And holier than thou comes to mind.

Well at least it was only a 20 million loss. I was excepting much worse with that 200 million payment to GloFo.

OT: It is still positive and I hope they continue to improve.

This was the original title: "AMD back into the red, post 20M$ loss", identical to what some clown on anandtech forums posted.

Yeah the quarter was pretty good for AMD. Higher than expected, great forecast and announced great new products coming shortly. I guess that's why the stock shot up 6% after hours. I'm almost wishing I could bring myself to invest in wall street, but since they're nothing but a bunch of crooks and criminals, i don't see that happening anytime soon. tongue.gif

As an investor if you see that a company made a loss because of a one time fixed payment then that is good news. It would be like saying Microsoft was doing bad when they wrote off 900m for the surface.

We are saying the same thing. I work with a fortune 500 company with SOX reporting for 20 years. We are taught to ignore non-gaap ="CEO speak to confuse investors". non gaap means they can befuddle you with all types of adds and subtractions that might not tell you if they were profitable or not. They all do it. After several scandals with Corporate reporting years ago, large companies in the US are required to report GAAP results which AMD did here.

 

GAAP is the straight truth with no bs, it's the bottom line of profit and loss for the period. That's all I was saying. Looks like you were saying the same.

I am not sure if that is factored in yet.

AMD has always reported their financials a little funny...not wrong mind you, but they are some times harder to interpret (though other companies are far worse). An amount of $213 million payable to Global Foundries is still listed as a liability and the -$20 million is only revenue - cost of sales - operating costs and unless that $200 million is rolled up into cost of sales it hasn't happened yet as far as the report is concerned.

They should become NVIDIA. Get rid of the trash, focus on the IP that matters most. The one that shines.

They have so much crap going on.

There is a reason NVIDIA didn't care about selling GPUs to consoles for peanuts. What's the price of a console hardware now, 200 dollars?

Ok this is a very shortsighted post. Do you really believe Nvidia didn't attempt a bid? Besides the console win for AMD is more about better libraries for AMD architecture than for profit.

Oh they bid. But they wanted money. I guess they didn't care for peanuts.

I believe Intel looked at the deal too, but AMD was the only one who could meet the need for the price they were willing to pay...and it is not looking like they are gaining much from it. Though historically I don't think any one made much off console hardware save for Nvidia doing alright on the original Xbox...nothing to jump about though.
