Bends over and spreads cheeks for a Wall Street reaming.
Longs doomed - looking at sub-$2 share price by year end.
It would take TWENTY of AMD's top of the line quad-core APUs to match the CPU performance of Intel's latest 8-core CPU. In doing so, those twenty AMD quad-core APUs would consume more than 50x as much energy.
AMD technology is garbage. AMD is going down hard, like ruckpral on his boyfriend nico.
Dwindling supplies of lube and fan boys with ripped, torn and gaping puckerholes?
Up a whole penny! Woo-hoo!
Oh, wait. Intel was up 16 pennies; 16x more than AMD was up today.
I guess AMD really does suck.
Up a penny. But then again, a penny when your share price is in the low single digits looks like real money.
Now that you mention it, AMD struggling to stay alive against Intel or nVidia does look a lot like Brasil facing Germany in the 2014 World Cup.
And at 3x to 4x the performance, the Intel chip is easily worth 3x to 4x the AMD chip, making $500 a bargain by comparison!
Not only is the Core i7 CPU between 3x and 4x faster than Kaveri, depending on taks, Intel's integrated graphics are 20% faster too!
AMD has no moat.
It has 20% market share to nVidia's 80%.
It has 12% market share to Intel's 88%.
AMD loses to the competition in every segment in which it participates.
Maybe AMD fell off the wall into the moat.
It'd be a waste of cash.
Samsung has no use for AMD either. It's the other way around. GF and TSMC are dead in the water. Only Samsung thus far, other than Intel, has managed to scale the 20nm barrier.
On the other hand, Apple could afford to buy Intel, and get the world's best x86 chip designs and the world's best semiconductor manufacturing technology.
Now that might make some sense...
You mean about Rory getting fired and Lisa Su taking his place? That will be Thursday.
Yes. Today in fact. I am guessing Thursday will be the big announcement, to give the market a day to digest the change.
Who knows. The guy is such a moron, the stock may fly when it's announced that he's getting canned.
"Some chief executives have been unable to reverse long-term declines. This has been the problem for Rory Read at Advanced Micro Devices Inc. (NYSE: AMD). The dying chip company has begun to slip away even more quickly since he joined."
AMD's 28nm APUs get creamed by Intel's 22nm CPUs, so why would AMDs 20nm stack up any better compared to Intel's 14nm units?
AMD's deficiencies go far beyond inferior manufacturing. It's architecture is a disaster. By design, even on identical process technology, an AMD APU would, at a minimum, be half as fast and consume twice as much power as an Intel CPU. The process deficit magnifies these deficiencies roughly 2x.
AMD needs to scrap its current architecture completely and start with a clean sheet. Problem is, it spent over $4 billion in R&D and 4 years to cook up this inferior garbage. It does not have another $4 billion or 4 years. Ergo, AMD is what you call "dead meat". Say, that's funny. That's also what your wife calls your pecker - dead meat! LOL!
Maybe ruckpral gave him a disease when he was nibbling Nico's foreskin?
Apple used to use AMD GPUs in every single Mac that used discrete GPUs; iMac, Macbook Pro and Mac Pro.
Apple had miserable luck with poor quality GPUs from AMD, terrible driver support and lousy firmware, and as a result, fired AMD and replaced AMD with nVidia GPUs in all lines save one, retaining bargain basement AMD GPUs in the minuscule volume (less than 500k units per year) Mac Pro, in an effort to offset the high costs of US manufacturing for that model.
If you're hoping that Apple gives a #$%$ about AMD, your hopes will be shattered. Apple's iPad is the device that put AMD on the road to extinction. Apple's new A7 ARM chip features better performance, better graphics and much lower power consumption than all but AMD's very highest end APUs. Apple as much a Intel is working to eliminate AMD from this world.
