    Yes does seam that way, after all the laptop and netbook markets are constanly growing also maybe they might be thinking towards tablets. Afterall Tegra is doing well.

    I think in all likelihood we're not far from the end of desktop PCs. They've offered diminishing gains for a while now and it's only really a stalwart business market that's keeping them alive.

    AMD hires bank to explore options

    Could mean massive changes to the desktop PC market. If AMD bow out of making x86 chips Intel become a monopoly. Could make for major changes in the desktop market.

    There's also Microsoft's move to a closed-market, Apple App Store type model with Win 8. The times they are a-changing.

    I remember a few years ago when it seemed AMD were the coming thing and Intel were in the doldrums - can they turn it around, or is this the start of their death spiral? Does appointing a bank to "explore options" (which has been widely reported, hence this thread) mean investors will lose all confidence in them?

    I don't understand AMD at all, when they bought ATI I thought I'd see them try merge the graphics card and processor into 1 chip, I thought they'd try a hand at the mobile space. But it seems they've spent the last few years having a great go at making graphics cards while everyone else ventured into new areas with far more potential for growth.

    Isn't that what the Wii U is, likely next Xbox as well and even the PS4.

    I couldn't name you a recent AMD processor off the top of my head. Do they even make it into consumer products now?. If they are poor performers can't be any worse than the ancient Intel stuff you still see being sold. I suppose Intel could be selling cheap so AMD have no market.

    Maybe they have something good in the works that takes a lot of investment and time. Hard to imagine what else they have been doing.

    Intel by themselves would be frightening.

    An Intel monopoly would be awful.
    Good products but no competition would turn them to maximising profits over progress

    Always interesting to read Charlie Demerjian's takes on AMD
