As long we have the current system of litigation with judges that think they know the truth even better they think that they are the repository of the thrust AMD has little or none chances of getting bigger. Intel needs AMD for antitrust reasons and will not give them to much space to grow using the legal system. The choice is, in my amble opinion, wrong because the new CEO will try to keep AMD a PC chip maker. The CEO should be e person that wants conquer the future with innovative ideas knowing that many stockholder will not like it.

@help.fulguy- great point. Several firms are chasing the tablet market with ARM-based processors. If they have a compelling product, they kind of have no choice. But nobody is making money except Apple. Nothing is going to change until an OEM comes up with a true competitor to the iPad. If and until that happens, these guys are fighting it out in the trenches for design wins that ultimately mean very little revenue.

@p_g, Other than Apple, who the heck is making money in tablet. If you hear the wildly successul Tegra2 (as per lot of analysts out there including EET), even their Tegra revenue in Q2'11 was "STEADY". Its the battle of the OS in Tablet and only ios is winning and Android & Win are losing. HW has nothing to do with it.

For that purpose Intel is not doing too good in tablet market. Good time to gain that market.

We apoligze for the mistake we made. The story is now corrected. Lenove bought IBM's PC business in 2005.

AMD may well go back into OLPC project - not One Laptop Per Child, One Loss Per Ceo ;)

Dylan, Sad to see that there is no one at EETimes doing a Proof read, before you post the article. In the 3rd Para, it says Lenovo bought AMD's PC Business. What? Should be IBM.

Frontal attack never work if your enemy is Intel. We have tried it before at other places. Cyrix failed. Transmeta failed. Please remember how Intel was transformed from a memory company into CPU company. May be a metamorphosis is needed for AMD also. Why do you have to follow Intel? I have seen a lot of smart people in AMD. You can totally create something new & OWN the market!
