AMD will be spit into two companies. One to design processors and the other to manufacture them. The move is made primarily from the stiff competition we've seen from Intel lately to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the company.
Apologies if this is already been posted.
looks into a good move in my opinion. the design group get all the glitches done and work more closely with the manufacturing in developing a state of the art product...
MacBook Pro 13.3" LED-Backlit Glossy, Intel "Penryn" Core 2 Duo T8700 - 2.53G, 8GB DDR3 1066, NVIDIA GForce 9400M 1280X800
HTPC 4G DDR3 XMS Corsair, Intel i5-750 Quad Core, 6ft HDMI Cable by Rosewill, AverMedia Tv Card, Gigabyte P55M-UD2, Sapphire ATI Radeon HD 5770 with Vapor X Cooling, 500 HD Maxtor 7200 2.5 HDD, Asus Blu-Ray Optical Drive, 46" LED Toshiba TV
Someone, for the love of god, please correct me if I'm wrong. But:
Everytime I hear of a move like this, I get the feeling that one side of the house feels that the other side is dead weight. I mean, how is it possible to make more money as two companies than as one? Isn't it more likely that this is to show to which side the losses are attributable?
As one company, you charge yourself less than others for the manufacturing process. Unless this split magically makes other companies think "Oh, let's go to AMD's fab because they have no vested interest in design", I don't see how it helps.
This is something Microsoft knows, which is why - even though the DoJ ordered them split - they never did. Smart.
What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
You could be very right. I wonder if they are kicking the fabs so the engineers can keep making CPUs even if the fabs go under.
