I think Intel would pounce and eat them and ATI up, get broken by the justice department, and we would have 3 companies making GPU's! (again)

More about : amd bankrupt

Which 3 companies? AMD owns ATI, so what are you saying? Are you thinking that AMD would spin off the GPU department back to what was formally know as ATI? I don't think so. And currently there is only 2 right now, nVidia and AMD. If AMD went bankrupt than there would only be 2 major descrete manufacturers, maybe, and that would be AMD and nVidia still.
January 2, 2008 1:57:37 AM

I don't think OEMs, justice department, FTC, EU, and other corporate / government entities will allow AMD to go bankrupt. There is too much to risk for AMD to disappear from the market.
January 2, 2008 2:00:21 AM

Not going to happen.
First off, AMD isn't even really running a deficit. They are hiding a lot of income by buying back thier own shares.
They are selling ever chip they make.
On the other hand, if things did go really wrong, The could go into recievership, seek bancruptcy protection, pay off thier debts on pennies on the dollar, and just keep keeping on.
They have a huge pile of assets that have been depreciated to zero, but have huge resale value.
AMD aint going nowhere for a long time.

There are already "three GPU companies":

1. ATI
2. nVidia
3. Intel - yeah integrated, but they make up the vast majority of video chips currently sold

Except the Phenom 9700s. And the Barcies. And most of the 9600 and 9500s produced, judging by the number of actuall owner reviews.

Thats what you meant, right?

AMD has been in this financial situation before and have come out alright. I can't see them disappearing anytime soon. I won't be too surprised if they did go bankrupt though.

What are you talking about? Your statement makes no sense. If AMD were to financially implode the justice department, FTC, and EU will not be able to do anything.

Bankruptcy does not automatically mean the company will die. It will go into receivership, and payoff their creditors. AMD will only be dissolved if it can no longer earn enough net revenue to payoff their creditors. At that point AMD will die. The creditors will sell off AMD's assets to recover as much money as possible.

The FTC may or may not allow Intel and nVidia purchase the CPU / GPU assets, but if no other company is willing to step up to the plate to buyout the assets (both intellectual & physical), then that could be a remote possibility.

One thing for sure is if AMD were to file for bankruptcy, the share price will plummet, turning AMD into essentially a penny stock company. This will be bad for the investors, but it doesn't really have any impact on AMD itself. This would be an opportunity for AMD to buy back large amounts of shares to turn itself into a private company in the extreme case. Depending on the number of outstanding shares it also allows another company to acquire a majority ownership of AMD stock and take over the company (debt and all), but this is unlikely.

Sadly, AMD/ATI is now worth around what ATI used to be before it was acquired by AMD. In my opinion, it is the GPU division (ATI) that will be carrying AMD for a while until it can get it's CPU division back on track.
January 2, 2008 2:25:50 AM

The assets of the company are worth something. Physical and intellectual assets.

If things get really bad, one of our Asian friends (Sammy, Sony, Toshiba, Hitachi et al) would snap up the assets just to become a bigger player in the market and to prevent somebody else (Intel) from controlling the market segment and limiting the buying company's profit margins. These days I suspect that somebody would be Sammy, but ya never know.

Outside of the competition, there is always a good ole USA investment banker type.

AMD can declare Bankruptcy, but the assets of the company are not going to disappear.

Remember, without AMD we would be waiting for that new Pentinium 1 that will be hitting the market in 2012.
January 2, 2008 2:34:55 AM

actually, i think the result will be similar to what happened between microsoft/apple. Intel is in no mood to get sued for being a monopoly, so chances are, they will throw money at amd. Enough money to keep the company limping along, but not enough to make them a threat in any way. It would be better than being broken apart. Microsoft did that with apple a while back, but apple (i think) has since bought back all the shares microsoft owned.
January 2, 2008 2:44:22 AM

I think it's a more logical choice that Nvidia would buy them. It would get them into processors (which they want) and they could part out ATI eliminating their top competition.

