I use to work for a large litho vendor installing machines worldwide. I was always surprised just how slow AMD worked compared to it's competition in Taiwan and Korea. Like 100X slower. It brings me no surprise that AMD are struggling in this saturated industry.

The carpetbaggers of the management team are selling off anything they are not ruining. Great job guys (and gal)! This company is going to implode.
