Yeah lay your fears to rest people, other MFGs have A LOT riding on Bulldozer. (specifically MB & RAM MFGs, not to mention cooling mfgs)

The only speculation that remains is, will it beat Sandy Bridge?

I'm hoping that Bulldozer is a huge success personally, we need it to be!

But, if a leak doesn't come out soon there will be TOO much speculation and then if it doesn't deliver it could very well spell the end of AMD because...

a) AMD has been in financial troubles for a long time..
(Intel's bail out/settlement didn't solve the issue..)

b) AMD still has a lot of debt and they aren't earning enough..

c) The APUs were not that huge of a success enough for them to continue maybe?

------------------------------------------------------------------

It's very possible that the CEO could have resigned for any # of good reasons.

a) Was forced to quite due to discrepancies on his part..
b) Wanted to truly retire..
c) Had an emergency & was forced to retire early. (like health problems)

Anyone think this might actually be a GOOD thing for investors?

Looking at it in a positive light: AMD launches a new chip, starts doing well..getting rid of old management at the same time shows an organization that's making moves and headed in a new direction?

So the old management gets rewarded for doing well by getting "fired"

Instead of pulling stuff out of your mouth, you should research a bit. Derk Meyer was doing and did a phenomenal job, it is sad to see him leave AMD. Also, a sudden resignation of a good CEO results in shocks to equity prices due to the negative news associated with it. How is that a good thing for investors?

It seems to me that he didn't really have a choice but to resign.

Judging from the Board of Directors spokesperson who says they wanted a change in leadership.
