Re: Massive AMD Price Drops on X2 6000+ and X2 5600+
AMD needs to cut prices even deeper to make thier procs attractive.AMD prices are still out of wack with Intels C2D performance.AMD needs a sugar daddy just to keep daily operations going.With capital expenditures cut by over 50% that FAB upgrade will take allot longer now,which means barky will hit retail in good #'s even later then fans hoped for.AMD does not have a war chest to fall back on,and stock prices will continue to tank as will profits.Mark my words,they will report another loss in Q3 to rival the one they just tossed on wallstreets,and share holders heads the other day.Not to mention they just finished tapping out the 10 billion with a B dollar line of credit they had,with that German holding company,and now have to start paying it back !!!
Another thing that needs serious deep cuts,are executive salaries in AMD's board room.

When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men living together in society, they create for themselves, in the course of time, a legal system that authorizes it and a moral code that glorifies it. -Fred Bastiat-
