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.

how come could AMD exist and be successful in pre-Athlon times when it only produced chips that performed worse than Intel's but were price competitive and now after it has developed (relatively) much better stuff in CPU, innovated interconnects, has leading GPU tech it struggles.
In addition while PC market is on the verge of slide down it's still much larger than it was then.
