AMD for Sale?

AMD has hired JPMorgan Chase explore options, including the sale of patents, and possibly the sale of the entire company, reports Reuters. They attribute this to "sources familiar with the situation," but also have the following statement from AMD confirming the possibility of selling off technology, but stating the company itself is not on the market: "AMD's board and management believe that the strategy the company is currently pursuing to drive long-term growth by leveraging AMD's highly-differentiated technology assets is the right approach to enhance shareholder value. AMD is not actively pursuing a sale of the company or significant assets at this time." Thanks nin via Gizmodo.

Blame the Athlon XP - because that was when AMD started to drop the ball. This was the short time where they had a serious lead, and could have afforded to push the tech forward with a serious jump into dual and quad core cpu's that could have bested the core stuff from Intel by a margin and in price, doubling efficiency, investing in new architecture and cpu design that makes them even more effective etc.... They did nothing of the sort. And then Core tech and I7 came, and AMD got totally pwned.

Haswell is the final nail.
