It's not. It's just making them look even more foolish.
After a decade of research I'm convinced nobody who's ever claimed knowledge of an AMD buyout was telling the truth and nobody who's ever guessed there would be an AMD buyout has been right.
But they've all been liars. And you're no different.
I don't see why Intel and nVidia wouldn't renew the agreement. It wouldn't have to be at the same price, but Intel could offer cross-license terms that cost it nothing and give nVidia access to terrific technology. They could even get into a fab arrangement. Tegra on 14 nm two years ahead of any other design house?
This is speculation. The price of NVDA already discounted the risk and is now reacting to the FUD. The reality won't be known for up to two years.
And it won't help AMD a tiny bit. AMD pumpers' obsession with the fate of better companies indicates they have run out of lies about AMD.
2004 called. It wants its canard back.
AMD can't get work because it stinks at its job. Get over it.
AMD has to compete with them all, too.
Between AMD and INTC, which would you estimate to have the better chance against those odds?
If nothing else, remember which one has a multi-year lead in process technology.
This was a rumor constructed by a blogger on a purely speculative basis. It was no more credible than if one of the local pumpers said it should happen. But because it came from Korea, the less intelligent among us believed it had credence. All they did was reiterate that nobody should trust what they think.
Have you ever observed it to make a difference what you tell them?
They act like reality never existed.
You could set a separate monitor on their desks showing an array of webcams pointed at the board and C-suites' desks and they could see every back-slap and hear every guffaw and still not admit what's going on.
It was only done because Sea Micro's CEO was an ex-AMD employee. He got his share of the embezzlement that constitutes AMD's business model.
That story is a week old. Intel will probably renew the agreement, since it uses nVidia technology in its chips and wants to keep doing that. The report is inaccurate as to scale, though. Intel is paying $1.5B total in 6 installments for IP it already uses, then it keeps that. nVidia was always going to lose that $250M/y cashflow, so anyone bailing now simply failed to do due diligence (i.e. they're probably going to buy AMD shares with the proceeds). Intel will be able to negotiate a lower price for licensing on IP nVidia develops after this deal terminates. Probably a technology swap that costs them nothing. If that's the case, then nVidia should be able to improve the capabilities of its Tegra chips. It might even get some x86 technology to play with.
So rather than being a damaging event for nVidia, the end of this agreement could easily hurt AMD. If it's still around. Which isn't at all likely.
Hybrid just means it's simulcast and you can act from offsite if necessary. And March 2 is when they froze the list so they knew who to mail proxies to. If you sell before the meeting you're responsible for forwarding them to the buyer. Brokers usually take care of that for you, because they know you're an AMD shareholder and not likely to know how to operate an envelope.
Every kid in this country who wants a console has a console. The volume curve is dropping like a rock. And China isn't saving anything.
Sony and Microsoft are squeezing AMD's margins.
It's the fluff that poofs out of your seams when you're punched, masochist.
Are you really that dumb? A 15% loss is a 15% loss.
