AMD has filed for bankruptcy and has sought Chapter 11 protection after it had revealed that it was sustained mostly by institutionalised, systematic, and well-planned accounting fraud.

After learning about this Intel bought AMD for an undisclosed amount of money, rumoured to be 10 billion dollars.

Intel said they would retain all of AMDs 18,000 employees.


The war is over! Rejoice!

More about : omg intel buy amd

There are those of us who realize that Dell just pumped a bunch of cash into AMD. Now with HP, Dell, Sun And IBM they are the second soucre for X86 and FIRST SOURCE for X64 servers.

MS just made X64 a staple in PCs by stating that X64 will be in their apps by next year.

Good joke, though. I bet some folks had heart attacks.

I knew it was BS as soon as I saw the subject, but I was kinda interested in reading a good fabricated story.

Oh well, the link was only to the Inquirer's website with no story.
May 26, 2006 12:51:55 AM

i wouldnt believe anything that came from that site.

LOL; that's funny. It's the best laugh I've had all since I woke this morning and saw my hair in the mirror :oops: 
May 26, 2006 1:19:26 AM

You did this to piss off mike didn't you :lol:  ? Man he is going to get his I.P. banned by Fredi if he doesn't stop his nonsense. Does he really think anyone will take him seriously when he acts like that?
May 26, 2006 1:23:21 AM

Im sure he has already been IP banned. He is probably going through a proxy. Regardless, Action Man probably just tried to see if he could get him to make a new account already since his last account (created today) has already been banned.

That boy has some serious issues. He really needs to get some help.

It would have been better if you said AMD bought 40% of Intel's stock with a loan from Dell and cancelled the Conroe.
May 26, 2006 2:13:16 AM

See thats unbelieveable, my story was believeable and funny.

I was waiting for someone to pick up on that. :lol:

Not really, just for laughs. I was thinking of taking it way further but decided the effort required wasn't worth it, perhaps if I do another joke thread I will.

I wanted to do that but it was too much effort and I lack the tools.

Nah hes easy to spot regardless. He draws attention to himself.

My quote section was mainly taken from the wikipedia articles on enron and AMD.

Does anybody have the corporate headquarters address of TheEnquirer? I'm going to go in with an AR10 and mow down every last editor...

Action Man, i think your brain is seriously damaged with overclocking. Find a better cooler if you want to survive on this forum.
May 26, 2006 6:40:45 AM

I think Action man been shock by a 650watt power supply. But to see 1000 or more people look at the tread was funny.
May 26, 2006 7:09:59 AM

This is stupider than an inside joke spread over the web.


Get a napkin kid, yer drooling on your lap again.

May 26, 2006 7:26:17 AM

Dont listen to the haters Action Man I thought it was funny as hell :)  the only reason they got upset is they beleived it for a second hehehehe

Although one good thing would come of it if it was true :)  IF and thats a big if. AMD and Intel's engineers could work together on an awesome CPU I think they could come up with something fantastic. But odds are that they would just "synergy" the life out of any competitive spirit they had :(  Anyway I liked this thread :)

Sure, you could use an AR10, but it would be far more l337 if you used an AK47.

:lol:  :lol:  :lol:  You got me there!

Although Im not in favor of etheir side, still if this is true then that would be really sucks. Because now then, pretty much Intel is the only one selling cpu and then they raise the price and we will be all f*cked.

It's funny though.....

Shut up.

Made me giggle, the funny part is though that actually do it. Theyy put money into AMD's stocks before they release something big, and then sell when they have skyrocketed. IIRC then Intel do it with a few companies.

Google is planning on lauching a cpu to work together with their GoogleOS. Then Intel and AMD will join to fight google's domination

You evil bastard action figurine! I nearly crapped myself, and i say nearly 'cause if it was a tom's headline i would have.
May 26, 2006 12:43:18 PM

How will they ever get the kiddies off this forum? Neverending useless posts using precious bandwidth by supergeeks who have no life.
There should be rules that require you to be at least 12 to enter this forum, dont ya think? :lol: 
May 26, 2006 1:07:32 PM

I think it's actually rather entertaining that this forum ISN'T just dry technology buffs going back and forth. There's plenty of that elsewhere. The fact that you can come to these forums and LEARN and be ENTERTAINED simultaneously makes it more unique.

Having been a tech for 12 years I've had enough dry boring-ness to last me ...the rest of my life. I'm glad I can stop by these forums and LEARN AND BE ENTERTAINED

...P.S. Since I'm a noob I can get away with caps for this one and only post.
May 26, 2006 1:49:08 PM

When I saw the title, I thought someone got some accounting docs and showed a # of Opterons to be put in a new Intel Datacenter ;) 

Now that's believable :) 

After all, hotmail ran on Unix for god knows how long...

It's a good rumor starter though. Soon you'll see articles like, "Rumors of Intel to buy AMD abound." on Hexus and Anandtech.
May 26, 2006 5:31:19 PM

AMD isnt even nearly worth as much as 10 billion :wink:
May 26, 2006 5:57:43 PM

Can you link to the actual article on the Inquirer? I didn't see it anywhere on the Inq's home page that you linked to.

You know what? This is very believable. More believable than Reverse Hyperthreading anyway. I bet this is how those rumors spread too...
