AMD has no unique products. It is not worth buying. They should have stayed with Intel as their production house, they would be much better off.

Why would a company like Samsung be interested in x86 CPU portfolio?? They already rule application processor with ARM CPU. AMD is gone to easy money (Petro dollars) to rescue company. I don't think any of listed companies can offer easy money to them. They have to prove to others they can survive by themselves.

Yea, I think Samsung would be very interested to complete its hardware coverage with x86 CPU portfolio.

AMD can get the funds pretty easily. What they really need now is innovation. Though the current Market Cap is ~3B, the moment there is an acquisition rumour it will go to 15-20B easily because of the Patents and IP they hold.

Microsoft may be most suitable buyer.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for todayís commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
