Kudos on a very well written article. AMD is in a very hard place. It's latest Bulldozer architecture is already inferior to Intels. AMD only did well when its Athlon and Opteron designs were better performing than the Intels designs and even then barely. Intel is also looking down the barrel with their finfet technology which AMD does not have an answer for. So for now it will stay in the low margin space. If they decide to move to ARM will that mean abandoning the Bobcat line? I would hate to be in Rory's shoes.
