Intel's been working hard to deliver the goods, and this record just proves how far hard work can go.

Now Intel, start making GPU's that are up to par with Nvidia and AMD and you will have the revenue flying in.

Yes, Intel, please kill remaining competitors and own us good and hard, like in 90th.
Oh, and we really appreciate that you've already started it, by killing overclocking on all, but K series of Sandy Bridge...

Over-clockers make up less than 1% of Intel's customer base. Over-clocking is a fun hobby, but it provides small gains in performance that 99% of the market does not benefit from. So having a few CPU's to choose from that are over-clock-able is not bad. You still have last gen to over-clock and the upcoming enthusiast processors to look forward to.

Yeah...I am now convinced AMD will never catch up, unless 2 generations straight of intel are "phenoms" or "netburst", and Nvidia's ARM CPU's are a horrible mess, as well as 1 generation of their GPU's. However, the best hope i see for AMD is when they get all their fabs up and running, as well as perhaps if ARM becomes the architecture of choice. That might just make things a clean slate for everyone.

They are pretty good at lying, cheating and stealing their way to the top. Why not when all you have to do is settle with the people you stole from for pennies on the dollar and then rake in the profits.

i hope that this could help out AMD some.. if not now, by 2015....


To quote from your cited article:

Quote:
Jon Carvill, the vice president of global communications for Globalfoundries, said the boost in funding will come from the company's existing cash flow as well as from ATIC.

"The relationship between ATIC and AMD works where AMD has the ability to match [ATIC's investment] and they've chose not to at this point in time," Mr Carvill said.


So it looks like AMD is further reducing their GF investment by means of dilution. When GF starts earning profits, AMD's share will be lower.

AMD needs to take out an ARM license and start competing in the cellphone/tablet market. that or the best thing to happen to AMD would be to get bought out by a company with huge capital like Samsung.

fazers_on_stunTo quote from your cited article:So it looks like AMD is further reducing their GF investment by means of dilution. When GF starts earning profits, AMD's share will be lower.


i know, but this also means that they will have more advanced fabrication processes at their disposal. I'm not talking about the profits. Although this still doesn't mean that AMD will be able to use the newer / more advanced fabrication tech that will be available to them through the acquisitions and construction, but it will still be there for them to use, however slightly, and the best thing for them to do is to fight for that small percentage.

Unless, of course, ATIC decides to buyout AMD's share completely, which could happen at anytime. But i don't think that'll happen, or if it does, that means AMD will also be on the way too, because those guys need the capability / engineering prowess that AMD has in order to put GF to full use, and i'm sure that at the moment, they're practically dying to buy AMD itself. I live in the UAE (where ATIC is located) and the general direction for investment is to currently buyout foreign advanced tech and bring it into their homeland, so a very logical step would be to bring AMD as well as ATIC over. And they do have the cash for that, quite easily, whatever the global economy is. They need to do things like this to ensure there will be a stable inflow of non-oil cash, so that by the time the oil runs out, or stops making a profit, they'll be secure....
phew...

Its good news. Hopefully Intel will invest the money to develop the next thing. I believe that we are coming to the close of the PC era and are entering the PD era (which is obvious). New computers not only need to be faster, but also much smaller. We need to have tablet size computers that can do more than a PC can do today. With funding and effort we can accomplish that.

If AMD will be put to the grave Intel will slow down, just look at those "amazing" upgrades they made before the core architecture and the prices they took for them. I'm no fanboy of either camp but i do like to purchase good hardware at a good price, that could change!

The K's of the sandy bridges hints that Intel have started moving from being "nice" to money squeezing again and that's what happens when a single company

Is that what the AMD haters want, higher prices for micro-updates?

otacon72How so? AMD hasn't touched intel in years. If Bulldozer ever comes out...been hearing about it for what 2 years now...it was designed to compete with intels last generation of chips. AMD will forever be at least one generation behind intil from here on out. Before it was spend a little less and get almost the same performance aa intel. Now it's spend a little less for a lot less performance.


Apparently the market took notice and advanced that notion already. From laptop and desktop reports, Intel Pentium Processors typically as the biggest movers for PC's while its i3's for Apple.

Intel is kind of like Apple, enthusiasts swear they're good for the market when in fact they are just a big company and once they can really crush the opposition and gain a dominant place, they'll just charge more money for useless crap.

And if I look at my crystal ball it'll be Intel makes new chip -> new mobos -> over-clocked chips -> newer mobos, intel keeps changing stuff and making you buy more crap.

Are you trying to contradict yourself now? There is no merit in your statement until Bulldozer comes out. Before Sandy Bridge, even with AMD being a generation behind, having to wait a few seconds more for a compression to finish or encoding a movie doesn't mean anything when you are talking 5-10 minutes processing time...on a home desktop computer. It is more important that processes get done sooner in the server market where time matters and depending on server load. That is where IMO AMD shines. In regards to desktop systems, I personally choose value over enthusiast hardware any day! Being able to improve hardware performance not having to buy new mobo and ram every time I turn around is nice. I know it is hard for some to grasp that there is life beyond home computers and gaming...but all I'm saying is try. LOL

So revenue goes up $355M, and profit goes up $433M. Either they are benefitting from efficiencies of scale, or they are beginning to take serious advantage of their superior market position via product tech, relative to AMD. This is like when Apple charges the same high price for the same laptop 3 years after the technology is developed - or when a company charges 1.5 x the price for a newer product that costs the same to produce as an older one. Profit up 15%, while revenue only up 3%.

I'm not an AMD fanboi. I'm a free market competition fanboy. I remember the days when Intel wanted $1000 for something like a 486DX2-66. No thank you.

Stuff like this makes me laugh. Why you ask. Due to the fact that more and more ppl are buying pc's, laptops, tablets, ect. Intel has its hands in all of it, so why wouldn't this be the case. This article shouldn't have been written. Now if intel's quarterly and yearly are down then lets write an article. When you own almost all of the market its hard not to get numbers like that. How about an article talking about all the companies that Intel has contracts with oppose to AMD. That would be a good article....JMO.
