    Today also Qimonda Bunkrupted.
    When Mercedes brought their C111 to Talledega years ago and blew away the closed course record did it count? Yes..
    That was a "factory" car and a "one of" that no one could buy and was never sold.
    Records are records and that is a fact so get over it.

    There were numerous rumors on the web that an AMD-nVidia merger was discussed, but that Jen-Hsun wanted to be head CEO in charge. Hector did not like the idea apparently.

    Not sure if it is true, it came from your usual rumor-rag sites (FUDzilla, The Inq).

    Intel has not reported a loss (yet ) ... but this recession thing is long long from being over, it will get worse before it gets better (IMO).

    I am generally not for the death penalty, but these type of actions, the severity and horridness of the crime, really make me consider it -- hence, my offer to the authorities It is unimaginable, just truly sickening.

    I do not mean a merger, A partnership of shared ideas and a shared will to compete. They worked together for years with strong nvida gpu and chipsets with amd cpus, Could they not co develop fusion etc?

They are not interested in AMD at all, and I'm sure they knew AMD was on its way out when they bought it...that's why I'd buy it. If it were me and I had that kind of money why mess with a failed company when I could turn it into a money maker. These people are smart. They didn't buy into that company to take huge losses. It's already well past failure stage. It's just a matter of the legalities and letting the courts decide how to divide up what's left of any money to pay back some of the debt they owe. A court definitely needs to get ahold of those books though. I'm surprised this has been allowed to go on as long as it has.
    i see some part of that becoming signature.. lol.. seriously. who here wants amd to go down.. why so intel can charge you 800 USD for a Core i7 ?? or so that intel can sit on Corei7 for another four years without doing anything spectacular.. ?? hmmm..

    I don't think this would have worked, that partnership already existed anyway. AMD needed the rights to the intellectual property as well as the design talent under roof to achieve the intended level of integration. I doubt, in your scenario, that nVidia would have simply handed over the blueprints for their GPU to a foreign entity.

    Absolutely, compared to getting turned into some one's girl friend, killing him would be the easy way out!

    Anyway, ATI didn't help AMD. AMD had the Texas plant and employees to start their own Chipset department. ATI's chipset wasn't that strong. Most folks in-the-know didn't think AMD wa making a bad move buying ATI, they just thought AMD paid too much.

    I read on the respected Tech-Web (not fud on inq) that AMD was in merger talks with nVidia. nVidia broke off talks.

    Last year it was estimated that 287 million processors were sold. A normal 4th qt would have meant 300 million a new plateau. 200 million would be good the way things look right now. Only 150 million wouldn't surprise me if things don't pick up. No, I'm not wondering why Intel isn't in a hurry to get i5 out. It would just be more glut that'd drag prices even lower. It would hurt them as well.

    Oh, Vista did nothing to hurt tech. If anything hurt them, it's that they made better products for the last 6 years. Most households have more than 2 computers and it is NOT seen as a necessity. Many business' have 3 to 4 year old computers dependable computers made by AMD and Intel that can run anything on the market. Intel even admitted that a lot their sales were in emerging markets, distribution AMD didn't have. Then the downturn is crushing them, NOT Intel.

    AMD also announced they're going to let production slip below demand:

    AMD executives acknowledged Thursday that they plan to let existing inventories in the reseller channel deplete, and then manufacture fewer processors than its customers demand, so as to not be stuck with excess inventory.

    AMD lowered its manufacturing rates during the fourth quarter, in part to reduce its inventories in response to flat or down market demand, Rob Rivet, AMD's chief financial officer, told investors in AMD's fourth-quarter conference call Thursday afternoon. AMD reported a loss that exceeded revenue.

    The whole tech industry has definitely been hurt by the fact that 3-4 yr old HW runs what 70% of all users need just fine. If anything the Vista launch fiasco just made a few more people (re)buy hardware...

    Also what most worries me about AMD is that all their new tech (Phenom) is based around performance rather than efficiency. These days if you want people to upgrade you need to produce something that's more energy efficient. A few years back when Intel went on their performance per watt rampage it seemed a bit odd but that's what's paying off for them right now.

    Put out Phenom II @ 2-3ghz using 45-85w TPD and you'll do much better with the mainstream market than 2.8-3.5ghz @ 105+w TPD. Use the ATI branch to integrate to make all-in-ones with under 80w TPD. I'd imagine those would sell VERY well in the business world! Tell them they'd be saving 100-200w per computer, that adds up FAST

    Yes, yup and you got it! Yes I saw AMD cutting back as well.

    That would be way too risky. IP sharing and exposure, what if it leaks?

    It's too dependent on company relations, and even nV and MS had infightings before despite being partners on the Xbox chip so not a good way to go.

    that's what athlon X4 is 95 watt most likely over rated they have no l3 cache just 4 cores and Ht3.0

    Jack of all trades, master of none. I see AMD's problems relative to the entire tech sector and overall deflationary economy of reduced aggregate demand. Seagate is undergoing major difficulties as well; but there aren't that many as passionate about hard drives, much less to pit one hard drive company against another.

    Whether we like it or not, AMD is caught in a economic maelstrom, while the entire tech sector is undergoing a paradigm shift. The entire landscape is going to change (over the next few years) faster than the actual tech. It's almost impossible to talk so definitively in these times. I'm also curious to see how AMD's lawsuit against Intel unfolds.

    BTW, as of 12AM EST, AMD is up 5.45%, while the Dow is down 1.39%.

    Interesting article in today's The Economic Times about AMD's effort to break Intel's monopoly in India, especially in the govt. sector.

    AMD should hire you. Am still searching for a good quad the will be using less power(45w-65w) Damn electric bills

    No matter how bad the economy is people will still drive.

    In a nut shell....because of price and tech.
    We all need AMD around to stalemate Intel as far as we need cpus tech to advance.
