    And so, the tension continues to mount. The aftermath of the alleged relationship blurb by CNBC; between, AMD & TESLA has raised the shackles of the equities market. Prepare yourselves for a barrage of sideshow blathering, for the foreseeable future; about, the superiority of NVIDIA & conversely, a continuation of negative contentions regarding AMD, despite the nasally bellowers being waist deep in AMD acclaim. Institutions will go as far as to bring the entire sector down in a shallow, obvious, transparent effort to hold back the tsunami that is AMD product & technology worth.

    Time, time, precious time is elapsing, running short for the equity moguls; who've been ambushed by their failure to perform due diligence 3 years ago; when, it started to become obvious, AMD was on a solid foundational track to regain it's former stature. Now, the scoundrels are scurrying like rats; who's nests have been discovered & are now threatened with the prospect of becoming prey; instead, of predator. Will the pests, these lower food chain vermin consolidate quickly enough, to avoid total embarrassment in the public square or will they be fed by the tail to the hungry, lying in wait snakes; who, treat penthouse rats like a Pittsburgh Rare chateaubriand?

    My friends, the pressure cooker is bouncing on the stove, it's lid beginning to warp; the AMD action movie is in the midst of a furious car chase, reminiscent of the Steve McQueen classic "Bullitt"; the famous summit between Josie Wales & Ten Bears serves as a symbol of AMD being being on the path of righthousness.

    Do not allow the fat cats to get the last laugh, get your share; because, these greedy slimeballs, villains would take the gold out of your mouth; while, you sleep; that's all I got, Gang, have a relaxing weekend, I'm lighting up a maduro churchill & going out back to do some needed weeding, I love you all.

    there are head and shoulder patterns everywhere right now!! you can see them on the 45 min charts or the 4 hour charts! they are on: spy, nvda, shop, amd, etc- and there's an INVERSE head and shoulder forming on the vix 4 hour chart! these patterns will get completed either today or next week! that means more downside to come for these stocks and up for the vix!

    by wednes, the spy should close the gaps at 246s! so, expect the spy to drop to 246s by wednes next week! it might get it done all in one day- or over the course of 2 days! then next thurs AND / OR fri, as it is end of month, end of quarter, then the markets should go up - on one or both of those days!

    then the first week of october is not a very good week either!! so, expect it to be very choppy that week and most likely will have a downward bias to it (with an up day or 2 in that week too).

    so, just an fyi!

    Can we all just be friends? Longs and shorts is both here to make money right? Let's be adults here and be professionals. Let's start with me and my stalker Doug. What ya say Doug? Can we be best friends and let the past go? Let's not waste time on the past and move forward making money together. I will even let you take my 600k lambo out for a spin if your in Washington DC. 👋

    major difference between now and back then.
    1. Next year AMD 12nm Vs Intel 14nm++ and AMD 7nm vs Intel 10nm, (first time and ever AMD is more advance than Intel on process node)
    2. Secondly, leading by one of the best CEO
    Long and strong, btw, AMD is only company that make both high end CPU, GPU and combined

    Expect More Powerful AMD Ryzen And Vega Products Next Year
    This is not a rumor. AMD will use GlobalFoundries’ 12nm FinFET process next year. It means AMD won’t be selling outdated 14nm products in 2018. A 12nm Vega GPU

    All of you over emotional people who post about hating a stock when it moves...should not be trading with real money. You don't have the mind for it. When the stock moves in the opposite direction as I thought, i don't blame the stock, i blame myself...which is where the blame should lie. GROW UP you tantrum having byches.

    This is my post from 3 months ago on this Tesla deal. Sorry about the lenghth but I did a deep dive.

    Today Tesla was using the Nvidia DrivePX2 that has ARM CPU and Nvidia GPU.

    But Tesla has plans to replace Nvidia's DrivePX2.

    Tesla has assembled an "A" of chip designers from AMD. Tesla is making some SOCs to drive a car.

