The only product from AMD that Sony could use is the console APU, and that is an x86 chip which means that technology is controlled by Intel under the x86 patent license. Intel can veto ANY sale of AMD that attempts to transfer the right to make x86 products. Period.
The results are now clear.
Intel took massive amounts of market share away form AMD in servers, PCs, laptops and tablets in Q4, 2013.
nVidia took massive discrete GPU market share away from AMD in Q4, 2013.
Both companies guide that they will maintain their momentum from Q4 through Q1. AMD, on the other hand, guides for a 13-19% revenue decline (q-over-q) in Q1, with major losses likely, falling margins, vanishing cash and, based on the Intel and nVidia results and forward guidance, no possibility of growth until year end.
You tards are looking at a $1 stock in 2014.
Read is better in one regard. he's better at giving fanboys who want it lots of buttlove. Jensen is straight.
That's stupid. A Core i3 Haswell with integrated Iris graphics will play games at 1080p, and costs only $130. In fact, the Core i3 beats the brand new Kaveri in integrated graphics performance even on Mantle enabled games. Just like no one will buy an AMD APU, likewise no one will buy an over-priced AMD card that can't match Intel's lowest performing integrated Iris graphics!
You really should have some more lube with that plug.
Vanguard sold a bundle in September 2013. They're not even back to their pre-September level. What a joke.
Yep. The appearance of the fake PhD is a definite sell signal. It usually precedes massive layoffs and other austerity measures.
Just look at the frenetic reaction you got out of him. He's probably in the parking lot revving his pink scooter violently. LOL!
He's the only pumper that is posting on this thread. The guy just can't take it. He tries to dish it out but when someone nails his tail to the floorboards, he goes non-linear. That guy is seriously f'ed up if you ask me. Hide your chickens.
Funniest danged thing I've read in a week! The whole office is laughing about it now!
T-minus-30-minutes to go, ballsdeep.
I wait with 'bated breath.
ARM dominates only phones and tablets. ARM powered desktops, servers and laptops are virtually non-existent or are in steep decline (in the case of laptops).
x86, and not just any x86 but rather Intel's genuine x86 microprocessors, utterly, totally and completely dominate consumer and enterprise PCs and laptops, and enterprise servers.
Intel's dominant x86 chips have successfully crushed and ejected ARM from low end laptops and are expanding faster into ARM turf such as tablets the first half and phones at the end of the year, than ARM chips will ever intrude into Intel's strongholds.
Intel was an ARM licensee for decades. If there was any advantage to ARM architecture, Intel the world's greatest, most successful and TOTALLY DOMINANT microprocessor maker, would have exploited the architecture commercially.
In fact, Intel is probably the ONLY company in the world capable of making ARM plausible in core Intel markets. No other ARM licensee has any success in those bastions.
Intel killed Sun SPARC, HP PA-RISC, IBM Power and all the rest of the RISC/UNIX posse. Killed them off aggressively using its superior design and manufacturing capabilities and all-powerful x86 architecture.
Intel next will kill off ARM in tablets, then phones. Intel's TOTAL MONOPOLY in servers, PCs and laptops will extend to servers and tablets within 4 years. Intel is invulnerable, infallible and completely UNSTOPPABLE.
AMD? Never heard of it. Have you? No? Didn't think so.
Down over 40% since the middle of 2012 when Rory took the reins and APUs were first released.
Talk about clearly being on the wrong path, lead by the wrong CEO, and offering the wrong products!
What an idiot. AMD has been in a huge downtrend since mid-2012. It is worth 44% less today than it was worth in mid-2012. It has been downhill since hiring Rory and launching APUs. That's a fact.
Wow. When you lay it out like that the pumpers sure do look stupid. AMD has nothing noteworthy available now or even on the roadmap. I bet it's bondholders are getting really, really nervous at this point. With $500 million due in May and another $580 million due at the end of next year, ans less cash than that on hand, with cash burn, revenue drop and further margin erosion forecast by AMD management, how will those creditors be repaid?
