AMD's finances have been on a bit of a roller-coaster lately, but Wedbush Securities Analyst and crystal ball holder extraordinaire Michael Pachter feels that this won't spell trouble for Sony and Microsoft's new consoles.
Hmm so thats why nvidia backed out
If either company does get into trouble, then they'd just sell off the brand. That creates the question: Who would you want to buy Playstation? Who would you want to buy Xbox?
What has this to do with playstation/xbox ^^
Pach said if they were to go out of business, Sony and MS would know this well ahead of time and buy enough chips well in advance so that they could continue production...He also said that by them buying so many all at once, that that would probably give AMD the money it needed to avoid bankruptcy anyway.
What are you talking about? Did you even read the article? It is talking about the possibility of AMD going out of business and its impact on its two major customers: MS and Sony.
I know. I'm just trying to ask a simple question in the chance that any of these companies goes under. No need to freak out.
So, by the Law of Pachter, does this mean that they actually will be in trouble?
Prepare for AMD doom articles. I just got back from the store. I picked up the AMD F-Series 8320 CPU. Only 129.99 (Usually 150 almost everywhere else though). Its an 8 core CPU 3.5 (4.0 Turbo) processor. Its an excellent deal for anyone looking to build a decent rig.
I'm pretty sure that GlobalFoundries actually manufactures the APUs in both consoles, so if AMD dissolved it would probably only hurt the development of revisions and die shrinks.
Wait , are these new finacial reports or old ones , cuz last I heard , AMD was rolling in money cuz of bit/lit/any coin tingy , hell thir gpus go sold out with price 100$ higher then lunch price ?
Jesus is ANYTHING thriving these days? Everythings going under seems like.
michael pachter, I have been hoping you in trouble for a long time.
I don't think they will, but if AMD goes under we're totally screwed as consumers...thatll leave intel and nvidia open to charge any prices they want which nobody wants. Nvidia is already pushing the price ceiling higher for their high end, competition is keeping that from going any higher. I say this as the biggest nvidia fan boy too, exclusively nvidia since the 5700 ultra, with the exception of an x800 pro hand me down when I killed my 6800 gt. And I have a 6 foot vinyl nvidia banner hanging in my living room lol. AMD hits an excellent market, and keeps nvidia and intel honest (somewhat) so hopefully ps4/x1 will help keep them afloat.