    Tesla will not invent a new programming language or a new CPU. They will leverage existing open standards.

    The Tesla car driving technology must be reliable first but also powerful, and energy-efficient.

    For the above reason Tesla will use an x86 multicore solution based on AMD IP. They will make a deal with AMD. Each core backs up the prior one yielding redundancy. As your car cpu core crashes the next core steps in freshly booted. Its a crash proof x86 solution. RELIABILITY!

    For speed Tesla will develop a GPU like accelerator based on AMD IP. Google developed the TPU to accelerate deep learning. Tesla will do something similar. These car data accelerators will be feed data by the x86 cpu POWERFUL !!

    For energy efficiency or punch per watt AMD is the world leader in effecient

    So i will hazard a guess that Keller and his team will make AMD based car technology.

    Tesla may sell their new driverless technology to other car makers in order to recoup some development dollars.

    Tesla has an undisclosed deal with AMD. The following is a deep dive of what Tesla did in 2016. It is a little long. But after you see these individual steps, it become obvious what Tesla is doing. It is groundbreaking work.

    Tesla has hired a high profile lead team members that can literally build at any level the self-driving technology required for the future. This technology needs to be reliable, powerful, and energy-efficient. Tesla could start from scratch with a complete new and incompatible computer system. But that does not make sense. Industry Standards are the key.

    Jim Keller will leverage existing industry standards staying inside software support structures. The most open of these is the AMD x86 platform built along with specific purpose accelerators designed for self driving cars. Keller will expand upon THESE industry standardS.

    Tesla recently changed its main computer supplier for its Autopilot/self-driving programs. The company was using the EyeQ3 chip from Mobileye since the implementation of the Autopilot program in 2014, but in introducing the second generation of the program that the company hopes will lead to a fully self-driving system, Tesla started equipping every car with a small NVIDIA supercomputer, DrivePX2.

    The Hugely expensive DrivePX2 from Nvidia is a short time solution. With Keller Tesla will develop the SOCs required for a driverless car.

    Tesla has also partnered with Samsung as their foundry. Samsung characterized the Tesla project as follows:

    "This is a long-term project that requires about 3 years for design, production of prototype, and mass-production. Working with a leading company like Tesla will provide an opportunity to greatly increase capability of Samsung Electronics’ automotive field.”

    Tesla proceeded to hire America's best, a team of high-profile chip architects and executives from AMD to develop the next generation Autopilot under Keller’s leadership. Tesla had a compelling offer, a lot of money and the future of self driving cars.

    Jim Keller came to Tesla in Jan 2016. Remember this is Jim Keller, the guy is a processor architect. Undoubtedly one of the best in the world. AMD would pay him whatever he wants to stay, Intel would do the same, undoubtly Apple and Nvidia would also jump at him (not to mention Samsung, qualcom, etc.)

    Peter Banon, Keller’s former colleague at PA Semi and Apple, followed Keller going to Tesla just a few weeks later.

    Debjit Das Sarma, long-time AMD fellow and CPU Lead Architect, is among the AMD engineers hired by Tesla last month to also work on the Autopilot.

    David Glasco, a Chip architect, holds a PhD in Electrical Engineering from Stanford and he held chip architect roles at Intel, IBM, Newisys, NVIDIA, and more recently as a Senior Director of Server SOC Architecture and Performance at AMD. His resume reads: "Computer system design, multi-processing, cache-coherent systems, interconnect architectures, CPU architecture, GPU architecture, performance analysis & research & design. 85+ patents.”

    Tesla also hired AMD’s Director of Cloud Server Architect, Thaddeus Fortenberry, as SoC Software and Security Architect, again on the next generation Autopilot team. Before joining AMD, Fortenberry was Principal Architect at Microsoft.

