OSNews, Generic OSes A list of intriguing rumours from the week that was... Firstly: Dell looking to buy AMD. Having one of its best financial years with revenue of $6.49 billion and net profit $471 million, the 'AMD in crisis' reports just won't go away. While news of execs leaving the company, and the almost total rebranding of its processor line-up won't help to quell this, the company sure looks healthy, at least in the short term. Although demand for its products is rising with demand exceeding supply in some cases. I can't help but think this has all to do with the Windows/ARM announcement.

Hi, yes I think you're right - ARM sounds like a decent possibility for next-gen consoles if it can deliver enough power.

The consoles would run cooler and be quieter, and like you say it would be easier to port games between mobile/tablet platforms and consoles.

I didn't mean to slate the PPC platform, but it is true that it's not remained competitive because of lack of investment, which caused Apple to move on, that in turn made things worse.
