AMD has typically done well as markets change, but waiting to invest in R&D in technology they apparently agree is going to get bigger seems a bit short-sighted. Without that investment how do they expect to get ahead of, or even keep up with, the curve?

AMD might not be leaving the industry so soon, but it may shrink down a little.

Please spare us the BS; people have been making the same dire predictions for AMD as long as I have been working here:10 years ago it was Itanium that was supposed to kill AMD, three years ago Larrabee, and now this non-descript "new technologies" that you're talking about, whatever they may be. Each time AMD had a viable answer. You're entitled to your opinion, but let's talk again early next year; when the market will be awash with AMD Zacate based notebooks that will change people's perception of what a netbook/light notebook is.

They are not; I incorrectly identified that capability as and example. My bad.

I hope AMD and Intel would merge, it could be a win win for both.

In five years today, without any major help, AMD may be leaving this industry. I do not just see how they will compete with Intel with the new technologies Intel is putting out.

How exactly is AMD a "follower" in DX11 when it was the first company to bring a DX11 GPU to the market?

A surprisingly tough quarter for AMD with a loss of 7% (relative to revenue). The more serious test comes in Q1 next year it would seem, but interestingly Dirk Meyer's tone seems to be that of one resigned to be a follower (DX11, tablet R&D).
