AMD Cuts 1,400 Jobs

Advanced Micro Devices cut 1,400 jobs worldwide, today, which represents over 10% of the workforce of the chip company, reports the Statesman Business Blog. Word is: "The job cuts and an ongoing company efficiency program are expected to save the company $200 million from its operating expenses next year. The cutbacks affected the company’s worldwide operations and included slightly more than 300 jobs in Austin." Thanks Ant via Slashdot.

After the abject failure of Bulldozer, and the ominous firing of their CEO before its launch, I had a feeling this was coming. Sad stuff to hear about them losing their jobs.

I as well hope AMD pulls through, but it seems the only thing they're getting right at the moment is their GPU lineup, and by association, their APU.

With no-one to push Intel, the tech will flounder, and get very expensive, very quickly. Bad news for everyone outside of Intel's HQ.

Edit: Grammar Failure.
