AMD's gross margin rose to 44 percent in Q4, up from 41 percent in the third quarter and just 36 percent in Q4 2006. Revenue in the company's Computing Solutions group rose to $1.4 billion (up nine percent over Q3). Microprocessor revenues grew by 11 percent, overall microprocessor shipments were up seven percent, and server shipments grew by 22 percent. AMD attributed the dramatic rise in server shipments to strong interest in the company's quad-core products
It's one long chain of "The next big thing, we promise!" with AMD. Not impressed.
AMD is not the saints, they have made mistakes.
My hope for the Swedish Intel FAN boys is that AMD went busted, and they
have to pay 1000 USD or more for their precious Intel CPU's.
But I am afraid that they have no brains to figure that out ...
AMD isnt going anywhere anytime soon.
Aye, I don't know how much of the $5.4bil they still need to pay off for ATI but this Quater was nearly $1.8bil and I think last quarter was a nice chunk as well. Hopefully not too many quaters of that to dilute the real number.
Only time will tell if Ruiz was brilliant or rather an imbecile for driving the ATI purchase.
