I would guess that fusion will be incredibly effective in mobile devices. Though I am fairly sure that it will never be able to compete with discrete graphics on the desktop.

Only AMD will know the real reason behind this. From what we have been told though (and from what I have read) it is mostly for Fusion and anything that may spawn from it.

As far as I know, their CPU's and GPU's are still dealt with separately. Part ownership of GF may have changed this, but we may not find out. Maybe they still have something worked out, that will help them down the road, not sure.

Lol...stock holder who flips often (also a frequent Nvidia before ya'll complain)

1.)Check (current set of stocks already in place)
2.)Check
3.)not yet, I have faith (but will mitigate losses and reduce owned value if needed)
4.)Waiting patiently
5.)see above
6.)hoping

It came as a shock to me personally, I think the guy has done great for the company - and I think his strategy was spot on concerning mobile chips and their profitability for AMD (not in general - and not AMD in the future - but from where AMD was and AMD is currently). I think the Fusion line was a step in the right direction - and I think in time they would be there with the rest of them.

Nvidia's recent tie in both with Intel, and their own x86 with ARM based architecture is brilliant on their parts - but they're already solid in the mobile market. ARM is overpriced still I think personally.

I've read a bunch of articles on this over the last few days, and the drop that has occurred (like under 2% for me personally) and the recent slight comeback is reassuring. The BEST piece I read highlighted a very RELEVANT fact - look WHO canned the guy. Stupid BOD! These guys have VERY little to do with AMD, with very little interest (besides the ego-centric self images). They SAY the represent the stock-holders (and in nature they should also represent all us clients and their own employees...but....they only meet a couple of times a year.

How can any small group of people, who only meet a couple of times a year - can a guy who's in the trenches every single frickin day - a man of the "team"? Even if the majority of stockholders and employees felt the same, I do think you'd hear mad rumors and rumblings calling for his ouster..and I myself did not hear these (although like other members - the lack of mobile vision has been a constant nag). But he took a stand....Fusion, GPU's, server market - ALL of which they have made great strides in over the last 24-36 months. Stock prices recovered and have been relatively stable. And now a bunch of outsiders, who are paid big bucks, who probably know less about the company than most people posting on this thread (minus the "numbers" they read on a sheet of paper) - make a drastic decision on the world's second largest semiconductor manufacturer (consumer based)....mind numbing...........

Speaking of mind numbing stupid banter from the mass media...APU's be damned - you'll have to pry my separate stand-alone PCB based GPU's from my cold dead fingers before I go with your "APU" solutions.

Edit 1 - I currently own a total of 5 GPU's and 3 CPU's from this company (no Green no Blue), I do put my money and my practice where my mouth is. I'm #2 on our BOINC team powered by team red. Only CPU I own outside of AMD is my TI in my Android phone. The minute there's an AMD chip in a phone...yes, I will own it.

Edit 2 - pay me $100K and their "search" for a CEO will be over...I'll right this ship baby! Cheap labor from old Gilly! Or, they can just employ me in general and I'd be happy.
