It's even worse than that. Not only does it use a Core i5, all but one single sub-model of the line use Intel HD5000 integrated graphics.
Typical AMD get one single low end GPU placement win in one single low-volume niche sub-model in a low volume line, and declare victory.
You misread that. It says only that AMD will be forced to sell its R9 285s below the price of GTX 960s.
AMD's R9s though cost AMD much, much more to make than NVDA pays for 960s. AMD will have to dump R9s at little or no margin in order to slow the loss of GPU market share to NVDA.
That's the key takeawy form this news item for AMD investors. More margin erosion, more revenue decline and more losses.
While I concur with your suspicion that Lisa is really a man or at least a hemaphrodite, I'm not sure what that has to do with AMD's declining market share, margins, and revenues, or its impending bankruptcy. She took the job out of greed. Her compensation package was so greedy that it was illegal and shareholders (the non-pumper kind) complained forcing Su to disgorge some of her ill gotten compensation items. She took the job simply because she stands to make million whether or not she runs AMD into the ground and oblivion.
What does AMD have to sell that isn't encumbered by a non-transferable Intel x86 patent license? Some graphics related assets which are worth less as a going concern than all the debt AMD carries currently, and BLX isn't interested in GPUs. BLX and China's Ministry of Technology want in on x86 CPU technology.
If they buy and try to make x86 without Intel's license, they will have a hard time getting those chips fabbed and selling those chips in developed markets where IP protection treaties hold sway. Boy, whoever cooked up the BLX story really is dumber than pluscard!
Not only is it a miss, but also a warning for next quarter, all rolled into one.
For pennies; down HUGE on no news.
Blood and red ink must have leaked into the water.
Hopefully for the fanboys the creditors won't declare a default and accelerate the due date for AMD's mountain of debt!
The paranoid delusion that bashers are getting paid to bash is the second dumbest thing you've said. The dumbest is that you think you can make money betting long on AMD.
They're asking Tandy's bankruptcy counsel if they can get a twofer.
Delivers 1/20th the performance of Intel's fanless Broadwell, consumes 4x the energy, costs about the same.
AMD is DEAD!
Yes, apparently he was caught in a stall in the men's room by Lisa Su who was standing up taking a pee at the urinal, inserting a new Intel Compute Stick in his rear and moaning "ohhhhhh, mmmmm, Intel don't play fair! ahhhhh...mmmmm..." S/he personally escorted ruckpral from the building.