    Finally, Tesla highered AMD’s ‘Corporate Vice President of Strategy and Corporate Development’, Keith Witek, to be the automaker’s new ‘Director of Autopilot Enablement and Associate General Counsel’. Witek describes his new role at Tesla on his LinkedIn profile:

    “Working with cross-functional teams to drive legal matters, alliances, engineering projects, IP development, and more. Specifically, our charter is to create autonomous driving systems comprising smart vehicles and machine-learning cloud platforms.”

    From Apple, Tesla hired away Chris Lattner because he has a history of building enormously complex, enormously successful software projects. As his PhD advisor, Vikram Adve, points out, Swift is just one example of this. Before that,

    Chris Lattner built two other software projects on a similar scale: LLVM and Clang. These are foundational tools at both Apple and Google, underpinning everything that happens on the iPhone and on every Google online service. Again this points to Tesla staying inside industry standards.

    Tesla can do Anything. But if Tesla wants something fielded in 3 years Keller must build upon and leverage industry standards.

    It is my bet that Lisa Su is the Architect of this deal and Keller will go with what he knows, AMD standards.

    AMD is on record saying they have a semi-custom major deal that is not related to gaming that will provide revenues in 2018. Up to each investor to decide if this is Tesla, or something else. Walking back comments before the official announcement are common but need to read between the lines if you are a shrewd investor.
    Or, you could just do whatever motley fool tells you...
    I choose option #1.

    Tenely, don't worry fabricator. I will soon be gone from here and you can live out your superficial life on this YMB for years to come. I grow tired of proving you and the other scammers wrong in what you say. I have all i need in life and really don't need to expose the likes of your kind anymore. I can say this because i don't need this board to fulfill my life as you do. Ok, so soon i be gone and you can keep doing what you do in playing out your sorry ssa life here. I am sure no ne will miss me and that is just the way life is. GLTA

    Last week Nvidia was at 160 and it has rallied to 180 on total fluff and hype while AMD was pushed down.
    Last week Intel was at 35+ and it has rallied to 37+ on total fluff and hype while AMD was pushed down.
    AMD was clearly accumulated while these negative tripped shorts keep shorting the stock hoping to take it to 6.

    Market knows info about Tesla and duped those who sold the stock today. Otherwise, too coincidental.

    AMD reported that it is working with Google and not much reaction in the market- thats a very big deal.
    AMD reported that it is working with Microsoft Azure platform and EPYC will be used - thats a very big deal.
    AMD reported that it is working with Baidu last week and will deploy Vega and EPYC - thats a very big deal.
    AMD reported that it is working with Amazon to deploy Vega and EPYC - Thats a very big deal.
    AMD reported that it is working with HP, Lenovo and many other server venders - thats a very big deal.
    I am not mentioning many new products and other technological equalizations that are happening.

    AMD is working with Tesla to design their AI chip. Tesla could sell the system to other car venders too and the volume on this could be very high. It does not make sense to just keep it with them as this will not be a differentiating feature eventually. This is an incredibly big deal as they are the ones pushing hardest on AI. Hopefully the market accepts AMD now and stops looking at it though the clouds of its past.

    It may still be positive to Nvidia and Intel because of the overall growth of datacenter and AI market size but AMD has just hit the ball out of the park.

    While people think that the Tesla deal will bring marginal revenue to AMD, think again! Cars are going to be in the true sense, mobile computers. So every car will have a GPU and CPU for gaming ,computing and VR ready.

    on monday, look for amd to get to 13.40s - to 13.44 to be exact! after it gets to 13.36 that is ;) and yes, 13.36 is still its goal- so, look for that on monday! and then look for 13.44!

    here's a ps to 2 of my posts today:

    amd will get to 13.40s on monday (13.44 is its goal- after it reaches 13.36 on monday) - BUT, it will also head down next week to 12.50 to 12.90s.

    this will most likely occur "by" wednesday! so, sometime between mon and wednesday is when it should get to those prices under 13!

    so, just an fyi for you guys!
