Intel on the otherhand is sitting on mountains of cash and income because they've had success in the market. However, their success in the market is partly due to their terrible business practices.

AMD though that 120398902134 cores is the way to go. And how more engineers gives better results? 0.o
Their GPU's don't suck...

AMD was just as shady when they held the performance crown...

They never held the performance crown in the eyes of everyone who didn't know a lick about PCs at the time. Intel made sure that during those days the laymen and majority still thought Intel>AMD so Intel has always held the perceived performance crown and that's all that actually matters.

But yeah, they did charge 1k for CPUs also.

He invested in AMD and wants AMD to move some of their R&D to Abu Dhabi, as he wants some of GLoFo to move there.

People buy AMD for there Operton processors.

Kinda sad they gotta sell out to foreign investors..tbh..I'm thinking AMD cpu is probably on its way out..3 years without making an improved chip..or getting any performance gains;Their stock is through the floor.Disappointing and sad.sad-smiley-002.gif From what they say..They're not even trying to come with something better, and complacent with what they're doing. headscratch.gif "Oh, It's good enough" Umm..no..it's not.

You guys need to chill the hell out...
This is a quality move by AMD, did you guys fail to notice this part ?

He (Ahmed Yahia Al Idrissi) holds Masters of Science degrees from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in Mechanical Engineering/Product Strategy and an engineer's degree from Ecole Centrale Paris. While at MIT, he received the J.William Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board award for academic excellence.

I don't think they sold out, whoever said that you need to stop posting rubbish man seriously.
They're looking to evolve, and they have strategically planned so. Good work AMD, we want advanced Architecture.

If you don't keep up with AMD product launches then don't talk about them as you obviously don't know anything relevant. They recently released a CPU known as the FX-8350 which provides more performance than all of their previous CPU's.

Also, I wonder if people would have been as concerned about this move if the guy didn't have a middle-eastern name.

I hope Ahmed is able to kick things into high-gear! With the release of the FX-8350 AMD did shorten the performance gap a bit, but an aggressive/insightful CEO would help keep AMD's future tech on track.
