No matter how bad AMD is doing now, they are one of the greatest things to have ever happened to the x86 hardware industry. First to break 1GHz on a processor, first multi core processor die, first integrated high speed point to point bus interconnects, first to integrate important portions of processing into the die (integrated memory controller), and first to fully integrate graphics cores into a processor die for both graphical use and general computing. Hate AMD for the products they have now all you want, but they revolutionized the computer hardware industry multiple times

That would be a good start.
Lisa Su isn't going to work for minus 150.000 USD a year.
Who is going to do work if they have to pay to do it rather than get paid... !!!

Last time I checked they are suppposed to be a "for profit" company, hanging their hat on what they did 10, 15, 20 years ago isn't going to pay the bills due today, tomorrow and next year. If being extremely narrowminded means looking ahead instead of the past, than guilty as charged.

Are driver issues that bad? I haven't had any driver related issues since 2x4890s...

They're not, but it seems to be a trump card here on the forums.

Since NVIDIA isn't on the verge of bankruptcy, there's not going to be much news on them until Pascal is closer to its release date. AMD on the other hand... yeah.

People seem to brush under the rug that Nvidia has had massive driver problems for 6-8 months now, maybe even longer. Pretty sure we still don't even have a SLI capable driver on Windows 10 because it just gets a memory leak and things start crashing right now.

Good job missing the entire point of the post.

They need to invest some money in marketing. The general launch of the Fiji cards was piss-poor in this respect. That stage unveil of the Fiji cards with Lisa Su was completely amateurish a few months back. Things like that would never happen at other tech companies. I wish for them to rise from the ashes though, don't get me wrong.

To be fair lots of dead companies have revolutionised a lot of industries.

Especially in the technology sector, almost any company with an R&D budget has "revolutionised" something at some stage.
