LOL, youidiobasher, Nvidia has had multi-gpu for workstations and datacenters for a long time.
If any developer wanted to use it, it's available.
AMD's problem is you can't combine 2 dies and hope they can trump the larger die.
But they also have a lack of R&D funding and can't do everything they want.
AMD had to put a nice marketing spin on it and make it sound nice.
It's the executives jobs to put on a happy face.
They aren't going to come out and say we can't compete on the high end.
All the reasons Raja lists for doing what they are doing on 14nm is because they are losing money and have limited R&D.
They can't chase HBM2 or the largest die sizes on 14nm.
"xxxavatarxxx read the topic, someone was spread FUD about layoffs "
The funny thing objected_gaap is this may not be FUD.
They guided down in Q4 2015, and Q1 2016 guidance.
Their revenue and margins can't support their head count.
It's not even close to being able to support their head count.
If you take a step back and just look at the high level overview, I don't think anyone would be surprised if AMD had a rift.
objected_gaap, so is AMD. They have 113 positions open in the US.
Yet AMD rifts every year and lose money every quarter.
Just looking that a copany has job openings means squat.
They have to hire to staff for turn over and area's of expertise they are missing.
Global Foundries rift in Q4 of last year is not my opinion.
That is a fact.
Also a fact is their shrinking revenue.
To some degree they fall with AMD since AMD is their biggest client.
objected_gaap, AMD rifts every year, but they still hire.
This is normal.
Companies still need to fill certain positions even after they rift.
You can't leave positions essential for critical projects unfilled.
Holy #$@@. Congrats on that!
My Jaw is dropping over here.
I didn't get online until late today.
Think it still has any juice left?
"@@ I did read GF is hiring, must be going good over there."
No you didn't.. google "fab 8 layoffs"
Then get back to us.
' in Q2 and a significant reduction in OPEX from this deal"
Wow, are you still pitching this nonsense.
That money just gets shifted to the cost of goods.
They don't get free labor from the deal.
Concur with the OP.
AMD will rift again this year.
The abysmal revenue in Q1 and Q2 is going to force a rift.
Thats good on HBCCP.
I tried to buy some Friday and Monday and never got my orders filled.
Will take a look at ebayl
I've been unloading blocks of shares I acquired for flipping on Friday and this morning.
Mainly WFC-W, BAC-C, SCHW-D, and BCS-D (which I bought when the euro bank preferred were getting pounded).
I'm not sure how frothy preferred will get on this up swing.
Feeling prudent like I need to lock in some profits.
"AMD is ready"
No.. AMD is at the mercy of Global Foundries in the fab space.
Global Foundries has been a complete flop.
Mubadala would flush the whole thing down the toilet and forget about both companies if he can get what he wants for Global Foundries.
i_give_you_this, did it ever occur to you Nvidia can move to 10nm faster than AMD.
TSMC will be at 10nm before Global Foundries.
And Nvidia can actually afford to switch to the bleeding edge process node.
They have loads of money.
Let that one sink in.
It must be referring to the Korean times rumor that Samsung will fab for AMD.
It still doesn't mean anything for 10nm and 7nm.
AMD is stuck with Global Foundries.
The only reason they would be able to dual source parts right now between GF and Samsung is they are using the same process since GF licenses their process node from Samsung.
Again, do you think the article can be mistaken.
It says they acquired Nvidia as well, and google shows nothing for Samsung and Nvidia having a partnership to fab parts.
Zip, Nada, Zilch.
One of these days you will realize how Samsung bent Global Foundries over backwards and took Qualcomm from them and is going to take more customers as more of them move to 14nm.
You aren't speculating anything.
You are posting links about Samsung which is useless.
You can't get it out of your head that Global Foundries is not SAMSUNG.
