AMD "Advanced Micro Devices has hired JPMorgan Chase & Co to explore options, which could include a potential sale, as the chipmaker struggles to find a role in an industry increasingly focused on mobile and away from traditional PCs, according to three sources familiar with the situation." Woah. Bad news for competition in the x86 space.

Good to know. Although Intel has future competition from the entire ARM ecosystem, right now their only true competitor is AMD. If AMD were bought out (especially by Intel) we'd have a behemoth that would make Microsoft and Apple look like babies.
