Default Re: AMD layes off employees,in seeking cost savings

AMD really had a very bad time on the last quarter, they are now starting to lose marketshare to Intel as their Q1 2007 revenue will be about $1.225bn, missed AMD $1.7bn target due to lower CPU prices and sales. AMD CPUs and ATI GPUs are getting less popular now, today AMD CPU price cuts will make it far worsen outlook on Q2 2007 revenue, it could go down to about $700m or less if sales not pick up to regain marketshare.

If R6xx and AMD quad core CPU line not sell well then AMD will be out of business.
