This keeps AMD in the CPU game and alive so long as NVidia doesn't blow their new generation GPUs out of the water.
It does get a bit tricky there, though, because the base fault that causes the performance issues may well be the way the cores share resources in the modules. If the server chips are incapable of overcoming this issue and there is even the slightest faultering in the GPU market, then AMD could be in serious trouble. Their stock closed at $4.54 today and has been on a slide for a while.
