OT: AMD to Cut 1,400 Jobs

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Advanced Micro Devices Inc. plans to cut 10% of its work force, or about 1,400 jobs, as the chip maker grapples with issues that include manufacturing glitches and a failure to penetrate the hot mobile-device market.

AMD noted that a bulk of the savings from the cuts will be used for “initiatives†related to low-power chips, emerging markets and cloud computing.

No mention on the Bulldozer disappointment.

Well, for those who waited for BD might wanna buy it so they can wait around for Piledriver and hope AMD doesn't go under.

Edit - And just for clarification, that was SARCASM. I know how people tend to blow up and flame because they can't tell the difference, so yeah, don't get butt hurt.
