Posted today at Investors website. Samsung, QCOM and Taiwan Semi could ruffle through their "considerable" WAR chest to acquire GF a Summit Research analyst said Monday! Check it out, looks interesting!
ken, It is akin to arguing with a "religious freak", he certainly resembles one. Seriously, look at these Loony Tunes! They will pull the plug on themselves in a New York minute and take out everything with it-wow. I think you catch my drift. And they appear to have the same mindset over a CHIP designer! The evil AMD-oooohh-the evil AMD lol. Yes, simply put..a chip designer trying to make a solid product for consumers at a great price! Now, that is scary. How do people get this bad???
davyboy...acting stupid on purpose..as usual. The Chinese would pay more than $10 billion for GF no problem. Don't forget, these companies are not run by paid clown message board bashers, they have intelligent people who run them, something you have always lacked. Thanks for the laugh-you are always good for that much!
According to the "timesunion" website for New York news and events, here is their take on this deal: Tsinghua Group says.." CEO Zhao said that the deal could be finalized at the end of the month and he said that buying the company outright *OR* taking a majority stake would be ( "sensitive") in light of concerns the U.S. government would have", this IS something to note. Parent MuBadala may only be interested is selling a *minority* stake in addition to an outright sale of the whole company.
Sounds like GF might just be looking for some extra cash to invest in its expensive foundries during the oil crunch, but may still hold on to them with an investor for a number of reasons. None of us will know how this plays out until this Chinese company and GF come up with a statement.
"they'd absolutely tank it and average less than $1/sh selling" sounding like a paid basher again, ace. That is beyond stupid, and that is YOUR estimate price. I think you might mixed up! GF gains nothing by doing this, AMD is still a huge customer to GF. A 51% owner of all the shares gives a fund etc. controlling what the outcome is-most voting power, GF does NOT have this have this kind of interest or control of AMD. You are making ZERO sense here, me thinks you don't understand GF's parent company at all. GF is not Wall Street, stay on track here. They also don't have paid bashers running their company, thank God for that!
So, now they delete 90% of every post now? What a great message board! ybf has less than 50 post now LOL And this is a guy who post 100s garbage threads 24/7????
Ace, replies like that make you look like a paid basher against AMD. You are outright trying to act stupid. An 18% stake doesn't constitute GF selling AMD Inc.. You act like GF owns the whole company, they don't. Worst case, The buyer can dump 18% of the company, this does NOT liquidate ATI or ANY part of the company as whole to seize operations as a "terminal" ending as you say, quit being melodramatic. And what do think GF would sell it's 18% for??? You are being way over dramatic and turning this into some fantasy doom outcome. C'mom...MAN! Most likely a company like Samsung with funds would be an advantage to AMD. The only people who want AMD out of business are intel and NVDA...along with idiots like ybf and 100 fraud bashing accounts. Don't be like him. Companies ARE TIRED OF INTELS monopoly!!! They want AMD to continue solvent. Get real.
In addition to the 2 new semi custom wins...
New future consoles coming up as from MSFT and Sony in 2018 I think. Nintendo looks pretty good as well.
Ok, whatever..it's there, but the only reason you come here is to bash. Still, no one can say for sure how it will go until it happens.
NO one knows exactly how the FULL scale ramp goes until it happens. That is YOU, ME or anyone else. 4th quarter is not set in stone.
It's exactly WHAT I READ at WCC, irky. If you want to stroke yourself and your many dork IDs, go right ahead. Google is your friend, sometimes. I don't follow your trademarks.
I just read at WCC: 14LPP ramp occurring in the fourth quarter of 2015 and FULL scale production set for 2016 posted 3 weeks ago! FUDmaster Irky. Enjoy..Irky
What a bunch of dopes, bashers down voting a FACTUAL post??? The little children Can't handle the truth I see. I just Googled this and it's definitely being posted in English. Looks like the oil price in decline is causing this sell, makes sense. Fabs cost too much to upgrade and this killing intel as well.
At Anandtech posted today "There we go, it exists! Speaking to other in ARM, they are actually quite pleased that it is now in production, and they are actually quite impressed with the internal metrics they are seeing from it' How many times does the lunatic ybf have to exposed as a liar? This clown with a 100 bashing fraud accounts said they did not have the R&D to complete this! lol Just keep laughing at this paid ignorant troll. He continues to LOVE embarrassment. He's looking more stupid each and everyday. I wonder if he looks like someone that smiles like a fat lipped dude posting FUD at the Fool????
Intel pumpage is getting a little toooo deep, ace. Seriously, bashing Samsung is showing some real ignorance here. 9 out of 10 who follow semi's know about Sammy. They have tons of cash! They ARE growing faster than intel, they are a better run company than intel, their 14nm is in full mass production and doing very well at GF. They ARE catching intel and they look to surpass over time. Samsung is a CLOSE second to intel in revenue and market cap and catching them more each year. I know this pains you, but Samsung will beat intel to 10nm and beyond. You really underestimate the S. Koreans. Taiwan Semi is another Fab company that in combination with Samsung will be leaders in Fabs because they HAVE THE CASH. Intel burn rate is alarming and mounting debt. You will see. Look for AMD on 14nm next year, thanks to Samsung.
VR is the big deal here and no one can design this APU like AMD. Add in a smaller node, bingo! A cooler and more power efficient console like no other. These will sell for more$$, helping AMD's bottom line cash flow even more.
