    This made me lol.
    Employee loyalty to a company went down the crapper years ago when companies stopped being loyal to their employees.

    Nvidia has spent 1/4th of its net worth on mobile investment this year alone. After spending that much you'd hope you get a foot or a toe in the door. The question is the door gonna close on you if you dont keep pace with Samsung, Qualcomm and your other competitors. If it doesnt work out for them they will drop just as fast as AMD or faster. Both have been in a downward spiral since late 200?s.

    AMD is more than likely to stick it out with the APU until its dead and Nvidia is more then likely to be gobbled up by a Microsoft or Google in a buyout if there debt catches up to them.

    Mid August we will know if the AMD slow down also effected Nvidia or not since they are do with there report.

    AMD just needs this (memory erase device, not Will Smith)

    link, or is this another product of your imagination like the " MS didn't buy Nvidia for $3bn" thoughts? Considering Nvidia has in excess of $3bn in cash reserves, seems a little weird. :rolleyes:
    Nice one. Xzibit's joke observation of the week. What debt? You seem to be confusing Nvidia's balance sheet with AMD's.

    No one can buy AMD till 2014/2015... AMD gets bought the x86 license gets void. <-- (and all AMD patents belong to Intel)

    A simple Google would do you wonders.

    Microsoft did have the right to buy Nvidia first with the SEC.

    I found for being on an enthusiast forum some of you are really lazy to do research. Do you just like being spoon feed your information.

    Another small differance is % of the company in stock
    AMD = 60
    Nvidia = 70

    Well fuck me, the rats are jumping ship. Sad to see a once valiant competitor going downhill so fast. I can't say that they aren't bringing this on themselves, but this is in no way good for the consumer.

    Old news that doesn't mean what you think it means.
    How does:
    "The deal gives Microsoft the exclusive right to match any offer for 30% or more of Nvidia's outstanding shares by a third-party" equal
    Thats $US3.4bn for a baseline of 30% of the shares IF another party attempted to acquire those shares and likely trigger a takeover bid

    As for the rest of your posting...you're right - some of you are really lazy...or just trolling. Too close to call.


    Maybe you'd be better served putting your over active imagination to work on the topic at hand...namely AMD's brain drain.

    They said that for Hector Ruiz as well it didn't happen.

    AMD doesn't simply die it's a cockroach that keeps coming back stronger than ever.

    Not a nice analogy. Cockroaches eat each other and survive on garbage.

    The difference between profit and profit margin also escapes people but that's for another thread.

    The reason it was included in the report is to advise investors and shareholders. Kind of required by law to give a heads up if they are shopping for a buyer at which time it felt important enough to include in the report. A K.Y.A.
