AMD today announced revenue for the third quarter of 2013 of $1.46 billion, operating income of $95 million and net income of $48 million, or $0.06 per share. The company reported non-GAAP operating income of $78 million and non-GAAP net income of $31 million, or $0.04 per share.

"AMD returned to profitability and generated free cash flow in the third quarter as we continued to successfully execute the strategic transformation plan we outlined a year ago," said Rory Read, AMD president and CEO. "We achieved 26 percent sequential revenue growth driven by our semi-custom business and remain committed to generating approximately 50 percent of revenue from high-growth markets over the next two years. Developing industry-leading technology remains at our core, and we are in the middle of a multi-year journey to redefine AMD as a leader across a more diverse set of growth markets."

Yay, they are in the black again. Hopefully they will stay that way.

Don't think so, USA is under a storm, its not time for serious investments. However... time to buy cheap? I like that, AMD from time to time has had several outrageous peaks. If I buy stock now, who knows.. maybe in 2 years or so they will raise?

Didn't they just sell off and lease back one of their big facilities this year? I wonder how that played into their income report...

Two this year. The Austin Campus and the Singapore facility.

The Singapore sell/lease back is included in the Q3 financials. From the second TPU link:
The transaction is expected to generate proceeds of approximately 59 million Singapore dollars (USD$46 million), net of all fees, which will be reflected in AMD's third quarter 2013 financial statements when reported on Oct. 17, 2013.

I just hope they can keep themselves afloat. I don't just appreciate competition, I more than anything fear it's absence. Without someone to compete to NVIDIA or Intel we would have $5000 Titan's and $3000 Extreme Editions :eek:. That might be exaggerating, but it's non the less a world I wouldn't like to be in.
Go out their and pick up an AMD product, and support the little guy :rockout:

Most if not all there growth is in Graphics and Visual Solutions (GVS) specific custom SoCs & Professional solutions.

Who said Consoles weren't profitable ?

They were expecting a single digit mid to high (7-8 est) % and ended up with a mid 10s (15% est)
Interesting is they plan to sustain that and possibly increase from that 15% as yields improve and wafer prices drop.

Competition of course is good, but Intel has been for some time competing against itself. Intel owns ~94% of the professional x86 market (and has been at least 90% for the last 5 years), but their chipsets and Xeon CPU line have remained pretty much static in price. Kind of shoots your weird theory down.
That might be exaggerating
Yes. Yes it is.
People have a certain amount of money to spend regardless of the number of vendors in the marketplace...and FWIW, when AMD and Intel were going toe-to-toe in CPUs (Athlon v Pentium) all that happened was they price matched each other. Have a grand in your pocket? If you were looking at the top bin from either company you might have got $1 change. Likewise the second tier CPU was around $500-700 on average - again, from both vendors.
The AMD Athlon (T-bird) launched at $850 in June '99, the 1GHz version at $1299 eight months later. In between Intel launched the Coppermine P3 at the same $850 price point. The pricing of both AMD and Intel was pegged pretty much equal up until Conroe launched.

GPUs? Yeah, heaps of competition. Nvidia price the GTX 690 at $999, AMD price the HD 7990 at $999. Equal performance and feature set usually equates to equal MSRP give or take 10-15% in general. Where it doesn't equate it becomes more a function of brand perception, and slashing prices, while attractive to the consumer, does little to enforce the perception of a strong brand. Neither AMD or Nvidia (or Intel for that matter) sell for any less than the sucker holding the wallet is willing to cough over, and why market shares have stayed pretty much static over the years.
but it's non the less a world I wouldn't like to be in.
Time to slash your wrists then. A duopoly of AMD and Nvidia seem to have reached an "understanding". Both content to wage war on bullet points rather than get into a price war. I doubt that situation will change unless inventory starts to back up.
Go out their and pick up an AMD product, and support the little guy :rockout:
Says the guy with the Ivy Bridge CPU and Z77 board :roll:

I'm not so sure HumanSmoke I appreciate this cynical nature of your comment, but thank you for the information. Their is plenty to be said, but your unreserved nature tells me it would be wrong to say anything.
Good luck, and please find it in yourself to be less negative.

Don't mind me. Feel free to contribute any theory you like- but I generally work on known fact, historical precedent, and business models rather than a wish list. Got a theory that holds water and is borne out by fact? definitely share.
Good luck, and please find it in yourself to be less negative.
You see it as cynicism when it is in fact pragmatism.

What I see is billion dollar companies acting like billion dollar companies. That's how they become...billion dollar companies. I could, I suppose, believe that some enlightened and fair world would exist if it were only for a fair marketplace....but then I remember (yes, remember) when we had not one, two, or three vendors competing but dozens...and you know what? when it came to prices they all charged like a wounded bull if the performance was there. At one time in the mid-90's $350-450 would get you the base memory capacity S3 Vision968, or Matrox Milennium, or ATI 3D Rage, Number Nine Revolution 3D, STM (Nvidia) Edge 2200, or 3dfx Voodoo Graphics...and more than a few others. Competition and lower prices is generally only applicable when one or more companies is chasing market share due to either lower performance and/or adverse sales from a brand under pressure.

In 808 posts here I don't think I've ever denigrated a hardware product regardless of vendor, nor any user for their choice of hardware...I am, however a realist when it comes to the companies that sell that hardware.

its already the case. look at the difference in prices of intel and amd and their respective performance differences. 20% performance gain for 200% price is not funny.

So once they strip off the profit from the sales of Austin and Singapore facility, they are still in the red? Well, time to sell more family silver!

It's nice to see AMD moving in the right direction financially. No doubt Kaveri will improve sales significantly as it's a game changer and industry changer. AMD has a lot of irons in the fire at the moment so some areas are a little stagnant but a lot is going on behind the scenes that will make AMD enthusiasts pretty happy in the not so distant future. AMD's more diversified Biz model will insulate them from some of the market whims and provide for more opportunities.

BTW, selling their real property assets and then leasing them back has nothing at all to do with sales revenues and profits. It does offer a long term tax advantage and improves cash for R&D which is a far better use of the capital.

Consoles sales to date are included in these financials but console production has just started to ramp so they don't have a big influence on these financials.

Yeah, the FX-9590 was a miss.
