Well, that would be hard. But they can be less arrogant, less evasive, friendlier to the ecosystem, and more open to partnership. Do they have the DNA for that?

May be they should go a step further and stop asking Daddy (ATIC) for more money everytime they are in trouble. That way they will feel the real hunger...

Samsungs Logic/Foundry technology is part of IBM's fab club. One might also recall the announcement of both Samsung and GF offering a "synchronised" 28 nm technology what is based on mentioned fab club.

@Dr_Trevorkian- I found this an interesting question and posed it directly to an AMD spokesman. The spokesman reported that the amended deal with Globalfoundries has no implications for its x86 license from Intel. "We have the ability to produce processors anywhere we chose from the perspective of the cross license," the spokesman said.

Does this impact their x86 licensing agreement with Intel? I thought that they were required to fabricate their own x86 chips.

Better getting into shape now, this hunger is the hunger to end all hungers.

GF will be hungry, and that could result in making them very competitive. Don't write them off just yet.

Very bad news indeed for GF, and more precisely ATIC!

IBM don't release any figures for their semiconductor division. I suspect that at best they break even. Are Samsung involved in the IBM fab club?
