  • AMD Update: Reasons 11 And 12 Why AMD Will Be $10 In 2017 [View article]
    I wonder if Rory's in-depth knowledge of AMD products and procedures might lead to some new business for AMD. Perhaps we might see a Mullins tablet? Or some similar initiative. Rory's involvement with and in-depth knowledge of project sky-bridge developing a common platform for Arm and x86 processors may lead Dell to adopt the sky-bridge platform sooner rather than later.

    If Dell deploy a common mainboard that can house an Arm processor or alternatively an X86 processor, that could be a cost saving for Dell.

    Rory also understands AMD's ability to provide custom SOC's better than most people and there may be an opportunity for AMD to provide customized SOC's for Dell. Rory's famous sticky revenue.

  • AMD Update: Reasons 11 And 12 Why AMD Will Be $10 In 2017 [View article]
    That is quite a bit of potential new business in the pipeline for AMD.

    1: Server SOC's for Facebook
    2: MediaTek licenses AMD IP for their mobile smartphone and tablet chips
    3: The new Nintendo game console's

    Plus we will soon have the all new Zen and K12 architectures. Then the savings of around 85 million per-annum from the latest round of job cuts should be realized.

    AMD develops custom server microprocessor for Facebook

    "Advanced Micro Devices is working on a server-class system-on-chip (SoC) for Facebook. While not a lot of details are known about the microprocessor today, if Facebook adopts the chip for its datacentres, it will be a major revenue opportunity for AMD."

  • MediaTek Could Be AMD's Ticket To Smartphones And Tablets [View article]
    Fab article Alcaraz

    If indeed the Media Tech AMD deals goes ahead, this will thrust the AMD Radeon brand right back into the public's mind space.

    AMD have been missing in action as it were in the mobile space but with this new deal, people may start to ask for Radeon Graphics for their smart phone or tablet.

    This could eventually benefit AMD's PC business if suddenly the public are surrounded with products utilizing AMD's Radion IP.

  • AMD To Benefit, Over Time, As China Lifts Its Ban On Game Console Sales [View article]
    AMD Radeon Graphics Going Into Mobile Mediatek SOCs

    "AMD will reportedly license its Radeon graphics IP to Mediatek, one of the largest players in the mobile space. Both companies have been collaborating on a mobile SOC graphics solution which will incorporate an AMD Radeon graphics architecture. According to Fudzilla’s report this was revealed at the Mobile World Congress just a few days ago."

    "In what may turn out to be a vital move for MediaTek (TPE:2454) in its bid to challenge Qualcomm (NASDAQ:QCOM) in the mobile segment, it is believed that the Taiwanese manufacturer is set to license AMD’s (NASDAQ:AMD) graphics technology for its SoCs."

    Hey this sounds like a Ca Ching moment :)

    And Here:
    http://bit.ly/1AjEXqT

    "Industry sources hint at a major cooperation between the two companies that has been under way for quite some time now. So, all things considered, AMD might be returning to the mobile GPU scene as a vendor for tailor-made graphics accelerators for MediaTek SoCs. This is all great news and the partnership could potentially be huge for both parties."

    Chipmaker MediaTek to license GPUs from AMD

    "The deal is unconfirmed, notes Fudzilla but the first chip from the two is expected later this year."

  • Can AMD Succeed In Tablets? [View article]
    Project Discovery tablet reinvented with the new ZEN chips at 14 nm would be quite compelling. This does not mean that AMD need to manufacture them. They could team with a Chinese or Taiwanese manufacturer such as Foxconn. I suspect there would be solid demand for a powerful gaming tablet branded AMD. I suspect these Chinese manufactures would welcome the opportunity to produce an AMD branded gaming tablet (with the right technology inside).

    Mullins incorporating Radeon graphics reinvented in 2016 with the new Zen architecture and Samsung 14nm Finfet technology will be a tablet chip to behold.

  • AMD: Why A Buyout Doesn't Really Make Sense [View article]
    I don't know about that Fib. It sounds quite compelling.

    "Loongson shares common roots with Lenovo with the Chinese Academy of Sciences and the Institute of Computing Technology being their shared founders."

    If Loongson do in fact share common roots with Lenovo and the Chinese Academy of Sciences, then this rumor may prove to have some substance.

    "VRWorld reports that key AMD staff have visited China over the last few weeks and that Loongson will use some of its 120 billion Yuan (about £12.6 billion, $19.2 billion, AU$25 billion) to invest in AMD stopping short of an outright acquisition."

    Really only AMD know if this rumor is true or not. Only AMD know if key staff have been visiting China for the purposes of securing an investment from Loongson.

    If however you can categorically say that you know AMD staff have not been visiting China, then that is good enough for me.

    The end of an era as Chinese company mulls plans for massive AMD investment

    "It looks more and more likely that Intel's once-formidable archrival, AMD, could receive some significant capital from a little known Chinese conglomerate called Loongson Technology."

  • AMD +4.2%; Barron's talks turnaround efforts, GPU gains against NVDA [View news story]
    Hey I hope you bears have gone long by now because AMD seems to be on somewhat of a roll. I hope your not still short Fib.

    Anyway I am waiting very patiently for the Caribian Island GPU's.

    I think it was a wise move to rename the new gpu's from Pirate Island to Caribbian Island. There are so many negative conitations with Piracy. Perhaps Tony Beats in Alaska should remove that Pirate flag from his mining rig.

    Does anybody know if Parker reaches his 2000 once target?