AMD is big, and necessary, enough that the worst that'd happen (near term) is they'd file for Chapter 13 reorg. And fore sure they'd get that along with government subsidies.

As far as nVidia buying AMD? The resultant company would effectively have a monopoly for graphics cards. So that wouldn't be allowed unless ATI were spun off as part of the deal. Now... If you were nVidia's CEO, would you really want to take the gigantic stone from your primary competitor's neck and place it around your own???
January 2, 2008 11:39:57 AM

Actually Nvidia would only have the discrete graphics card monopoly. Intel has the largest market share with there IGP's. And Intel does plan to move into the discrete market anyway.

I don't think Nvidia would have a problem argueing that they wouldn't be a monopoly.
January 2, 2008 12:16:10 PM

Bankruptcy for AMD seems unlikely at the moment, but would be a sad result. I think AMD plays a vital role in keeping the competition going. Look at all the processors that came out from both Intel and AMD due to the competition in recent years. Sure they are snapping at each other's throats but their new products and slashed prices are really doing the consumer some good. I wish Microsoft had some good competition for their sorry excuse of a Windows line.

On the Apple subject, it wouldn't surprise me if a huge portion of their profits are from Ipods and the other trendy gadgets they sell?

AMD Phenom is a disappointment and the Bug has made things worse. If AMD can release the higher clocked Phenoms without the bug they might be in for a chance. I don't think it's over for AMD because they have bounced back before.

I doubt that would happen because if the Apple OS could can be purchased for any compatible system like Windows, Apple computers would pretty much become pointless. With Microsofts stranglehold on the market, it could be a disaster for Apple to compete. At least presently Apple can pass their systems off as something exclusive and unique.

That's my take on it anyway :)

IF AMD were to find the need to file for bankruptcy, and that's a big IF, the government would step in to ensure their stability and keep them in business.

AMD is largely having financial issues due to the ATI M&A, and people seem to forget that a reasonable ROI for a merger/buy out of that size is 3-5 years. It's only been about 2 years since AMD sealed the deal with ATI. Remember that AMD was looking at being in the black 4Q 2007 or 1Q 2008 prior to the Phenom TLB bug. So, all things considered, if it takes AMD until the end of 2008 to get in the black, they are not as bad off as some zealots would make them out to be.

I agree that the recent issues with Barcelona and Phenom have not helped, but you can't deny if the ATI buy-out did not happen, AMD's financial outlook would be very different from where it is today.

At this point, a lot seems to be riding on the B3 revision.

January 2, 2008 1:59:32 PM

Think I'll clarify my points of view on processors and why I chose the brand I use. When it comes down to it, I could give two **** about 3dmark scores, or most any synthetic benchmark. What I care about is playable FPS in games, which more influenced by GPU. And, decent results in application real world usage. When it comes to that, AMD's Phenom processor performance isn't as disappointing as it is made out to be. Especially in instances where multi threading is used to take advantage of more than 1 or 2 cores. No it,s not an Intel killer though, and the software market needs to start moving to take advantage of more cores. Also note, that I don't care what a processor can do overclocked, unless its one that is specifically meant to be overclocked, such as the black edition AMD chips or Extreme edition Intel chips that have unlocked multipliers.

I also care more about the platform that the system is based on. Right now, I like AMD's platform, the 790FX chipset, though at this juncture I'm almost wondering if I should of waited for the SB700 revisions. But, what other platform can you put 3 or 4 video cards in crossfire on? And at this point I think it has more future upgrade potential than other offerings.

To the topic at hand though. I doubt AMD will go down soon, they'll most likely not see any great products coming from the till they get back up though. The GPU division will be carrying the CPU division till then. And on a possible conspiracy theory note. I almost wonder if AMD isn't intentionally trying to devalue their stock so they can buy up all the delinquent shares at the reduced price. Then as soon as they have all of them, and no longer have to worry about someone else buying them up. They could either go back to being a privately traded company, or, release something that actually does well to bring the stock value up, and start selling publicly again.

