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.

. It would be great to go back to AMD processors but they just don't cut it for top-tier gaming any more.
You should look at the piledriver(especially the 8350 vishera's) benches especially with some of the new optimizations around. They're at, equal or beat the I7, in other cases under perform by just abit and you're paying $150 less for the chip.

My previous rig before my 965x4BE was a dualcore intel, I'm looking at building a new rig soonish and I'll probably be sticking with AMD. Though even with that, I'm still arguing as to whether or not to upgrade at all, this current rig is still chugging along fine nearly 3 years later and I'm still not seeing serious problems with gaming. I might just wait 9mo for the prices to bottom out and pick up some of the stuff cheap.
