Before you clarified.... there were a dozen spooks out there franticly going through their classified reports looking for information on AMD.

They will, they made a huge mistake with the 3 core processors and they got hit hard on the mobile market with their failures of the mobile processors. And they really didn't fall to on their promise to make ATI open source like they claimed they would, the drivers are still broken as shit. A lot of claims and little done. I hope they've learned a lesson and start acting on their promises instead of hyping up products. It looks like they're starting to rebuild themselves on the mobile market, but too little too late.

I always buy AMD when I'm in the market for a PC, always have and most likely, always will.

They are slashing to the bone to save the company, just like every other big name is doing these days.

It would be more than sad. It would mean higher prices from nVidia and Intel, not to mention the loss of all those hi-tech jobs and lots of unhappy worker. AMD was never able to get the speed crown that they help for a brief time over Intel and nVidia, not sure why. Competition is great for us consumers as it means higher quality and more bang for the buck. Now, Intel and nVidia can relax a bit and move prices up.

That's ridiculous. No company can survive without marketing no matter what size.

AMD's problem is they gambled on multicore technology that didn't pan out, while Intel stuck with single thread performance which is a much safer bet.

Even if you don't like AMD you shouldn't want it to fail. It's the only real competitor to Intel.

Without AMD Intel is basically a monopoly. They will be able to put out an inferior product for more money because there won't be any worth competition.
Ayatollah Khomeini:
“Islam makes it incumbent on all adult males, provided they are not disabled and incapacitated, to prepare themselves for the conquest of [other] countries so that the writ of Islam is obeyed in every country in the world. But those who study Islamic Holy War will understand why Islam wants to conquer the whole world…. Those who know nothing of Islam pretend that Islam counsels against war. Those [who say this] are witless. Islam says: Kill all the unbelievers just as they would kill you all! Does this mean that Muslims should sit back until they are devoured by [the unbelievers]? Islam says: Kill them [the non-Muslims], put them to the sword and scatter [their armies]. Does this mean sitting back until [non-Muslims] overcome us? Islam says: Kill in the service of Allah those who may want to kill you! Does this mean that we should surrender to the enemy? Islam says: Whatever good there is exists thanks to the sword and in the shadow of the sword! People cannot be made obedient except with the sword! The sword is the key to Paradise, which can be opened only for Holy Warriors! There are hundreds of other [Koranic] verses and Hadiths [sayings of the Prophet] urging Muslims to value war and to fight. Does all that mean that Islam is a religion that prevents men from waging war? I spit upon those foolish souls who make such a claim.”
