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.

i don't think they could even find a buyer
nobody in their right mind would go headon with intel,


I was actually thinking someone would want to buy them for the graphics hardware, and transition the CPU side to focus on mobile. That way they aren't directly competing with Intel (yet).

and intel can't buy them thanks to some anti-competitive laws


Stranger things have happened, but you're right, it probably wouldn't be Intel. At least, not without some interesting courtroom antics.