Also I'm sure if it comes down to it, you'll see a lot more governments giving them grants or money to keep them around to provide tech jobs in the area's where their fabs are.

technically, AMD can go bankrupt and best case is to have it broken apart into separate companies controlled by different corporations.
January 2, 2008 3:30:07 PM

Tell you what, let's everybody cough up $130 or so and buy an AMD 5000+ BE. Then we can all have done a small part to keep AMD alive, have the current best cpu that AMD currently makes, and then we can say that it wasn't our fault if things go bad. Of course, for the comparitively small number of sales that we would make, it might stave off problems for AMD for a day or two, but we can say we tried. Anybody think that's really going to happen? :lol:  :pt1cable:

If you read the THG article about it you would know that the fix can be disabled and the 9500 actually offers better performance per dollar than the Q6600. Whoda known?

EDIT: I've been looking for the article to post a link but I cant find it. Must not have been thg. Can someone help me out with the link?


Yes, I've heard too much of Phenom. In my opinion the 5000+ BE is the best cpu that AMD currently makes. The 5000+ BE can be overclocked to 3300-3500 mhz on air. How far can a Phenom be overclocked and remain stable, or not outright crash? In the various benches that I've seen, the Phenom falls behind when matched against a fair number of the AM2 chips.

Yes, Tom's did an article where it showed that core for core, a Phenom could best an underclocked 6000+ chip.
http://www.tomshardware.com/2007/12/19/amd_phenom_athlo...

That's right, Tom's had to underclock the 6000+ to 2600 mhz to get it to perform badly enough that the Phenom could beat it. If the 6000+ had been running at its stock speed of 3000 mhz, it should have beaten Phenom handily. Since the 5000+ Be can be overclocked to 3300-3500 mhz, it should beat the Phenom even more, and this is why I consider the 5000+ BE as AMD's best currecnt chip.

Besides all this, I thought you were an AMD fan. I'd think you'd be happy that there is an AMD chip out there that performs halfway decent.

Mind elaborating why the government would step into the picture to ensure AMD remains solvant?

1. AMD doesn't have that large of a workforce where if everyone was suddenly lost thier job the unemployment rate would be negatively impacted in a substancial way.

2. The products which AMD provides do not negatively affect a large number of both general consumers and business, financially speaking. As an example, if a large bank like Citibank were to be on the brink of collapse from the sub-prime crysis then the government would step in because:

a. A significant percentage of the US population would loose their savings. (The gov't only insures up to $100k in the savings account.)
b. Many people would loose thier mortgage, thus they can no longer payoff the debt on thier homes and become homeless.
c. Business relies on the credit extended by Citibank to finance thier operations. Thus, the collapse of Citibank can cause a substancial number to companies across all industries to cut back on thier operation. This in turn means higher unemployee.
d. The failure of a large bank will also have substantial negative impact in the financial market which will cause a rippling effect across all industries.

AMD's demise will affect some OEMs and their own employees. But it will not have a substantial rippling effect across the entire economy. The local economies will be somewhat affected, but it will definitely not have a national effect.

Were AMD to suddenly implode, I really, really doubt the government would step in. If Intel suddenly makes a grab for AMD's CPU intellectual and physical assets and nVidia makes a sudden grab for ATI's aassets, then the FTC would step in and say no because that would means both the CPU and GPU market would become a monopoly.

An interest spin would be if Intel were to grab ATI's assets and nVdia were to grab AMD's CPU assets. You will still still have competition in both the CPU and GPU market between Intel and nVidia. But I don't really see that happening.

Quote:
Bank of America analyst Sumit Dhanda is projecting anything but a happy New Year for AMD.

The analyst in a research note Monday, kicked off 2008 by downgrading AMD to “sell” and projected “more pain ahead.” Dhanda’s rating change comes amid a broader call on the semiconductor industry, but AMD took the brunt of the hit.

