AMD Expects x86 to Remain Important Architecture for 25 – 30 Years.
Oh, if you didn't read, it was Rory Read who you agree with. Fancy that, Intel troll.
Will AMD stay in x86 business at least in 2-3 years? it's a big question.
Sold the building? You are CLUELESS regarding understanding of basic business concepts. You should stop posting regarding any business-related topic until you get a degree in business, such is the lack of your knowledge in this area.
Many companies in the world do a corporate sale/strategy leaseback as a way to inject immediate cash flow into the business while "exchanging" a high depreciation expense on the income statement into a lease expense which tends to be smaller, thus increasing earnings/net income. The company then leases back the building over 10-20 years.
"For some corporations, the objective in sale/leaseback transactions is simply to show increased earnings. This is accomplished by converting equity - in the form of buildings with little or no debt - into cash, which may be needed for business expansion or other purposes, such as immediate cash flow infusion for day-to-day operations/payment of obligations.
Sale/leasebacks provide an opportunity to raise cash while maintaining operating control of the property as if the property were still owned by the corporation. The sale/leaseback, in such a case, is an excellent way to raise capital and, therefore, is a financing technique. Annual lease costs can be equated to the interest charged in a traditional financing situation. If a corporation can borrow funds at 10% for 15 years and if a sale/leaseback has an effective lease cost of 9%, then the sale/leaseback can be an effective vehicle."
Sale leaseback is NOT the same as selling the building which is called "Disposition of real estate assets," whereby the actual legal ownership of the asset is transferred from one party to another.
Over the course of following your posts, I realized you haven't got a clue about how businesses function, and have very narrow understanding of finance and accounting-related concepts, nevermind the specific intricacies of the semi-conductor space. I don't know what your career is, but you should stop posting about business-related topics since you don't grasp the concepts.
that's for both the replies of my comment.
@avon4balls amd did a bad comeback with bulldozer they lost tones of money because of the long r&d and the poor performance that didn't get enough customers. Do you have any proof that ms or Sony are going to ditch amd gpus after a non-problematic cooperation the last 8 years?
I see a processor with great potential to scale up to 50 cores or whatever they want. they are going to make even better ipc in the next generations. I was about to get a 3770k plus a good motherboard, because i compile a lot of staff and my i7-720qm laptop cpu is weak for my verilog simulations, but I changed my mind after those results.
Not to mention that the user in that link was cherry-picking benchmarks that favors FX-8350. So, even with cherry-picking you fail to prove ur previous comment.
prove me why those benchmarks favor amd? are those compiled with amd's compiler? are those using any amd's private instruction set? are you just addicted to trolling.
I am the only one here placing benchmarks and actual numbers and I am the one who gets all the hatred(a.k.a. thumbs down)
For example, He could have picked those benchmark
Also, Why you are ignoring the other part of my comment. You have yet to explain how FX-8350 performs on par with 1K$ intel. i7 3930K/3960X smokes FX-8350 in almost every mutli-threaded benchmarks and lightly-threaded benchmark.
At most 10% ?!! This comment proves how dishonest you are
Here it wins by 40% against FX-8350
Here it wins by 43%
Both of those benchmarks were taken from your own biased link. In most of the other benchmarks, it was over 20% faster. And yet you say 10% at most ?!! Stop being dishonest.
For what it is, FX8350 is actually very decent. It's a good alternative to i5-3570K for those who need a CPU for multi-threaded tasks. Us gamers will choose i5-3570K but I know if I was doing video encoding or rendering, I'd take FX8350 in a heartbeat at $195 over an i5.
In relative standing to i7, the FX8350 is no worse than X1100 X6 was to Lynnfield and SB i7s. If all you care about is games, then AMD hasn't been worth buying for gamers since 2006, way before Bulldozer/Vishera. This constant anti-AMD hate is more than just Bulldozer. Just sayin'.
Also it's rumoured that the next version of Surface Pro from Microsoft will feature an AMD APU.
As far as performance X86 desktop solutions, AMD has been planning for over five years to eventually offer APUs in the entry, mid-level and high-end desktop segments. This is a smart and cost effective solution that will meet most PC users needs very well, use less power, produce less heat and deliver equal or better performance than all but the very highest priced discrete CPU/GPU combos.
Consumers win and fanbois lose.
AMD's future is not in x86, but ARM-based designs as well and of course their exciting and promising HSA/GPGPU tech. The company still creates multi-billion dollar revenue as of 2011. The real reason AMD is so behind Intel is the lack of access to the cutting edge process technology which has been getting insanely difficult and expensive to develop/have since the migration to the 45nm and beyond nodes.
