GF spent AMD's money and created a valuable business. AMD spent the same money by giving it to GF and has had to continue selling assets to keep the lights on.
AMD is out of stuff to sell. It's done for.
Rendering a video isn't a benchmark. Got it. And giving people discounts is bribery, when your competitor can't afford it. Got it.
Sell your shares; they don't like you any more.
My point is that for whatever reason you think this company has a future, you are wrong. Please read the fundamental facts and weigh them against the weak hype the pumpers and the PR-parrotting media are feeding you. I will keep repeating the truth because it will not be going away, and it bears repeating in the face of persistent attempts to cover it up.
Speaking of covering, nobody's doing that. I'm adding to my short position because these prices are not sustainable. Hype is my best friend, but I am your best friend in the world.
I will never have to cover.
And they stopped shipping Mantle. All you get now is the small subset of Mantle that comes with DirectX. Which does you no good on Linux boxes. Which are fast overtaking Windows boxes.
Haha. No, dope. The reason AMD isn't marketable is that it's a steaming pile of feces. The good parts were sold to Mubadala years ago.
AMD couldn't make any money running its own fabs, but when the Arabs got hold of them they became a $20 billion business.
Which Hector sold off for $3 billion just 7 years ago. Money AMD handed right back to the Arabs for products AMD then sold at a loss. GF continues to bleed AMD dry, forcing Lisa Su to sell off the assembly-test unit as well. Graphics is next. Then the shell will be imploded.
You've been scammed, dopes. And Ken Luskin/kenluskin is helping them scam you more.
People interested in gaming won't be using the integrated graphics. Nobody transcodes video but pirates, and despite your paranoia there aren't that many of those.
So what they're really saying is you should buy this piece of junk because it's got a chromed bell on the handlebar, then you can spend the money you save on a cover so nobody sees it.
Yes, you did, and that proves what I just said. Stop projecting.
You don't get it. Intel could Cc: its tapeouts to AMD and still beat AMD to death with pricing.
AMD can't compete in any way, especially not with its "new" designs that were Intel's three years ago.
Being long AMD is financial suicide.
And now you'll have to ignore him under his real name.
AMD is not on the business of selling chips. It is in the business of shipping cash to Arabs via its fab partnerships.
Read the story about Intel hiring Venkat Renduchintala into a position Intel had let sit vacant for 18 months (an eternity in this business).
Over that same time AMD's presence in all of Intel's markets went from weak to nearly invisible.
AMD is setting records for ineffectual, self-serving management.
There's not much left of it. We can erase the shares soon.
