AMD always lost more money then it made which doesn’t make any business sense. How can a company keep existing if it always loses money?

The same way that our nation (America) survives. Loans, and spending more than you have while still selling.

You just tell the investors that your stock is simply undervalued and that you have a solid product which will take off if given enough time.


Essentially, you lie!

Intel did not post a loss for Q4 they were down 90% from Q3 but they still had a net profit of ~$240 million. Do a little bit of fact checking.

The question now we should be asking is when will AMD ask for TARP bail out?

Hopefully the Phenom II release buys AMD enough time to release the proper fusion platform, which should restore their performance lead.

AMD has a lot longer to go to reclaim that title my friend. They will, however, tighten their grip on the value end of things.

If fusion lives up to its potential, which is almost latency free communication between the processor and graphics processor, Intel should not be able to match it.

Of course, whilst AMD almost always has the better technology they mess up its implementation.
