Kavari will be a good revenue generator but without an AM3+ Steamroller successor, AMD has shot themselves in the foot with no desktop upgrade path for two or more years. They continue to stumble as they move forward but at this rate they are never going to get themselves into a strong market position.

Good move to see some profit finally. Now just bring FX to FM2+ to unite the platforms as the AM3+ is now dead in the water. Movement in the right direction at least.

Kaveri is a good chip, but I don't really see it making such an impact as to be a revenue generator. Unless mantle not only provides SIGNIFICANT performance gains, but also gains rapid and widespread developer focus this year. Without that, I don't see a compelling argument for major revenue gains in a shrinking desktop form factor market. I like kaveri, but honestly, for my next build, I'm leaning towards an Intel+AMD system.

Down 11% already on the day.. looks like you can meet your own guidance but not the investors (no matter how crazy/illogical) and you'll get hit hard. AMD's lack of a clear coherent mobile strategy is choking it's future even as chip sales shrink and gpu sales fluctuate. The boost from xbox one and ps4 chip sales is good but they need to start putting chips into mobile phones, tablets, and other electronics FAST before the AMD dream is put to bed for good.

[Full disclosure: I own this stock and am a reasonable fan of ATI/AMD products and their spunky company (see my system specs :) ]

While they moved a lot of APU's in terms of volume for game consoles, the profit margins on those are razor thin--that's why Nvidia dropped out of supporting game consoles. You can say they moved ~7m APU's in 2 months for those consoles, but when they are making next to nothing on each one (or worse, recouping R&D costs) it really doesn't help them much. I do agree they need something for Tablets\Phones. I think the problem is they just don't have the resources to make a serious stab at it.
