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'd be a lot happier if DEC was still cranking out Alphas.


What advantages would you say the Alpha has over something like ARM or MIPS, or SPARC even? I know ARM doesn't have 64 bit yet, but the others do, so assuming ARM64 is just like ARM...
