Okay. AMD is not like completely broke or anything. Even if they didn't buy ATi it'd make no difference, they CPUs aren't as good an Intels (depending on which comparison) so they would be down anyway. Anywho, back on it. If anyone IBM is the best choice to buy them.
'bout time.

Yup, Lenovo owns IBM Computer Hardware side. IBM still exists but in a Service/Consulting/Chip making way. So IBM can still buy AMD if they have the cash leftover from selling their retail computer side.

stil i think if anyone is gonna buy them maybe a rebranding or a complete restructure would be in order to try to facilitate a better image of themselves and not just a "UNDER NEW MANAGEMENT" sign sort of thing lol

lol....Intel stock holders FTW!

If Samsumg does buy AMD, I don't think AMD would 'become' Samsung. The AMD name would probably be kept, as would the staff. However, Samsung is a very large, and very good quality company. They have loads of cash, and would not hesitate to pour it in to R & D. That may be the re-birth as AMD. Still a small(ish) chip maker with big-time support.

fixed. hopefully what you posted was a joke. this is how the stock market works! if AMD gets bought out. EVERYONE buys...BOTH AMD AND samsung (or i guess just samsung stock) AMD holders get incentives because they own more value for their shares and visa versa. dividends would be paid and with the extra stock at no charge to the shareholder they may reinvest even more.

with healthy profits from samsung (makes TONS of stuff) the stock will continue a growth trend, even after the initial UPROAR and then selling off of shares to get insane profits, faster than a blue chip and not too good to be true. a true 'growth stock'



it can only be a good thing for the conglomerate, and investors although samsung is the winner in the long term.
