AMD today announced revenue for the first quarter of 2011 of $1.61 billion, net income of $510 million, or $0.68 per share, and operating income of $54 million. The company reported non-GAAP net income of $56 million, or $0.08 per share, and non-GAAP operating income of $92 million.

“First quarter operating results were highlighted by strong demand for our first generation of AMD Fusion Accelerated Processing Units (APUs),” said Thomas Seifert, CFO and interim CEO. “APU unit shipments greatly exceeded our expectations, and we are excited to build on that momentum now that we are shipping our ‘Llano’ APU.”

AMD have been "making money" for the last year or so.

Anyone else get the impression that GPU's aren't real profitable? I mean they've been selling the crap out of GPU's for a while now (Since the 4000 series anyhow) and all they want to talk about are APU's. Confusing?

Of course they want to talk about their APU's, it's the future of their company and the only leg up they have on Intel. For now.

I agree, but it would be interesting to see a break-out of how the discrete GPU division is doing.

Nevermind, it's in there. lol

i like AMD, so im glad to see them doing well :)!
they offer the more affordable route around most things (CPU's, GPU's and their motherboard's are cheap even if they dont produce them :p) which is good for the average buyer who doesnt always need the best performance.
i hope they keep it this way, but challenge more in the high end market so nobody can complain :p!

Good to see AMD is gaining some $.

Future is mobile business, small powerful netbooks and handheld devices are going to be the next storm in IT. I wish AMD will jump into the mobile phone chip making band and make an impact (if they don't have a chip yet).

This is a trick of numbers due to the deal they cut with Global Foundaries. They basically are hiding their R&D operatings cost in a delayed payment plan with GF. The point of the deal worked though as AMD made their numbers, which were decent look much, much better to investors.

This is it people. AMD has bet the company on future sales figures of Bulldozer. If it flops, which I don't think will happen, AMD will owe GF a lot of money next year.

hence the difference in net income between GAAP and non-GAAP. Still even with all factors in they're making money. Not alot of it but some.

Every heard of Imageon? They were ATI first then AMD in '06, but then sold that part off to Qualcomm in 2008. Right around the time of the smartphone age. Sad they did that, even after they said there was huge potential in handheld devices.

Can't even remember what devices they were in but it was a lot.

the gpu's in the snapdragons are amd design.
intels igp's are also amd design.

but yeah, might have paid off to keep cellphone gpu division alive for a little while longer.
maybe make a new one ? :p

is not an APU per se, as there are 2 seperate dies for CPU/GPU, and not only one, like in AMDs products ;)
It's one single die, it also incorporates the PCIe controller and the memory controller. It's coupled with a simple south bridge that has USB, SATA, extra PCIe and some other small things like that (exactly like the AMD APU is). You're thinking of the old Pentium G9xxx series CPU that was on the old LGA1156 platform.

Another example of an Intel APU is the Atom 510, 525, 410, 425 and so on... they all have integrated graphics on the CPU die. "APU" is just some invented term (marketing blurb), the technology and the products existed long before AMD cooked up their first ever APU.
