Correct. HBM1 was a bad investment. nVidia walked right past it and is readying HBM2 for market.
AMD is so far behind it thinks it's ahead.
There is nothing Microsoft can do that AMD hasn't tried. Microsoft is a software company and AMD is only to happy to overpay to attract designers. You are the clueless one. If you are incapable of thinking beyond your bias, stop eating the Internet's patience.
They should spend less time pumping and more time working. Not surprised their bosses are oblivious to the goldbricking.
I hadn't factored in quality escapes on the coolant pump motor, but that's another thing on this product that can only be a source of failure. Nobody is buying this part for the cooler motor, but lots of people can justify returning it for a faulty one and buying another manufacturer's card.
Rookie mistake on AMD's cognizance to skimp on ancillary equipment.
VR has been done a few times. Like 3D, which has a history going back to the first decades of movies.
It always has adherents and wow factor, but never sticks.
VR will have far less impact until it gets even more portable and unobtrusive than Google Glass.
Cellphones replaced the telephone. It gave people mobility and the connection to their home and work they wanted. And then they became the ultimate multitasker, putting all of the gadgets into one pocketable unit, weight daily free software updates and infinite possibilities for use and profit.
VR ties them to their computers, same as a monitor does. And allows only one person to see the TV. it's a unitasker, too cumbersome and uncomfortable for business use. And it doesn't increase the use case universe by more than a tiny percent. It enhances some games, in a way that is initially valuable but eventually tiresome. Other uses are so niche and twee that they went through the VR experiment decades ago and rejected it as more trouble than it's worth at any display weight.
Your analogy is nonsense. Stop substituting magical thinking and biased rationalization for objective, factual analysis.
1. Zen is a hyperexpensive full redesign of the core in a declining technology.
2. AMD is behind nVidia in HBM. Being lapped is not being ahead.
3. Fury X hasn't sold a unit on Amazon since Amazon's stock ran out on day 1. And it was never the best selling graphics card. It didn't even crack the top 5.
4. Fury Nano is a slow version of Fury.
5. Dual Fury will be waxed by dual Maxwell, and posting paper benchmarks on AMD chips should be a federal crime.
6. Carrizo is a well-known disappointment.
7. Quantum isn't impressing anyone. VR is the new 3D. Only people with more money than brains buy into it.
8. APUs are a well-known disappointment. AMD made a business out of marrying old graphics cores with old compute cores.
9. Repeated false buyout rumors are pumpers pumping pumpers. You dopes have made being an AMD long an embarassingly negative personality defect.
10. AMD has tried for YEARS now to market itself in whole, and the rest of the business world has rejected it. Nobody will take this thing for 51% of the market cap. The x86 license is part of the reason. It will cost billions to convince Intel to let an acquirer have it. And despite claims to the contrary, Intel is under no obligation to give up IP it's already licensed to use just because AMD wants to dump itself on eBay.
11. Read something other than boards. The news is full of people saying the Microsoft buyout rumor is unfounded, illogical, and nonsensical.
12. AMD's CPU team has cost AMD about 99% of its market cap; it's the GPU side that held the company up, but even that can't produce a turn that takes the lead in graphics any more.
You have no idea what you're talking about, no matter what time of day it is.
No, until they deny it, it's just an unfounded rumor that you idiots are falling for.
How long have you been trading AMD? How much have you lost on it?
At this point, most of you longtime pumpers would need about 10 rumors in a row to come true just to break even.
AMD's financials are no rumor. They're true every day, and they have served shorts well for a decade.
Every time pumpers post obvious nonsense they remind everyone AMD has no future.
That doesn't baffle me. Pumpers are masochists and love the negative attention it brings them.
Stockguyy97 even got a BLX tattoo. At least that's what they told him those chinese characters spelled. But really he now has a giant "Kick Me I Love Pain" graphic all across his back.
There's nothing to it. It's a blogger speculating on misheard misinformation. Buyout rumor of the week. Spreading it could land you in court against the SEC. Especially if you traded right before posting.
We've been here for years telling the truth.
You've been here two weeks and all you do is troll.
AMD can't make x86 profitably any more.
Microsoft isn't going to buy something that will cost it more to make than it could pay to buy the parts from Intel.
You're another masochist, posting obvious nonsense to get the abuse.
Keep trolling. We know you only do it because you love the pain.
Informing the public of AMD's decrepit nature, and pointing out your deceit, make me a hero and you a trolling masochist.
Quarterly roll. Made big bucks this quarter and will repeat it next quarter.
Nothing you can do can stop the truth from driving this stock into the ground and shorts from making money at it. In fact, your pump is helping us profit by slowing the decline so we can collect more suckers at higher prices.
I will never have to cover.
