I don't know if this is ok in this part of the forum, very much a noob to all this. Always found finding fixes faster than asking an waiting. But I have a discussion...

AMD sadly do look like they are going down the pan, selling parts of the company off. Not able to develop and heavily into the CPU division, not as much as AMD64 even.

I'm wondering what people's thoughts are on the future of AMD now it's not so fusion? Has anyone found anything about ARM considering a take over. I'm quite kean on this as I've been with AMD since the K5! I can't turn to blue! And ARM are already masters of silicone. Kinda ironic how efficient ARMs chips are and AMD very much arnt.

Not gonna happen. They're in two different markets.

As long as intel has a competitor that can put out a decent desktop processor at a cheap price like amd has been doing for the past couple of years - i dont think it really matters. Even if arm does acquire amd, aslong as there is still a rivalry between 2 companies, both companies will make an effort to improve their product, If intel doesnt have a rival in the market - they will not have a need to improve their product.

This.

Competition drives innovation. I don't see AMD going under any time soon, even with the miniscule market share. As long as they're able to do something...ANYTHING to compete, they have a breath of life left.

It's a wonder how intel would be able to pass monopoly laws if they do go. As for ARM, AMD has started developing with them for a closed licence server chips. Dedicated chips but still some team work. It would be brilliant if they did bring something out for the PC market. I could possibly be willing to pay decent intel money for that smile.gif

Once devs get on board optimizing software with GPUs, AMD will have a much bigger portion of the market. They have the console hardware contracts too this gen (they had a big portion from last gen too). Its not always about pure performance. And what about the software devs in the market moving towards efficient parallelism? I was just looking at java and it seems there is a move for full GPU rendering support? (don't know much, maybe someone can fill in) With a large portion of the consumer market having APUs, that is incentive for developers to make their software efficient for available GPUs.

Agreed.

I like to think that AMD is going to be around for awhile. They got their CPU's inside the PS4 and Xbox One, that has to count for something, imho. Also, their price point will keep them around as well; they are affordable and perform like they say they will.

Apus is amd s future and I do t think there leaving anytime soon I currently have one and I think its real innovation the power of a strong GPU and a quad core proccesor maybe even 8 core in the future hell yea.
