Either way I doubt its due to the performance of any future tech.
In fact, Bobcat is hitting it big as we speak with HP dm1z.
Intel is in the weeds over the Sata chip set Issue, causing Hp to miss its netbook launch this week. Mean while AMD is slipping in from behind gaining HP's interest with the Dm1z.
I think AMD Is Cleaning house. Bout time if you ask me.
Bobcat could very well move to corner this market..
If Bulldozer is huge, we could see a serious gain in market shares for AMD indeed!
This is what I hope, ^ AMD, goodbye Intel... (if that's possible)...
Lower prices for all, SIGN ME UP ON THAT BAND WAGON
This really boils down to 1 of 2 scenarios..
1) These guys received their bonuses (Got Paid Well) and are either looking to move on to better opportunities or retirement.
2) AMD is bringing down the axe, e.g., Downsizing, Rightsizing, or cleaning house as they say...
That's pretty much the bottom line, all other possibilities would be too speculative...
If scenario 1 is true, watch for falling stock prices in the near future...
(E.G. Corporate officer payout usually has an impact on stock values)
If scenario 2 is true, watch for rising stock prices in the near future..
(e.g. Rightsizing is all the rage, however note this also hides financial failures too!)Edited by _GTech - 2/9/11 at 10:21am
