AMD will never go away, they will return this summer and pull back ahead of Intel garbage!
Hahah. You wish. At this rate AMD will be out of cash in six months.
They can save a bit of cash by firing the entire management team now and hiring someone with half a brain to take over.
Hmmm do you know anything about cash flow? Did you listen to the earnings release call?
AMD has the cash, but they will likely raise some more because once they hit around 600M in cash they get a bit uncomfortable.
Cash flow is an issue, but there are ways to remedy it.
ATI notoriously doesn't produce significant net income because of the lower margins. Also, the R600 won't be out until the 2nd 1/2 of May. Don't expect the R600 to save AMD in any way, it will provide a cash flow source, but it won't save AMD's losses.
government would likely subsidize AMD (which I think it already does) and guarantee their debt. If AMD goes under (which it won't) it would leave Intel with a monopoly in the consumer level CPU business and that isn't good.
If anything they will likely file chapter 11 bankruptcy (which I doubt they will have to file for at all) for protection and debt relief while they restructure.
God people stop with this AMD is dead bullshit. You guys are so short sighted. I'm tired of these techy's playing market analysts.
