eight CPU cores and 256 GPU cores, all available while consuming just ten watts. Formerly known as “Project Erista”, the Tegra X1 is said to possess a teraflop of computing power.

    NVIDIA thinks the chip may find a home in some mobile devices but also launched Drive CX, an in-car computer with a Tegra X1 on board.

    The company's CEO Jen-Hsun Huang mentioned research suggesting the number of screens in cars will soar between now and 2020, when about 20 megapixels worth of display will be found behind the wheel. Huang said he expects mirrors could eventually become smart displays and pillars could house curved displays to create an illusion of transparency.

    Whatever the future holds, Huang wants to be there: the Drive CX is therefore accompanied by a runtime called Drive Studio that will allow developers to create virtual machines that run on a Drive CX and take care of different tasks.

    A demo showed off a dashboard and in-car entertainment system, each running in their own virtual machine in a single Drive CX.

    The Tegra X1 can already drive to 4K displays at 60 hertz, or four full HD screens, and Huang feels that's enough grunt to give auto-makers reasons to get excited about NVIDIA's offerings.

    Huang's also betting that Tegra X1's grunt will help to make cameras, rather than sensor technologies like radar, car-makers' preferred method for helping cars to detect events on the road.

    How Powerful is Mighty Maxwell?

    Try a teraflop worth of raw computing muscle. NVIDIA just announced the Tegra X1 "mobile super chip" -- and yah, it's sort of fast. The X1 is the first mobile chip to achieve a teraflop of computing power, co-founder and CEO Jen-Hsun Huang said on stage at NVIDIA's CES press conference tonight. That makes it just as fast as the world's fastest supercomputer in 2000. It's basically the same Maxwell GPU architecture for PCs, which the company announced several months ago, brought to mobile. Tegra X1 packs in an eight-core 64-bit CPU and 256 GPU cores. Altogether, it should deliver around twice the performance of last year's Tegra K1 mobile chip.

    To prove just how capable the X1 can be, Huang showed the Unreal Engine 4 "Elemental" demo running off of the chip (it's unclear if it was in real time or just a recording). That's a graphically complex 3D scene that's been used to show off the rising computational capability of video cards and consoles over the past few years. While the demo didn't look perfect on the X1 -- it wasn't as detailed as I remember it; there weren't as many particle effects; and there was quite a bit of slowdown -- it was still impressive for something mobile.

    Of course, since the X1 is something meant for smartphones and tablets, power efficiency is key. Huang pointed out that it was able to run the Elemental demo using just 10 watts of power. A year ago, the Xbox One needed 100 watts to run Elemental. And over two years ago, a leading Nvidia GPU had to burn 300 watts to run it. You won't be stressing your phone with complicated 3D rendering all of the time, but the X1's performance in this demo is a good sign that it could be more efficient at more mundane mobile tasks.

    Run AMDroid RUN, Mobile Maxwell is coming to take it away, Hide AMDroid HIDE, Broadwell is coming to take it away, cry AMDroid CRY, Skylake is coming to take it away! AMD DOOMED

    Tests with the X1 show it performing at just about twice the rate of the Tegra K1 when it comes to 1080p offscreen performance, about 1.5x in 3Dmark 1.3 Icestorm Unlimited and almost twice the iPad Air 2 in the same metric, and about 1.5x in the BasemarkX 1.1 vs. both iPad and K1. But perhaps its most impressive performance improvements over comparable chipsets revolve around energy efficiency: The X1 offers about twice the performance as you increase power draw vs. the K1 architecture, and about 1.7x the performance of the A8X on average for the same power consumption.

    The work that Nvidia is doing on mobile graphics and chipsets has tremendous impact in terms of potential for Netflix, as well as other content providers that are pushing the boundaries with streaming 4K video. 60fps is especially important to action and sports content, and to video games of course. But being able to playback video at that resolution has benefits for emerging technologies, like virtual reality, which can improve dramatically by playing ever-higher resolution at speeds that offer smooth and seamless framerates for up-close and personal viewing.

  • 20nm Mobile Maxwell To Take Massive ,Tablets, Smart TVs, High-­End Smartphones Market Share!

    LAS VEGAS—Nvidia today announced the Tegra X1, a new processor for cars, tablets, and connected devices with the most powerful GPU we've seen in a mobile chip yet.

    The X1's graphics processor is so speedy that it provides 1.7 times the performance of Apple's A8x chip, found in the iPad Air 2. Until now, the A8x had the best GPU of any current mobile chipset.

    On GFXBenchmark, our favorite graphics benchmark, the X1 scored 54.7fps on the Manhattan test and 65.8fps on the Manhattan Offscreen test. The Google Nexus 9, with Nvidia's previous K1 chip, scored 22.6 and 31.7. The Apple iPhone 6, with the A8 processor, scored 30 and 17.7. (Pay more attention to that second number, as it isn't affected by screen resolution.)

    The key is Maxwell, Nvidia's new 256­core graphics processor design. Maxwell came out for desktop PCs late last year. The X1 brings it to mobile devices in part by shrinking it to 20nm from the 28nm process we saw in the desktop graphics cards.

    A side-by-side demo of what the Tegra X1 can handle vs. the competition revealed that it can output to 4K capable displays at a buttery smooth 60fps, which makes 30 seem almost staccato by comparison. Of course, this means having a 4K, 60fps source to begin with, which isn’t currently that easy to come by – recently-introduced devices, including the GoPro Hero 4 Black, which shoots at exactly that resolution and framerate, mean we’ll probably have a lot more content coming soon to make that more relevant to a wider swath of the population.
