OT: seriously looks like the time to BUY BUY BUY. if I recall correctly, there was a time when microsoft was beating up apple so bad that they were considered a monopoly. their stock price went very low. look at them now, if you would have invested back then you'd be rich now. of course people would have thought you were a lunatic for putting money into a company that is about to flop. AMD is the little engine that could, they are gonna go through some troubled times, but sooner or later they will bounce back and do some serious chip kicking

Especially when you see that AMD has drastically reduced their debt since 2008.

What's wrong with Huang?

He is probably referring to back before AMD acquired ATI. They first went to Nvidia but JHH would only agree to the buyout/merger if he himself would remain CEO over the entire newly combined company. That was a deal breaker and they went to ATI instead. JHH is a control freak, or so they say. That is my guess as to why he said what he did.

He is, hence why quite a number of ATI/AMD fanboys like to treat him like Kim Jong-il.

Honestly, seems like the perfect time to buy. Last time I checked new generation consoles will sell like hotcakes, maybe not initially, but the long term moneys in consoles is ridiculous. APUs are the next thing, we all know this. HSA should cement this, if done correctly. AMD graphics are doing pretty damn well, with increased emphasis on driver support, and ridiculous price/performance atm (not at launch).

The only thing AMD lacks is 100% performance desktop part(hopefully remedied with SteamRoller, -shrugs-), and a mobile chip to fight tegra.

If you really evaluate the portfolio, they could take a hardcore rocketship to the moon if Rory plays his cards right.

If I had 1000$ to play with I would invest in Big Red. That's just my thoughts

Surely this will all change when the next gen consoles come out. If it's true that they are going to be all of AMD's stuff inside them.

The only downside I see in this is, they're fighting on sooo many fronts. Maybe even too many, especially for a company in trouble.

AMD is doing well in low-end...

Price Point (+/- $20)_________________AMD Share/Gain_________Nvidia Share/Gain
$120 - AMD HD 7770, Nvidia GTX 650.......0.85%/0.13% ..........................N/A
$150 - AMD HD 7850, Nvidia GTX 650 Ti...1.03%/0.12% ..........................N/A

Quote:
It is clear on the desktop side, AMD has non-trivial share in the $120 - $220 part of the market in the latest generation of cards. However, a thing to keep in mind is that the 7770, 7850, 7870, and 7950 have been available for quite some time while the latest Nvidia 6xx cards have just been released over the last month or so. For investment purposes, we are more interested in growth rates rather than absolute market share, so the conclusions we can make on mid/high end desktop are as follows:

*In the very high end ($300+), Nvidia is seeing stronger growth and has more overall market share.
*In the midrange and low end, AMD's faster time-to-market with latest generation 28nm DirectX 11 parts has helped it gain positive momentum, although next month's numbers will start to reflect the impact of the mid-range GTX 6xx series.
In the mobile space, the DirectX 11 share gainers for discrete GPUs were all Nvidia products - the GT 630M, GTX 660M, GT 650M, GTX 560M, and GTX 670M - all managed to register share gains during October. No AMD discrete graphics part in the mobile space managed to gain share in the survey.

They're just being creamed in mobile and by the GTX 670, GTX 680 in highend Desktop.

It wouldn't be like this if AMD made an effort to produce a better-performing cpu, instead of being complacent and saying:"Oh, our product is good enough."and"Single-threaded performance doesn't matter."
Well guess what,AMD? Your product is NOT "good enough" and Single-threaded performance DOES matter.Why not go back to the drawing board and produce a better product?

They have. Have you been living under a rock or something? One, processor development takes years — AMD is still recovering from mistakes made during the Ruiz administration. Two, their Steamroller design quite clearly lays out numerous changes to increase per-thread performance. By a substantial amount. Seifert, the interim CEO that replaced Dirk Meyer until Rory Reed took over, also made a lot of mistakes. So there's just a lot of cleanup that's going on, and the results of that cleanup won't show until late next year at best.

Erm, try using an AMD processor, I assure you as someone who has used every major x86 processor architecture made within the past 5-6 years that it definitely is more than "good enough", to date I can still barely actually feel the difference between my sig rig and my girlfriends rig which I'm using at the moment (i5 3570k + HD7850) in gaming.

Homeles covered the rest very well.

I bought 200 stocks a few weeks ago @ 2.05, thinking about going in for another 500 or so. Unfortunately I thought bottom for them would be ~$2, but now just a reason to buy more. I do not see them going anywhere soon, and I have complete faith that if something major happens, I can recover most of my money, but like I said, I plan on selling them in 1-2 years for a fairly large profit.

I consider AMD a buy currently. Also look into bonds with them for a more secure option. Bonds expiring in 2015 are about guaranteed to payout, @ ~8% if I remember right.