Here’s Dhanda’s argument:

It can get worse and Barcelona isn’t a savior. Dhanda says that AMD is likely to lose more market share. The analyst writes:

Irrespective of whether AMD will be able to deliver on its promise to ramp the much-delayed Barcelona platform in volumes by 1Q08/2Q08, we believe Barcelona will do very little to stem the share losses AMD will likely witness in servers and desktops vs. Intel’s more competitive line-up.

Add it up and AMD shares are expected to get whacked in 2008 even though the stock fell 62 percent in 2007.

AMD’s costs are too high. Higher material costs and depreciation are likely to put the kibosh on profitability, says Dhanda. On the parts front, Dhanda notes that quad-core components are more expensive. This point is notable since it implies that quad-core chips from AMD won’t command enough of a premium to offset an increase in component inflation.

AMD’s current profit target is too optimistic for 2008. Dhanda expects a motherboard correction and a weaker than expected first half outlook.

I had a Pentium I 90 Mhz processor that had a floating point bug.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pentium_FDIV_bug

It happens... didn't change my opinion of the company and to the best of my knowledge it didn't cause my any harm... be it direct or indirect. That system was a beast at playing Ultima 7... and honestly, that's all I cared about. As best I understand the AMD "bug" (or whatever you want to call it) can be left uncorrected without any consequences for a vast majority of the users out there. Why are people making such a big deal out of this? Had Phenom come out early or even on time, I imagine this wouldn't have been made into such a huge issue, but because of the delays some people seem to have been expecting perfect silicon.

While I hope it will happen as you said, but I'm sure FTC and EU will come up with something to accuse Intel of monopolistic behavior. Even if AMD imploded, no one would simply let AMD slip away.

Bankruptcy does not automatically mean the company will die. It will go into receivership, and payoff their creditors. AMD will only be dissolved if it can no longer earn enough net revenue to payoff their creditors. At that point AMD will die. The creditors will sell off AMD's assets to recover as much money as possible.

I believe AMD will probably be heavily subsidized by government (Germany? New York?), and companies a like, before it goes belly up. No one wants a single company to rule the entire market. OEMs have just learned the benefit of having AMD around, and that is to keep Intel's pricing in check. So for now, AMD won't go away in a while, but it will remain a distant second from Intel.


Sadly, AMD/ATI is now worth around what ATI used to be before it was acquired by AMD. In my opinion, it is the GPU division (ATI) that will be carrying AMD for a while until it can get it's CPU division back on track. said:

Hopefully Hector is smart enough to give its GPU division more R&D money, for now. At the moment, AMD do not have any competitive CPU product on the market (Barcelona won't be ready until Q1, or even Q2). IMO, K10 is more or less a failed design, that lacks too many important features. They need to refocus on their next architecture, Bulldozer, if they want to take off as a CPU company again. With Harpertown/Yorkfield/Wolfdale launching very soon, and Nehalem on the horizon, AMD will likely fall further behind. It is very crucial for them to rethink their position on the market, and open new markets.

January 2, 2008 5:35:47 PM

The German Government has already pumped 320Million into AMd to keep it going. You also have to think of the number of servers that AMD services. Consumer products are not the only thing it has its hand in. Consider embedded products, special oem devices, servers, , military products, super computers etc all have to be serviced and upgraded with AMD processors on a world wide basis. sometimes a company is to big or important to allow them to fail. The cost of failure(to the business community it serves) is greater than the cost to prop them up and subsidize them. The U.S does it more than you realize.
January 2, 2008 5:41:51 PM

I want to answer the question what if? It seems that evey thread in the cpu section has at least one reply with the same warning that we better hope that AMD never goes tits up because then intel will go back to selling netburst chips for $5K a pop while banging our wives with the our kids watching, or something to that effect.

I think that what most people miss is that Intel will always have competition, namely from itself. People will want a reason to upgrade. If they are not offered a superior product than the one that they have, there is no reason to buy. If the prices are not attractive enough then people won't buy in enough volume for Intel to grow.

That being said, I don't think there will be any long period of time when Intel has no competition. If AMD were to die, something would fill the void, most likely an AMD carcuss + some top tech firm hybred.
